Happy 200th birthday

Today we celebrate Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday. I didn't have time to bake a cake, but stuffed strawberries are always good in a pinch. Abe, you are in my everyday thoughts, and our company enourages all new managers to read "Lincoln on Leadership".

For me, Abe is a symbol of achievable change. According to the White House website, he educated himself while laboring hard on a farm, yet later rose to the office of Presdident.

Happy Birthday Abe!


  1. What a coincidence, I'm doing a post on his birthday today too! Thanks to you, I now know it was his 200th so I can add that.

    I'd take your strawberries anyday over cake :-)

  2. Debbie, so thoughtful of you to remember Abe! And with your wonderful stuffed strawberries! So good.

  3. Happy 200th Abe... how would you like to blow out those candles !!

    Love the strawberries - must check to see if the grocery is still getting the good ones...

  4. Poor Abe, so much to deal with, not to mention his wife!
    Strawberries look good too!

  5. Debbie, I remembered it was Abe's birthday but had forgotten it's the 200th.

    I guess that's why they brought out those four new pennies today.

    I've never made your strawberries, but everyone that has raves about them. I must do that soon.

  6. Debbie, I really have to make your strawberries. I'm not sure I can wait until summer either.

  7. Aren't you just the sweetest celebrating Abe's big birthday. I am sure he would have loved the strawberries. I have a bunch to eat in the fridge. Gotta do at least a few like you.


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
