Birthday Fun and a Jaunt Down Memory Lane!
This hop is all about birthdays since Carrie-Ann is celebrating hers. So for my contribution to the birthday bliss, I'd like to share my favorite birthday memory. The memory itself doesn't start out real well. The year I turned 20, I was in my second year of college. I was also in this art history class that had I paid more attention I would've been fine in. Yeah, I wasn't real interested in paying attention. Anyway, so I'm in the midst of this class and studying for a huge test when I got a phone call. My great grandfather had passed. I had no idea what to do. Go home? Take the test my mind wasn't on? My BF who is now my DH helped out. I made it to the glass, but I didn't pass the test. Bombed it like you wouldn't believe. But, I realized that I couldn't let the grief take over. We went to the calling hours--on my birthday--and through it all DH was right there. My favorite part, which it was a cruddy day, but my favorite part was the cake he'd made me. He didn't have any one particular color of frosting and he'd remembered I had a hippie streak a mile wide. The frosting was a swirl of every color and a little jagged. But it was the best cake ever. That's my memory.
So, now that you've read my little jaunt down memory lane, here's the payoff. I've got a $5 GC to Changeling Press up for grabs. What do you have to do? Tell me about your favorite birthday memory! Sure. Leave your comment and your email. Remember, each comment is not only an entry into my giveaway, but also to the MAIN giveaway. Yep. I'd love for you to follow me on Facebook, follow my blog, and to follow me on Twitter, but they aren't expected. Do that because you want to.
