Happy Birthday!
I'm glad you were born and decided to write a blog because the world is a better place for both of those things!



Happy Birthday! Being in our 50's is great, and even greater as the kids graduate from college and fully "launch" into their own lives! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy belated Birthday Laurie! Hope your day was filled with all the people and things you love and lots of cake! I think the fifties are great years, freedom to shed all the "shoulds" and say no, etc. whisper whisper I'm going to be sixty this month - thirty, forty, fifty didn't bother me one bit - fifty nine didn't bother me but the upcoming six-uh-oh, I must confess is getting to me. I think it's all a hoax - I'm still 15 hahaha.
Happy happy 50th Birthday year, wishing you lots of fun and adventures!


Happy birthday, my friend! You are a great blessing in my life, and I am celebrating with you! xo Barbara

I don't know how I missed this. Happy birthday to you my friend! I loved turning 50. Somehow I saw it as a "coming of age" and it made a huge change in my outlook, my priorities and my expectations of myself. Enjoy!!!
