I'm a Lucky Lady!





And I love my blog friends!

When I wrote that I hoped for one new friend -- to round the list of citizens of Buttercupland to 200 -- I never dreamed that I would be blessed with three new friends. LeAnnMichelle, and Lemon Lane Cottage  have become part of the Buttercupland family and I am looking forward to getting to know them. I've visited LeAnn a few times, but it's my first visit from Michelle and Lemon Lane and I look forward to lots of visits with all three of them.    

The weekend has whirled by. I spent most of the day in New Jersey at the Bat Mitzvah celebration of my dear friends' daughter, Rachel. Rachel is the sweet gymnast I wrote about last summer and she officially became an adult member of the Jewish community yesterday at services.


I had the same style cake in 1963. This was a yummy chocolate and mine was yellow sponge cake with white icing and marzipan flowers. I was in Rachel's parents wedding and they are part of our Bible Study group, so this was a very special celebration.

I hope there was sweetness everywhere in Buttercupland this weekend and sending wishes for a great week!

New blog friends are wonderful. I don't have half as many as you do but I treasure the ones i've made over the years. Glad you had a nice weekend. Hope your Monday is a great one!

No, I am the lucky one! Not sure what number follower I was, but it was a long time ago. You found me first and I am so glad you did! I always smile when I see that I'm going to read about ButtercupLand!!
