Happy B-day Vanessa!! I love your attitude and hey - age is a state of mind right? (I guess that makes all children's book illustrators truly kids at heart) Love your work as always and this illo is positively yummy! :>

Here it is your birthday, and you're giving me presents. We're hanging the snail in the girls' room and they are ecstatic about it.

Have a wonderful, happy day and a fantastic weekend. You are such a point of light and you deserve the best.

Hugs,
Eric

I don't think we ever really feel our age...do we? I know when I am 90 I still hope to feel like a teenager. Happy Birthday. Congrats on all you have accomplished. You are an inspiration.
