Good morning, and welcome to this meme, hosted by There’s A Book.

Today’s prompt is to share bits of favorite birthday moments.

Favorite birthdays for someone like me, who has had a LOT of birthdays (LOL), are a bit harder to select.

I guess I could go with some that feature fabulous cakes, or I could focus on the people at the birthday “party.”  I think I’ll go with the latter.

There are a couple—I can’t just pick one!—beginning with one a couple of years ago, when I traveled to Sedona, AZ, one of my favorite vacation spots with my youngest son and his wife.  We enjoyed the beautiful Red Rock Country and even rode a jeep up into the higher places.

Then my birthday THIS year (it was in October) was an unexpected treat when a group of friends (people I met in unique circumstances) gathered at one of our favorite restaurants for a festive lunch.

Convivial Moments on a Birthday


I could probably go on and on, since I’ve had SO many birthdays so far…but I won’t.

Except that as far back as age seven, I recall birthday parties with some of my favorite folks like my grandmother.  We always had cake, and I got to sip the delicious-smelling coffee.   Maybe that’s how I came to be such a caffeine addict?

So, those are just a few birthdays, but from this post, you can gather that a variety of experiences combine to make up my “favorite birthday” moments.

What about the rest of you?  Anything you’d like to share?



Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
