Not today, tomorrow but as this has been declared Birthday Weekend we are already officially celebrating...

Time to throw open the curtains and let in the light...

Woot woot!

I hope that you all find something to celebrate this weekend too... :)

PS. To revisit last year's fête, click here--yes, these are the photos that almost got published in Ad...but didn't! Looks like I have things to work on in the year ahead...

  8. I thought your birthday was in SEPTEMBER........I remember when you turned 40 and went to your friends house.......that was 40 right?Can it be I have been following along for four years?That doesn't seem possible to me........

  9. Bonne Anniversaire, chère Heather! 44 sounds like a very special number to me, and I hope you celebrate it mightily! Tomorrow, we will raise a glass of homemade lemonade (or Champagne), with raspberries and blueberries in it, to you and to your long, healthy and happy future and delight in the present. Have a lovely time with your Three Guys and know that we will be celebrating you here! Happily, Leslie, with Scott, Henry and Bob

  10. Happiest of Happy Birthdays Heather!

    I wish you great cake, good wine, good food, and lost of love.
    The number won't change my mind that I think you are a mature barely thirty. :)

  11. Wishing you a stupendous birthday weekend, with all the people, dogs, and pleasures (love, nature, food, drink, wandering...) that you might most love.


  12. Happy birthday! (And many mooooore.) Sarah Vaughan really does have a divine voice, n'est pas?


    BIRTHDAY, SISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love you and am kissing you from afar! : )

  14. Wow - you bring such wonderful moments to my screen - you are almost ethereal - you have brought me back to earth knowing you have a birthday!! Enjoy - relax and soak it up - you deserve every good thing - cheers and HAPPY DAYS!!

  15. Hip hip hooray! Every best birthday wish! Rx

  16. May your 44th year be filled with happiness, good humour, contentment and great health. Joyeux anniversaire.

  17. Hope your birthday is every bit as lovely as the one you had last year. And how wonderful that those gorgeous photos almost made it into AD. As I once said in my birth country "Loloma levu" (much love) or as we say here Aroha nui (much love) and many blessings for your birthday and the coming year. Gallivanta

  18. Oh, my sweet! 44 is SUCH a magic number!! My sister takes 4:44 as a confirmation from God that she is on the right track when an email comes in at that time or something similar. I speak beauty--I swear that's the first word that came to my mind!--tranquility and strength over you in the coming year. Like muscles shot through with the divine impetus to apply toward the work for which you have always been intended! Light-filled, almost searing to the eye but with deep, enduring, goodness and uncompromised dunamis.


  19. Wishing you the happiest of birthdays! Hope you were feted and felt loved.
    I loved the image with your portrait in the antique mirror. It has an other worldly feel!

  20. Well, Heather...if you were closer I'd buy (I don't bake) you a cake and bring it over.

    In its stead?'s a song for you. Go to this (and skip to minute 2 or so...David's always loopily chattered on way too long before he gets around to actually singing...and I'm referring to him, not me, for once):

    It's a fine song for an adult's birthday, Heather.....:

    "Life is change,
    And change looks frightening
    'Watch that wind',
    I've been warned.
    But I live
    to feel this lightning
    Here in this perfect storm".

    Best wishes to you (and a big hey to nice Remi) on this, your birthday....

    David Terry

  21. Wishing you all that you wish for...and more. Happy and all year long!
    Joy Moos

  22. Happy birthday, chère Heather! Wishing you a marvelous day filled with cake and love from humans and pups alike! I'm sending you a big hug!

  23. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Heather... and a fabulous weekend...
    I am sure you did... :)
    I wish you 44 more and plus... xv

  24. Gorgeous photos!
    Happy Birthday!
    And trust me, the best is yet to come.

  25. Belated Happy Birthday Wishes!
