Forty-five is an interesting age…it’s tickling 50, it gives a fond, backwards glance to 40, and it means you can remember things from 20, 30, heck, even 40 years ago!
Odd to me, the cat’s got my tongue this morning…I figured I’d wax poetic for 12 pages about life and love and the pursuit of happiness in celebration of my birthday…instead? I think I’ll wish you a day full of peace and joy and delight in the little things.
Sounds like a winner to me :).

Happy birthday from one Aries to another! 45 was a very good year – I hope you enjoy yours!
We’re fine, like a good wine, huh? 🙂
I’m glad we were able to share part of our day with you on your SPECIAL day.
Happy Birthday! You are Awesome!
Chas, all y’all made the difference…it WAS fun, wasn’t it?
And guess what? Pierre has already emailed me!
Did you just blow out all your candles? My smoke alarm just went off.
Happy Happy Birthday !
hehe, it IS a fire hazard at my age, isn’t it!
Hippo, birdie, two ewes. Hugs! e-Mom
Cute, e-Mom….reeeeal cute…;)
Happy Birthday! We should all delight in the little things. Thanks for reminding me.
Know what? I’ve got another post goin’ on “the little things”…. And a plan to take some pics of three things that fit that category…. Glad you “appreciated” the little reminder :).
Happy birthday, my sweet friend.
May you have another year of blogging brilliance as a gift to us all.
And for THIS uber-sweet comment, I’m voting for YOU for “Good Mom”. Wait a second, you already are the “good mom” (how could I forget? 😉 ).
Thanks, Jenny. Can I quote you on this?
Wow, 45? That’s awesome! Happy Bday to you! I’ll turn 30 this year.. I’ll turn 30 this year. I don’t think that bothers me. Does it? Nah, I’m good. I think. 😉 I’m trying to keep it all in perspective… cuz if I let 30 bother me, well, then, I’m in trouble cuz I’m only going to get older the next year. 😛
Amber, this is how I see these things: it’s better than the alternative, right??? 😉 🙂 (and 30 is GREAT, no need to worry!)
Here’s a quote for you on this special day…
Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
LOVE THIS LOVE THIS LOVE THIS! (can you tell? 😉 )
Happy 45th birthday, my friend. Well, you are little younger than I am – hehe – that should make you feel good – lol..I hope that you are having a great celebration today!
I DO feel good, in part because of my bloggity pals. The celebration is low-key, and somehow, that just seems perfect :).
Hope you have a spectacular birthday!
Happy Birthday Robin…
I think you are and will be eternally young at heart. I never cared much for the term middle-aged. So when I was finished being young, I became old. But I do not think being old is bad because all of us can be young at heart.
Age is a state of mind, but sometimes my body likes to argue, and I think you’re one of the Y@H, too :).
Habby Pirthday from a brand spankin’ new reader!
Well, now…I’ve never heard it quite like that before…and WELCOME!!! 🙂
A bit late, no doubt, but I hope you have a wonderful day, week, year and the next 45 all follow the same pattern!
Better late than NEVAH! As far as I’m concerned, if you told me “Happy Birthday” next week, I’d be thrilled! 🙂 If my next 45 are anywhere near close, I’ll be in GREAT shape :).
CATHY T, CHRIS B, IAMWHOIAM, AOJ, KIM (RAINY…), & ERIN, THANK Y’ALL FOR YOUR SWEET, THOUGHTFUL BIRTHDAY HELLOs! 🙂

Happy Birthday, Robin! Hope you’ve had a picture perfect day! 🙂

Happy Birthday! I turned 45 on the 5th of this month. We are practically twins.
Happy 45… you wear it well!

My birthday greeting must have shown on the wrong post. See what happens when you have too many birthdays?
Actually…here is a quote for you that I remember: Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live!!!

The important question–what kind of cake?
Happy Birthday babe. I hope your day was wonderful and the cake was delicious!
Happy birthday to you!!! What a nice way to celebrate your birthday by wising good things for people.
I wish you all the best! (((hugs)))
There once was a blogger named Robin
Whose words made my head go a bobbin’
She was smart as a whip
For her I’d do a backflip
Boy, that Robin has got my heart throbbin’.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETIE!!!!
Hey, happy belated birthday!!! Hope it was a good one.
Happy B-day Robin! I love to make my celebrations last at least a month!
Happy Birthday, Robin! My life has gotten better every single year since 45!!
