However old you are is the new 30. Happy birthday.

Like a fine wine, we get better with age. Or maybe we just feel better about our age with a little bit of wine.

Happy birthday to someone who is smart, talented, pretty, creative, and fabulous. I love that we’re so much alike.

It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer. Congrats on your success.

At least you’re not as old as you will be next year. Happy birthday.

Time to tell you the truth, mom, you don’t bake the best cookies in the world. But you do give the best hugs, kisses, back scratches, care when I’m sick, support when I’m down and home to come back to. Your Thanksgiving turkey isn’t too bad either. Happy birthday.

Just like you’re not supposed to have a favorite child, I’m not supposed to have a favorite parent. But between you and me, let’s just say dad didn’t get as great of a gift as you’re getting this year. Happy birthday, Mom. From your unofficial favorite child.

You may be getting older Mom, but think on the bright side, you’ll at least always be younger than Dad. Happy birthday.

Just imagine the things you’d want to hear on your birthday and then pretend I said them. Love you, babe!

Your birthday outshines all the other 364 days of the year. Happy birthday!

If things really do get better with age, then you’re nearing perfection. I bet it feels as good as it looks. Happy birthday!

For your birthday, how about a fruit salad instead of cake? A fruit salad with mostly grapes – no, all grapes. Fermented grapes. Wine it is.

I can barely keep up with everyone’s birthdays these days, but you better believe I’d never forget yours. Happy birthday to the best sister there is.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the best person in the world was born. Happy birthday, bud!

Best friend, we’ve been through it all. We’ve celebrated birthdays together from our diaper days as kids, and I look forward to our diaper days as adults. Let’s live it up while we’re young.

Your birthday is a painful reminder of how old I’m getting. At least we’re in it together.

Happy birthday to someone who is smart, talented, pretty, creative, and fabulous. I love that we’re so much alike.

It is scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer. Congrats on your success.

Here’s to hoping all your candles this year don’t set off the fire alarm. Your birthday is gonna be lit.

Another birthday, another year older. Don’t you think it’s about time we started to act our age? Well, I know exactly what you’ll say. Next year. Happy birthday.

You’re not old. You’re just old enough to know better but not old enough to care. Happy birthday.

Another year to prove that older doesn’t really mean wiser. Happy birthday.

When I say, “have a happy birthday,” you better freaking do it!
