Birthday Season Around Here

Today is a shared birthday in our family:

my dad and my grandson made their grand appearances on September 15.

The first in 1928, the second in 2006 (right, Danica?) How special! Seventy-eight years later...

I don't know why, but I think that is really special. I love shared birthdays. Rick, my husband, shared his birthday with his own father. How much better does it get than that?

Today we also will celebrate two other September births:

Bri (Sept. 6, 1982) and Brey (Sept. 13, 2007). Isn't our God so very good at making special people, special lives, special gifts to families?

This is a heart-warming day for me.

Lael was born the morning of my 23rd birthday. It gets more fun each year, as she gets into special traditions. Now we plan "our" birthday together. Makes great memories, to be sure!

it took me a few minutes to figure out that "Brey" is Aubrey.
That's a new one to me! I thought they called her "Scoobs". haha.

DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com
Bringing Out Your Inner BOLD!
Bill Blass said, ìStyle is primarily a matter of instinct.î Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Clever and chic for Janie may be yesterday ís yawn-fest for Carol. Different tastes in dècor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if itís not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bold, baby! Bring out the Y-O-U!
Boldly say what you want to say when designing a room. Make a statement and let your personality shine through. If you go in for the palest blues to soothe and relax, add a custom zing to make it pop! Love black and white photography? Maybe even some of that ultra-hot photo alphabet wall art in black and white? Splash in some passionate pink or revved up red on the wall to make it sizzle.
No longer are walls content with neutral shades. Any color of the palette goes! Splash on muted melons or eccentric eggplants with savvy sage. Classic colors cozy up with velvety crimsons and Dijon yellows. Color is fantastically bold and beautiful! Rich textured throws, swags, rugs and runners jazz up every room, every time.
Patterns are all the rage now, too. Twists and twirls, paisleys and pearls! Did you ever in a million years think of dotting stripes and striping dots? Designers these days are pulling out all the geometrical stops. Paisley mixes with all sorts of combinationsóchecks, polkas, and weathered solids. Discover a new way of looking at the world around you in different shapes and designs.
Mix it all with gorgeous gilding in silver and gold. Toss in a few well-chosen accents óbold and beautiful. And with the trend of decor becoming more and more personalized, a meaningful piece of photography will make you feel right at home. Black and white as well as the historic look of sepia photography looks gorgeous in any room. Add all these ingredients together, and youíve got yourself a decorating design that not only expresses your individual style but does so as personally and beautifully as you want it to.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own personal sense of style. Put it out there for the world to see and donít look back! Embrace your individuality whether your nature is ìJanie jazzedî or ìCarol calmî. Express yourself! When people enter your home theyíll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.

Kara was born on my grandma's birthday, and Ian was born on my brother's. I think shared birthdays are pretty special too!
