Even though I tried to convince myself it wasn't happening, I celebrated a birthday this week. I reluctantly rolled over into a new decade. It's not so much that I mind "being" 50 but I don't like "saying" I'm 50. Lol. I realized that when I was in university, my Mom was the age I am now and I thought my Mom was so OLD. GROAN.......
So here are a few highlights from my big day. I arrived at work and the entrance to my office was filled with balloons
Later that day my Mom's best friend arrived at my door with this
I knew she didn't really buy me a case of vodka. Lol. Inside the box was a real treat.
There were 50 individually wrapped gifts! Each one numbered
What a neat idea! I had so much fun opening them all. Some practical kitchen gadgets etc, some funny inside jokes, some sweet reminders of my Mom, some beautiful keepsakes. I think it was one of the nicest gifts I have ever received.
And there was another very special surprise. My sweet friend Kim from Field of Dreams blog sent me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers.
A bouquet of pure sunshine all the way from California! Have I mentioned before what a lucky girl I am?
