I gather that the birthday was celebrated with friends, flowers and family. The day she'd planned sounded wonderful.
For her birthday this year, Babz had asked for written tributes from her friends. I am still a little muddle-headed post chemo but here is mine:
Larger than life
A woman whose love leaps off the page.
Honest. Joyful. Brilliant.
Head up through the toughest times
Facing the worst head on.
Strong. Angry. Determined.
Embracing the best life has to offer
Knowing how love and laughter heal.
Playful. Laughing. Ready.
This year will be a great one Babz, I know it. I can't wait to share a panel with you at BlogHer and that long anticipated glass of wine.
