My heart is like a singing bird…
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
more rare than a blue moon
Some say it is special because it is a trinumeral day — 09 09 09 — and it doesn’t come around very often. Not even as often as a blue moon. I think a special guy who is celebrating his 09 09 09 birthday with me is even more rare.
9 days of birthdays
So, what does one do to make a 09 09 09 birthday special for my dear one . . . especially, when it is mine, too? Friends and colleauges share a plethera of fabulous ideas for a festive and memorable celebration. Hmmm…what ideas are doable and on a frugalist budget? The “Nine Days of Birthdays” — similiar to the “12 Days of Christmas” — is the result of one highly-productive evening gathering of astute minds.
On the first day of nine birthdays . . . one love poem
Day 2 — Two Godiva turtle chocolates
Day 3 – Three Coins in a Fountain: three gold coins to toss in one of the fountains at Rose Cottage, and coins tossed in Rome’s Trevi Fountain by a friend
Day 4 – A dazzling four-leaf clover from a lass who is a wee bit of Irish
Day 5 – Framed favorite photo from a dreamy trip to Cinque Terre, Italy with the purple and pink sunset over the Mediterranean Sea in the background
Day 6 – Six voluptuous peach roses each saying “I love you” in a different languages
Day 7 – Seven “Lucky Nines” lotto cards
Day 8 – Eight different birthday songs
Day 9 – Nine little gifts throughout the day at nine minutes past the hour
