Birthdays are difficult for some people. ME? My 30th birthday was awful. I found my first 2 gray hairs a week before. (I KNOW! Stupid! Why was I looking???) Although we did celebrate by going to a Kinks concert so it wasn’t that bad!
My 40th was GREAT! I took some close friends to Nashville on a Limo bus and we had an awesome time! But my 45th? Well….the world was coming to an end and I was having a nervous breakdown. But that was the year my daughter went away to school, I sold the businesses I had poured my heart and soul into and I didn’t like my husband AT ALL!! Well, he didn’t like me either so it was a mutual agreement. We are still together though and doing great now but it has been a long struggle. Anyone who knows me very well knows the story…. I also decided I needed to get a lap dog (in addition to the two English Springers we already had)! HA! I still tell people I don’t know what I was smoking! LOL! Pookie is a Yorkie and we can’t imagine our life without him! 🙂
Last year my 50th rolled around and everyone kept asking me what I was going to do. Hubby took the entire week off and we went on a trip so we could spend some time together and I could be with my best friend for a few days. It was perfect for me. I thought about getting a tattoo but I couldn’t figure out what to get, where to put it and in the end I completely chickened out because I am a complete woos when it comes to pain! I have seen some beautiful ink on people but I just don’t understand how they can sit still for it!
This year I decided I wanted a party. It was awesome fun and we had it at a local winery. As it turns out, I have several friends who are all Leos and share the same birthday or in close proximity so we all decided to have an impromptu get together (well sort of) we HAD planned it for several months. There was good wine, good food and good friends! I can’t think of a better way to spend the 22nd anniversary of my 29th birthday!! Although, there were a few missing who do not live close by and I miss them TERRIBLY!! You know who you are! I misses you a whole lot!! Hence the tears…. 😦
I love my friends and family and I feel so very, very, very blessed to have you in my life! Thank you for making my birthday weekend special! 🙂
