Thank you all for your awesome birthday wishes!

Many a newspaper story from days gone by was concluded with the words, “and a good time was had by all”. I certainly think this sentiment applies to the fantastic 25th birthday that I had on Friday! My special day was made all the more wonderful thanks to the slew of lovely birthday wishes that so many of my dear blogging friends left for me.

Over at “Time Machine to the Twenties”, sweet-as-honey fellow vintage blogger Amanda recently bestowed a charming award upon Chronically Vintage called the Water Cooler Wonders award. As its name implies, sites that are bestowed this award are the type that post content you would want to share and chat about around the water cooler. I’m a huge fan of Amanda’s blog and wanted to continue on her award by passing it along to each of my friends who left comments for me on my birthday themed post.

Thank you so much to the following people, you each get the Water Cooler Wonders award!

{Oodles of thanks, Amanda! For those who'd like to continue passing along this cool award, please save the graphic on your desktop or in your favourite online album, and keep the water cooler love going :)}

    @ Landgirl, thank you, sweet gal! You've very welcome for the gifty :)

    @ The Glamorous Housewife, you're are too sweet, thank you! 25 feels rather ancient to me, but then again, I've always been something of an "old soul" so that could be clouding my judgment when it comes to age. Certainly I don't look at other 25 year olds as being "old", so I'm not too sure why it seems aged on me (???).

    @ Sher, thank you so much! I wish we lived closer by one another too, I'm sure we'd have an amazing time together!

    @ thatgirlblogs, thank you, hon!

    @ Cait, thank you very much, darling girl! They most certainly should always be oodles of fun! When is your birthday, honey? I do not want to miss out on wishing you a joyful day!
