Today is Gigi’s Birthday, yay!

Happiest of happies to you, Gigi!  ❤

For those of you who are familiar with Gigi of Rethinking Life it will come as no surprise that she is an amazing, talented woman.  If you do not know  her you should go to her blog…REALLY, I mean it!  Here is a link Rethinking Life

Gigi is one of those rare creatures who exude talent through their pores and can do anything…painting, poetry, collages, essays, short stories, photography and on and on!!

In honor of her birthday I would like to share with you some of the GIFTS she shares with all of us.

  1. It was so hard to pick just the pieces I showcased…you produce so much wonderfulness! ❤ 😀

    • You are so sweet. Thank you for that. It was so perfect and so much more than I could possibly imagine anyone ever doing for me. I don’t know how to thank you.

    I love the collage, you are too much Gigi girl.

  3. Happy Birthday, Gigi!!!!!

    • Thank you so much:) Birthdays are fun:) ❤

      • Yes they are! A whole day to indulge in playful pursuits. I always taught my girls to share, Birthday Week. The idea came to me when my little one celebrated a birthday, and I’ve continued the tradition. Each day the girls would find a surprise, maybe I had made up their bed, cleaned up their bathroom, emptied the dishwasher. It was always my way of giving them a continued moment of joy. Of course, once the week was over, so we’re my surprises. 🙂

      • What a fabulous tradition! I love it and it’s so much fun…I love surprises and to think they never knew what you were going to do. 🙂 Perfect.

  4. Happy birthday, Gigi!

  5. So beautiful Gigi ! 🙂

  6. Happy Birthday, I love that watercolor!
