Out with a Bang

Well, it's here.  Today is the day I turn 50 years old.  After all is said and done, it feels great.

My wonderful husband completely surprised me last night with a fabulous birthday party.  It was so much fun - a terrific dinner at my favorite restaurant with a great group of friends and family.  We ate, laughed, talked and danced the night away in very un 50-like style - proving that you are never too old for a good party!

It was truly a night to remember.  I am blessed to have such fabulous friends who came out to help me celebrate this milestone.  As an introvert, I'm the one who doesn't want the party and usually prefers the quiet dinner, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of last night - Thank you Bill for arranging such a lovely evening.

Thank you all too for following this blog over the last year. It has been an enlightening journey for me.  I've realized that I really am a writer, and will continue to write as I move onto the next phase of my life.  I love that I have this journal of my 50th year, and am looking forward what the next 50 years has in store for me.


  1. What a FANTASTIC party!!!
    We really had a wonderful time, thank you for getting some of us old folks out on the dance floor!
