Having a bithday with Internet friends can be a lot of fun. Today is my birthday and the online community has really made my day for me. Hundreds of Facebook friends have sent wonderful birthday wishes. Many of them were very personalized. Local and online merchants who I have shared my birth date with have sent special coupons and free stuff. What a great feeling.
This is one of the reasons why social media and the Internet is so popular. It can make you feel like you are surrounded by people who care about you.
I am really lucky today to also be physically surrounded by people who care. My son and his family sent a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
And my husband created a papaya stuffed with pistachio ice cream (two of my favorites) for me for breakfast in bed. His present didn’t disappoint either — A beautiful broach from the Jackie Kennedy reproduction line. The original was created by Coco Chanel, one of my favorite designers.
If you don’t know anything about Coco Chanel, check out her life in Wikipedia. She led quite a risque life, but was a great designer!
