I'm so happy that Ruth Ayres started a Celebrate Link-Up on her blog!!! I will be joining the celebration every Saturday!!
1. We continued to celebrate Mom's 70th birthday. Her actual day was on Thursday, so her friends of 45 years, who dub themselves The Cuties, planned a lunch at Malone's in Lexington, which is a central place where we can all meet. I rode down with two of her friends, one friend picked up my aunt in Knoxville, and then picked up my mom and another friend in Somerset. We all met up at Barnes & Noble first, where we had coffee, started a marathon chat session, and I bought books. Then we went to Malone's where our server kept us laughing, and we enjoyed delicious salads and an amazing birthday dessert. I have my own wonderful group of friends that I've known since high school and college, and I saw ourselves in the smiling faces of my mom's friends. Long-lasting friendships are something wonderful to celebrate!

2. The Warren County Fair is always something to celebrate. I love seeing all the kids and their projects. They work hard all year to bring their animals, sewing, art, science projects, talents, recipes, gardening, etc. for people to judge and enjoy. I hope 4-H continues forever! By now you know I love the poultry barn. I also love to see all the other livestock and the horses.
Some of my favorite chickens found in the poultry barn.
I found this little gem of a saying in the horse barn!
3. I'm sure you've already seen this, but Christopher Lehman came out with some pretty exciting news about his newest project. This is something to celebrate!
Off to read all of your celebrations!
