Birthday MONTH!

IMG_6346In my family, JULY has always been a month to celebrate. We start with July 4th celebrating our nation and freedoms. Then it moves steadily into a stream of celebrations. As a child, I loved it. Not only do I have a birthday in July, but it is/was/shall be cake month at our family gatherings.

IMG_6187 (1)My father has to share his birthday on July 14 with Bastille Day–the national patriotic day of France. My greeting to him for many years has been “Happy Bastille Day. Oh, and your birthday!” My sister’s birthday follows three days later and mine a week after that. My mother made homemade cakes for each birthday! What a fun month.

Now, July tends to be our family vacation time where all twenty of us try to get together. My parents’ anniversary and my sister’s anniversary fall in July. This year we are adding my niece’s wedding in two days!
