Hello,  Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage.  I’m so thrilled to see you today, because it’s my birthday!.. And I feel like I’ve been celebrating all month! Oh wait. .  I have! I’m feeling very grateful today. Grateful for my health, grateful for my charming and adoring husband. .. grateful for the best furry kids ever. ..Grateful for many friends… and very grateful for  a few very near and dear ones. All of which are part of my wonderful life. Oh and of course I’m grateful for YOU. Thank you for stopping by. I’d love to share a moment of the absolute BEST day of my life. . Its called “A Surprise Birthday Party!”


Ummmm. “Joe… Why are our neighbors partying on our deck?)



“Oh my goodness. ..” this is when I heard the lovely heavenly voices of family and friends singing “Happy Birthday”. ..♡and at that moment, I did fall totally apart. Don’t worry dear friend. . It was a good falling apart.







Thank you sweet Heather for holding Cami for me.  Hi Madeline and Katie!

Sister Eileen and Margo had lots to talk about. ..♡



My forever sassy friend Donna… Who I later  found out was a little under the weather. .. But she said she just had to be there. .. Now I’m all teary eyed again. ♡



All these ladies are so beautiful. .. inside and out.
