My Birfday


Don’t you love how kids say birfday? Anyway, today is my birthday. I’m 25. I don’t know how Ross is nearly 21, but it makes the math a lot more difficult, doesn’t it?

I’m going to see Coco for my birthday. I might kidnap her. News and photos later.

Meanwhile, here’s a photo of the goats enjoying the newly-fenced Blueberry Hill field.

Also, check out this article in today’s Charleston Daily Mail: Area Artists, Dreamers Underwrite Endeavors on Fundraising Website. I’m interviewed in there about my Kickstarter experience.

    I know the feeling. My oldest son turned 42 just last week and I don’t know how he got that old. I certainly am not a day over 30 myself.
    I hope you have a happy birthday and maybe bring home that sweet dog. I know you miss her.

  2. Miss Judy says:

    Happy Birthday!I could knock 10 years off my oldests age and it still wouldn’t compute with how old I think I am…on most days. Enjoy your day.

    Happy Birthday!

  15. holstein woman says:

    Oh happy day, happy day, happy day to you. May today be all you could ask for.
    My daughter is ??? I don’t think I can figure it out anymore, maybe 36 and that makes me chasing dirt!
    Every time I looked in the mirror the last year I couldn’t recognize the woman in the mirror. I just had to accept the look. No one else was around. Not even the face was recognizable, but it looked like me, only I wasn’t 18 anymore??????????????????

  16. Ramona Slocum says:

    Happy Birthday Suzzane. I am sooooooooooooooooo happy for all the good things happening in your life. All the grassy fields for the animals, and the barn. It makes my heart sing just to read all the happiness in your website.
    Have a wonderful Birth Day.

  20. Old Geezer says:

    I, too, am an April child. And, I can truthfully say that being an Old Geezer isn’t so bad after all — most of the time, anyway. Nothing to be ashamed of.

    So, Happy Birthday, however many.

  21. Murphala says:

    :yes: Yep, we Aries gals are a bunch, aren’t we? πŸ˜‰ Happy Birthday! Mine was just Saturday, so I’m guessing then that I’m only 4 days older than you… :devil2: Have a wonderful day! And a wonderful year to follow!

  22. liz2 says:

    Happy birthday,Suzanne!

  23. cabynfevr says:

    Happy Birfday Suzanne!! What a week this has been for you! The goats on the grassy hill remind me of when I was a kid. We were in VT and the cows were grazing on a hill. My Dad told me they were a special breed called Hillside cows. They were bred that way with two long legs and two short legs. lol Of course I believed him πŸ˜€ So I’m assuming you have the Hillside Breed of goat???

  24. mamawolf says:

    Have a wonderful birfday with Ross, Weston, Megan and the rest of your “family” Give Coco a big hug – hope you get to bring her home soon.

    Happy happy Birfday! πŸ˜† May you have many more. Wouldn’t it be the best present to bring Coco home?


  41. MousE says:

    ps it’s not every day you turn 25! Perhaps some pink fuzzy dice for the truck’s rear-view mirror are in order!

  42. Butterbean says:

    Happy Birthday to you! I am singing, you just can’t hear me! Happy 25th Birthday!! :fairy:

  43. Squeegees Mom says:

    Personally, I like birthdays. You get cake and ice cream. It is ok to blow the diet and eat multiple slices. You often get presents. Lots of phone calls and emails and cards. Gosh, I don’t mind getting a year older to get all of the above. I am still young inside. Even if the image in the mirror doesn’t match. That being said, Suzanne, I wish you the happiest day today, and hope you find many tomorrows of comparable happiness as well. Squeegee’s Mom

  44. FujiQ says:

    Awesome quote (I’m assuming this is you): “Backing Kickstarter isn’t a loan, and it’s not charity. It’s an investment in the spirit of entrepreneurship in America.”
