"Up Close With Val" and Birthdays!...

Happy Saturday, readers of mine =)!!  There are alot of birthdays to celebrate in my world.  My best friend from middle school and high school is having a birthday today.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jennifer!!  I won't tell anyone how old you are, sweetie ;-).  Chelsea turns 20 tomorrow!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Baby Girl, Roo!!!  Krissy has a birthday on Monday, too, if anyone wants to send her an e-card or email.  If you don't have her email address and want it, please ask and I will send it to you.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my dearest, sweet, sister-o'-mine!  I miss you so much!!   You three are so, so special to me!  All born within three days, amazing!  I love you guys!!!                    


I have a new installment for "Up Close"!  I was able to get to Krissy's computer and upload some pictures!  Yay!  I hope someone is able to guess this one.  I know that the last one was too hard for you guys and I had to give you extra clues.  So, here is the picture.  If you have a guess as to what this picture is, leave your answer in the comments section or send me an email at  I will announce the first correct guesser in a day or two.  Good luck and have fun!!


A fellow journaler just started up a new journal and needs some readers.  Noelle at
