Happy Birthday .....

Yep, yep, yep .... it's that time in a person's life that those big milestone birthday's roll around!! Today is that day for my very special friend Tanya! She is celebrating her 50th year on the planet and I am blessed to be spending the day with her in celebration. She has chosen where she wants to party so tomorrow I will post a few pictures. As women we evolve so much with each passing decade ... We have parties with our friends that include cake and ice cream and pin the tail on the donkey. Then sleep overs with our girlfriends, we stay up all night and talk and giggle about boys. In our 20's we are nursing sick children and wiping spitup off our clothes for our special day, followed by sleepless birthday nights waiting for our driving teens to come home. As we roll into our 40's things begin to calm down and our birthdays take a back seat to the joy of watching the grandchildren open our gifts and dominate the day, but we love it!
Now, at 50 - it's our time to shine. We get to do what we want, when we want and where we want to do it. We get to stay clean and spital free, open our own gifts and enjoy a night of restful sleep after our "big" day. Oh my Tanya .... life truly begins at 50!! Enjoy the decade, it goes fast!! Happy Birthday my friend.
