#165-A SPECIAL HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A SPECIAL PERSON!

For once, I am having problems coming up with the words to describe today's birthday girl.  First of all,  I got away with referring to her as "OLE GAL" just the other day.  That means that she is a special person to take my ribbing.  But, there is more to her than that.

I am talking about Desiree the writer of the blog Driftwood Ramblings.  Desiree had been a consistent and wonderfully positive commentator on my blog since January 21, 2011.  I definitely look forward to her comments.

Desiree has become one of my favorite people for many reasons.  I started reading her blog shortly after she commented on mine.  Not only is it well written and informative but, it is filled with insight into a person in love with life and in love with the beautiful world she has around her.  She is a devoted ambassador for South Africa and shares all of its splendor and beauty with her "word art."  Not only that she accompanies her "word art" with her "photo art" which cements the whole experience into one grand escape to South Africa.

In and amongst the words and pictures are glimpses of Desiree, the person.  She comes across honest, sincere, and very devoted to her husband, her family, her country and of course her dogs.   Along with this she shares her love of nature and has a delightful way of writing about this love.  She approaches all of this like a fantastic adventure and this excitement resonates in every thing she writes.

To me, it is an adventure to follow her around and experience this this amazing person, and the place she calls home.

Happy Birthday, Desiree!
