It isn't a blog birthday (that will come in April - its ninth birthday) but today, on Music Moves Me, we celebrate "birthdays or songs about kids growing up and being beautiful". Why? Because the daughter of one of the participants of this blog hop is turning 25. And, hey, if you also can't celebrate a 3000th blog post, what can you celebrate!
Before we get to the music, a little about Music Moves Me (aka "4M").
The Head 4M'er is XmasDolly. Her co-4Mers are: Callie of JAmerican Spice, and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥ And last but certainly not least, Cathy from Curious as a Cathy.
Only a couple of songs today because today is going to be a busy day for me, but I wanted to feature a song that, when I was turning 16, was played at just about every Sweet 16 party.
Birthday, by the Beatles.
And, for the modern young ladies, a video I love by a talented singer - Katy Perry, Birthday. I hope you will get the humor, too (and it's worth, I think, the entire eight minutes of watching. It starts a little weird, but stay with it.)
No birthdays today, but a wonderful person I know turned 86 yesterday and, earlier last week, my husband's aunt turned 106. Young ladies, you have so much to look forward to.
Wishing you many wonderful years ahead.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, ERICA!
