Celebrating May

 Hello Ladies!

Dearest sisters (I have 3) and
other girlfriends,
will you celebrate May with me?

Why May?
Because it's my birthday month
and I think I should celebrate it the whole month long.

Don't you think so?

I'm going somewhere special,
somewhere I've never been
(and can only visit in my imagination).

Can you guess where?

Who knows what I'll do when I get there,
I may even get a tattoo.

Want to come along?


  1. I'll join you, but no tattoos for me! Although, that one you posted is intriguing! Happy Birthday, sweet Dewena! We have 3 out of 5 of our children having birthdays this month!

  2. May is truly a reason to celebrate!! Wishing you a wonderful birthday month.

  3. Happy birthday month. John always teased me and said I celebrated my birthday all month long! I thought that was what you were suppose to do! LOL. How exciting that you are getting to go to Paris!


  4. Wherever you go, I will follow, for we are sure to have an enchanting time, as we will be in sweet Paris (say like the French, 'Paree')! I say we start with a silky cafe au lait, accompanied by a warm chocolate croissant, while we watch the fashionable French dash about their daily routines, stopping for fresh baguettes and flowers. A glass of wine, a bit of brie, et voilà! -une belle vie!

    This year, if I'm not mistaken, your birthday falls on Mother's Day, does it not? Bon! That calls for a celebration even the French haven't seen!

    Are we there yet?


  5. May is my month too!! Yippe!!.......yes let's celebrate all month long!!!! After Paris.....where?.......maybe Bora Bora?

  6. You are going to Paris..I'll pack my bags! How exciting. I can't wait for details. Even though it's been a while since I was there the memories are as fresh as if I were there yesterday.

  7. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! springtime may in paris... with YOU and poppy and beach gypsy and kimberly... and echoes of eartha kitt... and a light rain...

    XO T

  9. Happy Birthday! I really think one should celebrate all month. One day is simply not enough.

  10. You only have to ask once - my bags are packed and I'm ready to go with you, Dewena! Happy Happy Birthday in advance, and of course you must celebrate all month! How exciting about your trip - Paris is the most awesome place to be celebrating! Enjoy!

  11. Oh Dewena, this is my most favorite post of yours yet. Yes, I'll come along, and now I know why we get along so well - May is my birthday month too, so let's celebrate it all month, shall we? Oh, that tattoo is oooolaaalaaa, I love it. The girls have been to Paris, but it is my dream to visit someday.

    Happy first day of May, dear.

  14. Happy Birthday month dear Dewena,
    Wishing the loveliest of ladies a splendid month!
    Four of our family members have Birthdays this month too.
    Now back to the trip, of course I will be there, forget unpacking the apartment here in the states, and all of the worries of the day. Take me away to Paris and let us shop, treat ourselves to fine pastries and sip the best wine!

  15. I would LOVE to go to Paris with you ;)

    Happy Birthday month!
