In the last 24 hours...

This is what 38 looks like

And I like what I see.

So far it's been a great birthday - some good presents, lunch out with Fatty, lots of phone calls.  I'll be making margaritas later on and eating some chocolate cake.  I'm looking forward to it.

Lecia asked me to write a guest blog post about motherhood.  I was completely flattered to be asked and am honored to share some of my thoughts with her and all of you.

I hope you have a great weekend.  We've got a garden to plant and I have a new computer to figure out.  Fun stuff!



happy happy birthday, erin!! xoxo


Happy birthday!


How refreshing to hear from someone who's not groaning about getting older yet again!

I wouldn't have guessed 38 - I bet sewing keeps you young :)

Happy Birthday,

Erin in PA

I wanted to post what 38 looked like on my blog, too, but I'm peeling something awful from my weekend of too much sun, and figured it wouldn't be a fair representation :-D

Sounds like you're having a great day! Enjoy the rest of it :-)


You look beautiful, my dear!

Happy birthday!


38 looks beautiful indeed! Cheers to you. Thank you again for your lovely post; I've read it through several times & I get a bit teary every time I read it. Just perfect.

Thanks for all the inspiration...sewing and otherwise. Maybe now I'll be inspired to post my 38!


Hello, Erin. It looks like we share a birthday also, though I'm a year ahead of you at 39! Looking forward to another year of inspiration from house on hill road.


Happy Birthday Erin - you young thing! Such a lovely post about your Mum and being a Mum. It's the best gift in the world really! Hope you have a wonderful day!!

38 looks fabulous. Happy birthday, Erin. Here's to another year of great eating, drinking, traveling, creating, and enjoying life. I think it gets easier with every year.


Happy birthday! What a wonderfully written guest post about your own mom and being a mom.


Happy birthday! I second Jane - 1971 was a fine vintage indeed.
