William and Me

“We have within ourselves
Enough to fill the present day with joy,
And overspread the future years with hope.”

William Wordsworth
born April 7th

I have always been proud to share my birthday with Mr. Wordsworth and have always thought this old postcard to be one of the most delightful illustrations of pure happiness I have ever seen.
Like the pair in the picture, Edward and I are off to have a happy day!

    I am not surprised that you would share your birthday with Mr. Wordsworth.

  11. Happy Birthday to you! Alas, a physical reminder of my thoughts of you will not be there on this actual day. Does it count that I've been thinking about your upcoming birthday for over a week??

    Have a wonderful day and I hope the few snow flurries in the area reach your snug cottage and make you smile.

    Know that you are loved lots by lots and I hope to see you soon when I'm in town.

  32. This weather, I tell ya.

    The snow carried many wishes that I was sending your way for your birthday. Did the wish of a happy day fall on to the end of your nose? Because that is where I told it to land.

    Love Renee xoxo
