Oh, so many wonderful memories of my birthday – and it’s tomorrow, thanks for asking 😉 There was that time I had to work a 12 hours shift. Or how about that time my mother called exactly one month late? Or when my dad called 3 days late? Well, okay, so that’s every year. My thirteenth birthday at my cousin’s wedding. With a horrifying number of polkas. Or what about that one where I was at a conference and spent my birthday alone on the other side of the country? I did splurge on a very nice meal and read a good book, so it wasn’t all bad, but it was a little weird.

Fine. The actual day of my birthday hasn’t always been fabulous. Fortunately, I’m not one of those people who gets really squirrelly about it, and I’ve certainly had some wonderful birthday celebrations in the vicinity of the day. Like last year, a girls’ trip to Boston with the two women I’ve been friends with since we were all ten – we all turned forty last year within less than a month of each other. Or a trip to the UK. Or this year, when hubby and I are going to San Diego for the weekend.

As a happy coincidence, I just signed up for Rafflecopter – for those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a way to have giveaways that don’t rely on my counting up comments and using random.org to choose a winner. However, I’ve never used it before and want to test it out, before my blog tour in a few months. I thought a birthday bash would be exactly the best way to do it!

You’ve got until the day my dad remembers to call me… well, that’s maybe too nebulous. Let’s say until Friday October 4, end of day, to share with me here one of your favourite birthday memories, and/or enter using one of the other methods via Rafflecopter, giving you another chance at a $15 Amazon or All Romance eBook gift certificate.
