Birthday party for a blogger!

Today is a friend of mine's birthday. This very blog brought her into my life. She commented one day saying "Hello from another 40-something woman from Amersfoort". I commented back to her through my blog. We not only were the same age but from the same city. Later she started her own blog and we met for real.

She is a warm and caring person and I am so glad that this blog brought me her friendship. It is her birthday today and she is very busy now working so does not have time to blog as she used to. So I thought it would be fun to hold a birthday party for her here on my blog. Please help me to wish
Carolien the most wonderful day today!

Happy birthday to you my dear friend! Time to get together soon so I can give you a little birthday gift...

I hope you have a wonderful day.
I met Carolien also, and she is just the nicest person you could ever want to meet.
Love Nancy/Mom
PS: I love Carl Larsson prints, but you know that.

We hebben elkaar nog nooit ontmoet maar ik bekijk zo af en toe je Weblog en hoor Heidi wel eens over je vertellen. Een leuke dag gewenst.

Hoi Jarige Carolien,

Hi Heidi,

I was surprised to find some mails from people I don't know directly from blogging ... and now I understand! :) And I see comment on your post as well, my goodness! (Have to catch up with that later ...) I feel a bit shy about all this, all this sweet attention ... I can't believe this!!!
Thank you very, very much, everybody. I don't know what to say. Well, in any case: there are so many sweet people in 'blogger land' and I feel very touched by that from time to time. And today is a very, very special day to think of this and thank you for all your kindness.

And you, dear Heidi, BIG HUGS! And you shouldn't give me another present, this surprise was a big one already! I love that picture you posted as well.
Thanks also for your e-card. It's very special to get some greetings from a cat on your birthday ;)

I will post about my birthday on my blog soon (I hope! My blogging activity is disastrous at the moment. Well, new year, a new try??? Some more rest required, ahum. I will try!).

Take care & hope to see you soon,

Heidi, it has been awhile since I visited but want to thank you for your sweet card. You are always so thoughtful and I appreciate your words.

Hope that you are feeling better.

Have a great day,
