Thanks to my coworkers, friends and girls for the kind wishes, gifts and treats on my 51st birthday, June 8. My mom’s birthday was June 5, my dad’s June 12, so I’m sandwiched in a week of fond, sweet memories. I spent the evening this year at the Distinguished Young Women of the Camas Prairie program. A worthwhile event!
