I Survived It

The Big
5 0 
came and went...

I actually survived 
without any major melt downs,

just a little heavy 
sweat from working in the garden.

NO spa treatments needed...
the collagen boost
got put off till next year...
and who's gonna notice a butt lift 
when you sit around 
blogging all day!

I DID get rid of
some gray hair and got 
a new "do",
but that was overdue
by about 5 years...

all in all this "big"
birthday breezed by
and my guy
managed to "make" my day
with all of my favorite things...

~peace and quiet~
 ~flowers that will last all summer~
~a private Crab Leg Dinner~
~a bottle of wine~
~a Carrot Cake~
~and a sunset bonfire~
 (I'm glad I decided to keep him)


Life is Good,
here's to a few more good years!
Thanks,
Lisa

Ah Lisa ...a girl never tells her age unless she looks good as you do.

Well Happy Birthday. I passed 50 up it seems like in a flash, but it actually has been several years hence. Oprah had a panel on those rich and famous who had turned 50 and they all swore that 50 was liberating. Hate to tell them, I was liberated long before I turned 50, but there is a quiet settling into life, a new free freedom to just whatever you want. Enjoy the year and each one that comes after.

Happy Birthday...! I don't mind telling my age either, I'm thankful for every day the Lord gives me...

Sounds like a great way to turn
5-0! But I must say the photo is
cute but that can't be you unless the photo has been touched up
cause I am a year older that you
and none of my younger pics look like this.

PS: AARP will be calling soon!

Happy Birthday! I'm getting closer to the bit 60 (two years away now) but each year is precious. I'm so happy you had a wonderful day. Everything sounded really great.
