I couldn’t arrange the trip to Venice, so I bought the gondola to you, in the form of this delicious cake. 4 years ago

of all your fondest dreams.

on your cake
you get a wonderful surprise.
I wish for you that
whatever you want most in life,

I wish we were sisters,
so I could have known you
from the beginning.
I look forward to

Did you know that the word “aerospace” was coined the year you were born? So for your birthday, I got you a rocket ship so you can get in it and do all the traveling you want.:)
Happy, happy milestone birthday!! 4 years ago
I feel like the luckiest girl alive. The outpouring of love and good birthday wishes from so many people has me just flabbergasted. Including of course, all you 43T peeps! The wishes, the cheerbombing – I feel so special. :) :) :)
My family, friends, co-workers, everyone has been so nice. Here’s a pic of a new candleholder from a very dear friend that I just love.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! 4 years ago
Hope it will be a wonderful, graceful, disgraceful, devil-may-care decade!
Happy Birthday! 4 years ago

I was honestly VERY surprised when I saw this goal…you are definitely defying your age beautifully – a real inspiration to those of us in our thirties and forties!
I also want to take this opportunity to draw attention to what an asset you are to the 43Things community. Your comments are always so upbeat and sincere, and several times your posts have spurred me on towards making progress – especially on those flower photos and recreating my Great Grandfather’s story.
So – Happy Birthday, DoubleN, and many, MANY more! :D 4 years ago
I had the pleasure of meeting DoubleN last October at the Chicago 43Things Meet Up. Segsy was sitting between us so I didn’t get much of a chance to chat her up, but I did make sure I brought up her running and crunches, especially since I was just starting to run. Now it’s almost a year later and I’ve got my first marathon under my belt, and I wish I knew then what I know now because I would’ve bent her ear and asked all kinds of running questions. I truly am amazed at her, and hope that a decade from now I’ve learned from her motivation and lived up to her inspiration. Here are my wishes for her for the coming year:
May she find new routes to run, and as she runs them may her feet plant firmly and the weather cooperate. May she make more time for her mom, possibly by getting her involved in joint projects like volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. And may she find the funds and the time to travel somewhere that needs a passport, possibly so she can walk on the Great Wall of China. 4 years ago
I was only in my late 30s when my birthday candles melted together into a rather alarming conflagration. They were on a layer cake like this, but yours seem to be burning quite nicely! Hope you’re having a truly excellent birthday, leading into a fantastic decade . . . I can attest that the 50s are great! 4 years ago
I’m out of chocolate, so I’ll get myself good and schnockered tonight on your behalf! Wonka had one of them liquor factories, too, right? 4 years ago
May this be the start of a fabulously graceful and disgraceful decade for you! 4 years ago

And remember, now that you’re 50? You don’t have to be dignified all the time. So go have some fun!
I hope you have a splendid day and a really terrific year—

I was going to wish you 50 more, but I’m thinking that would be pushing it a bit. How about 35? That sounds better, doesn’t it?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Doub!! 4 years ago
