Here's a little patriotic inspiration for you today....our newest OWH video:

a week in a B&B in Vermont in the fall with a man that adored me. Happy Birthday, America!

Reta said...

I'd love Hawaii,too, but anywhere warm with a beach would be fine. Maybe throw in a lazy river.

HalfDozen said...

If I could have a Birthday with no kids around I'd love to do Spain!
Be it that I share my Birthday with my youngest & only daughter, I may have to wait 18 or so more years.
Thanks

songbird cindi said...

Well, if I'm going to dream big - Italy with George Clooney!

Cassandra said...

Dreaming big for a birthday vacation... All around the world to my favorite dream spots with my whole family, my best friend and her family and my kindred spirit and her family! All expenses paid, a just a good long (possibly up to a year) exciting adventure!

CarolB said...

My dream birthday would be spent in Switzerland, somewhere in the Alps in a log lodge, with my hubby of 40 years. All expenses paid, of course.

Jeanne said...

My dream birthday would be taking a trip somewhere fun, since I never get to travel. Hopefully a trip to Europe will be in store for my big 3-0 next year!

Sandy said...

I would be in the tropics with my hubby, no kids for a week, cooking, no cleaning!!!

Erika said...

Great card! Fun question - I'd take my entire family - cousins and everything, to Europe. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to go check out all of Europe - but only with my family.

Dee in N.H. said...

I would love a trip to CHA in a warm place with a big fat wallet and my friends.

scrapper al said...

Dream big? Okay, how about a trip around the world, with stops in Italy, China, Japan, the Galapagos, Tahiti, Australia, and several more places I'm sure.

debb said...

Wonderful video! Wonderful freebie- thanks Brandi! Wonderful card samples Wonderful birthday vacation? I would be in Williamsburg Va with the hubs- soaking in the history followed by a bit of time at the beach (off season of course to avoid the crowds and heat!) Now you have me wishing!

jengd said...

The semi-realistic: A trip to CKC to take all the classes I want, hit all of the scraps, and be able to buy everything that appeals to me. Semi because I'm actually getting a watered down version of that this year (a few classes, no scraps, some spending $). Sky's the limit- cruise to Alaska, followed by a trip to Rome, Paris, London and a few other stops while we're at it.

loyaz1 said...

I would go on a world cruise with my very special husband who takes such good care of me.
Your video is really touching

ScrappinCntryGrl said...

Wow...what a question....I would love to go Europe for a month...take my time of going through the different countries...Italy, Germany, France and of course England.

Susan said...

Hawaii with my husband. Or a long trip through Europe.

Marianne said...

Ok this will seem silly especially since my birthday is in December but I would love to attend a Chicago Cubs game with my husband, sons and mom.

Ola said...

My perfect birthday would be a bbq at home with ALL of my family with me... swimming & just having a good time with each other!

Thanks so much for sharing!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Robin said...

what a cute card!
I had my dream birthday last year .. my SO bought me a cricut, we took a drive downriver to another little town and shopped, met up with a friend for lunch, then we stopped for dinner on the way home at another great restaurant overlooking the Mississippi River

Bev E said...

Cute card. Thanks for posting the video too. One of my favorite things to do is to go to a weekend crop with my friends and my darling daughter.

Lynn said...

Dream big? A brand new Harley Davidson built to fit me, and the time and money to cruise the WHOLE USA's best backroads taking pictures of the land and it's people. don't get me started! LOL!

Carolyn Sharkas said...

I would love to go all over this great land of ours and see all the beauty and splendor it has to offer.
But anywhere would be fine, as long as I have my family with me.

grammiej said...

A perfect birthday for me would be to gather my four children and their famlies in my arms, sit on a porch and share memories with each other.
I like simple things!

Shirley said...

I would love to go on a European ski trip with my DH skiing from village to village.

Christine said...

dream vacation.... right now would be a trip to NYC to see a Rangers, Islanders and Devils National Hockey League game for each team.

Jamie said...

I would love to just spend time with my family for birthdays. it'd be just perfect. A vacation would be nice, but not necessary.

thank you for the freebie

BJ said...

My dream B-day would be a family history road trip....I need to fill in some parts of the family tree....So I need to hit some East coast Libraries and Ireland.

grandmalee said...

The answer to this question is easy for me thanks to a post from Delores, Sandy's mom. I would spend a whole month in D.C. going to all of the museums and historic places with my family. I would take my time going through the exhibits and make sure that we were on all of the special tour lists! Although my grandkids may not like it at first, once they see how much of our countries history has been preserved, they may appreciate our freedoms so much more!!!

Susan said...

My DREAM Birthday would be a HUGE gathering of family and friends anywhere having good food, good fun and lots of laughter. The Gathering would include ALL of my family, both alive and passed on. It would include ALL friends past and present. We would have an entire conference room at a hotel for ourselves for the entire weekend, and of course no one would be cooking except for a few family members making their signature foods. Like My Mom's Potato salad. My Late Father's London Broil, My sister's Apple Pie, my sister's Chicken Paprikash, Hubby's Stuffed Cabbage, Lump Crab Meat Crab Cakes AND his BEST-IN-THE-WORLD cole slaw, my Brother's "whopper's Milkshakes"
ANYTHING made by my Late Aunt Helen.
and Wawa would be catering the coffee!
All the kids would be there, and there would be plenty of "kids tables" and I can almost hear my late Aunt Mildred saying "Go in the other room now, the big people are talking".
MY Late Uncle Stanley would make the hula girl tattoo dance for the youngest ones, and I would love listening to the giggling. My dad and all the other vets would be telling FUNNY stories from their times on the ships or in the fields (most were navy guys) I would finally get to meet my grandparents. In a way this is how I am hoping it will be when my times comes, and I go to heaven.

Happy Fourth!...I LOVE the card you made. I'll try to get to a fairy knoll card, but I am swamped and was lucky to get done what I got done at this moment.

Thanks for supporting our troops and doing all that you do.

Susan
