  5. My sister's birthday is the 8th. I bought her a hoops and yoyo card that says, "We bow before you, your Birthday Highness." And a translucent golden globe - a balloon out of blown glass, if you will. She deserves to be lifted up on her birthday, too. Must be somethin' special about these August girls...

  12. oh gorgeous sunflower field in the previous post. early birthday greetings to you, beth. mine is later on this month. and i agree... birthdays are not quite the same without balloons :)

  13. So this is your birthday month. I used to tell my kids their birthdays were the whole month. So many things were centered around the birthday person. They could pick what to have for dinner and pick a movie we would see. I hope you enjoy your birthday month and enjoy the bright colored balloons.

  21. Yes, lots of balloons, and maybe they could drop you off in that field of sunflowers, right in the middle, with a blanket and a basket for a lovely picnic...

  22. Happy early birthday if I don't remember on your actual one! I'd buy you a bunch of balloons if we didn't live so far away! Wnjoy your August Break - I've been loving mine and it's only been one day!

  23. I personally believe that everyone should celebrate a birthday week rather than day:) Have a super wonderful week!

  25. Good on you Beth, a month of "me" sounds like a great plan. As part of Susannah's August Break I am linking to a different person on the blog roll each day and today I've chosen you.
    Happy August Break!

  26. ha! how cool is that. My birthday is on the 6th. Honestly, I think my parents had very little to do over December because my sister is the 9th (which in SA falls on woman's day so she has a public holiday every year on her b-day) and my brother is the 29th, although he is a Virgo.

    Like you, I prefer small parties, or even just the family. Nothing much. Maybe dinner, a few laughs, love and companionship. Perfect! (although I have to admit that I would be happy to snuggle in with a good book as well).

  28. Aww of course you deserve balloons. I'll wish you a very happy birthday right here and now because I don't think I'll be around my computer on the 7th. Wishing you the very best of days.

  29. I'll be in-flight myself on the 7th - if I see a woman drifting in the clouds with a smile on her face, I'll know it's you, Beth. Happy Day!

  30. I like quiet birthdays too. I also like the way your photographs make me see life better. Thank you.

  31. I hope August is spoiling you.

    I'm thinking that these summer months are moving along a wee bit too fast for my liking.

    Speaking of balloons, have you seen Up?
    So good!
