Celebrate Adrienne Day

One day when I was in college, I walked out of my dorm room to discover that it was 'Celebrate Adrienne Day'. It wasn't my birthday or anything special... the dorm leaders just decided to randomly celebrate people.. and everyone had made a big poster saying nice things about me. What an awesome way to begin a day!

Last week actually was my birthday and we had some nice celebrations. My dad even made a fun treasure hunt out in the yard like we used to do when I was a kid. My sister is travelling right now.. so she couldn't be around, but she sent some nice gifts and this card that I absolutely love (made from

Anyway, I wanted to show this card... and then I thought it might be fun to scan a few other 'Adrienne' things that have been given to me over the years. This is an old songbook from a musical play. Isn't it awesome that it says Love is All?

These are the words inside:

How can I make you understand, Just what you mean to me? To have you near, to hold your hand, Seems more a dream than reality. You're like a princess in some fairy lore, I'm like a beggar who waits at your door. Love is all - I can give you dear. One desire to bless your life - With joy or happiness; Can't you hear - My heart softly call? Sweetheart mine, At your shrine - I lay my love, my life, my all!

This is also something I recently came across. My parents had a fire in their barn, where I had much of my memorabilia stored, and these things were salvaged. It was actually quite fun to re-discover all of these hidden treasures out of the ashes. And all the more reason to 'digitize' some of these lovely memories.

Well, this post has just been for me as a way to store my memories... but I hope you like my little Celebrate Adrienne Day too. Have you celebrated yourself lately?

A Whole Lotta Love,

Very good observations. Maybe adding some pictures is likely to make the blog post more intriguing.
