50 ways to celebrate

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?  


  1. Another mile wishes for the next and the next!

  2. WOW is all I can say. How lucky you are to have such special friends. Happy Birthday!!!!
