The big five 0

So you were probably wondering what occasion it was that my friends and I were celebrating last weekend. So I thought I should let my readers in on this milestone event, that takes place on the anniversary day of the bombing of Pearl Harbour, so I will let you figure out what date that is. It's almost here, just one more day, and there is nothing I can do to stop it! I am turning 50...there I said it! I cetainly don't feel 50, more like... 35. I am very happy with myself and my life! I am in good company as Madonna, Sharon Stone, Annette Benning, Michele Pfieffer, Michael Jackson, Prince, and Ellen Degeneres also turned 50 in 2008. Apparently, Lego, and the Gibson guitar also are 50 years old as well this year. Cool!!

Here is an interesting quote by Charles Dickens, that I think explains how many of us feel as we get older, and yet in many ways, still feel our youth, as I hope to continue to feel in the coming years:

Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigour. With such people the grey head is but the impression of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well-spent life. ~Charles Dickens

Ok, so I don't have a grey head...I was at the salon last week getting my color refreshed, and I try not to look too hard for the wrinkles of time! But you get the idea. So having my friends celebrate with me last weekend, really took the edge off of this big huge birthday, and now I don't feel quite so bad entering my fifties...eeek, I said it again! Pin It

Happy Birthday!! You're not 50, you're 35 with 15 years experience! My favorite year was 36, so that's my age from now on! :)
