Happy Birthday To Me!


Today is my 50th birthday! My mind definitely doesn’t feel 50 but sometimes my body tells me I’m actually 50. My 40’s were some of the best years of my life so I know the 50’s will be even better thanks to my love and partner. Above is one of the earliest pictures I have of myself and my twin brother. I think I might be close to 1 in this picture. I was born in France but was only there for about 9 months. This picture must have been one of the first taken when we got back to the US. I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life. I have retirement to look forward to and many, many years with Warren.

Today will be a normal day…work, errands, etc. Tomorrow I’m taking the day off to get a physical in the morning and then to enjoy time with friends in the evening hours. Should be a great birthday! Happy Birthday to me!

50th Birthday

Today is Warren’s 50th birthday! Happy Birthday! Last night we went to a local restaurant with some close friends and had a wonderful dinner with some wonderful wines. After dinner we went back to Warren’s house to enjoy some cake and ice cream. Warren opened his gifts as well. We had a great time catching up with our friends and celebrating Warren’s 50th birthday. I’m now younger than he is…until the end of May. Here are some pictures from the evening.

Birthday Cake

I was off again today for the third day in a row so I took advantage of the time and decided to make a special someone his birthday cake. This weekend he will turn 50. We’re having a special dinner on Saturday evening with friends and then going back to his place for cake and ice cream. I think the cake turned out pretty well. I know it will be yummy!

Happy Birthday To Me!

I had a pretty good birthday today. I had lots and lots of people wishing me happy birthday at work, on Twitter and Facebook too. It was very HOT today. Here’s a picture of the thermometer in my car showing how hot it was. Also, here’s my new official picture. It was time to update since the last one was taken three years ago. I am now 48. Do I look 48 in the picture?

Happy New Year

Yesterday I went to my sister’s house in Richmond to celebrate my father’s 80th birthday. My entire family was there. There are 24 of us when we are all together. Here’s a picture of my twin brother and myself with my father. It was great catching up with all my siblings.

Here’s the entire family. I’m not sure when this will ever happen again. Every sibling, spouses and children are there. We aren’t missing anyone.

Two Cakes

Yesterday on my birthday, the boyfriend got me a cake. And of course we put those very old numbers on it. He sang happy birthday to me and I made a wish and blew out the candles. My wish hasn’t come true yet but they’ll be drawing the lottery numbers on Tuesday and Wednesday night. hahaha Here’s the cake the boyfriend got me. I can’t wait for my other birthday in October! hehehe

Today we met some fellow wine bloggers at a winery and they brought me a cake for my birthday as well! Wasn’t that nice of them?

Boyfriend’s Birthday

The boyfriend’s birthday is coming up this week…on Tuesday. Since we don’t get together during the week, we celebrated his birthday today. We went to our favorite winery and had a bottle of the most expensive wine they make. We enjoyed it with our lunch.

When we got home from the winery we had cake and the boyfriend opened his gift. I made the cake of course. As you can see the boyfriend really enjoyed blowing out the candles.

I gave the boyfriend a set of eight champagne glasses. When we had our dinner party on New Year’s eve, we didn’t have enough matching champagne glasses. Now he has enough for eight guests. I think he liked the gift.

Happy Birthday, honey! I love you!
