Happy Birthday Tracey!

"Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Tracey, Happy birthday to you!!!"

Yes friends that's right, this is a birthday celebration with many bloggers coming together to celebrate the birthday of our friend Tracey McNeely! Once again Joyce is the mastermind behind this surprise and you can find all of the details for the celebration here.

Goodness where do I begin ~ at the beginning I suppose!! Tracey and I have been blogging friends since July of 2011. She created her blog in January of that year and I began mine in April. I was awarded the Liebster blog award and knew right away that Tracey was one of the ladies I would pass it along to. I ran across her blog many times through Papertrey Ink challenges and hops. We have remained faithful, constant and supportive followers ever since. Neither of us misses a post from the other. I guess you could call us blogging besties!!! I appreciate her comments, encouragements, cheer leading and emails more than she may know. Even though we have never met face to face, I consider her a very good and very dear friend. I truly am blessed to have Tracey in my life.



This card is especially for you Tracey, clean and uncluttered just the way you like them!!! 

I thought you might get a lot of cake today, so I'm sending you flowers!!


Blessings on your birthday my sweet friend. 
When I count my blessings I count you twice {{HUGS}}!!! ~Lisa
