Happy 54th Birthday to me...and getting old can just suck it!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

I turned 54 today. I had a great weekend...time with my husband, the beach (my favorite place), a sweet visit from my granddaughter...tons of special greetings on my sparkpage and on facebook, emails and text messages from special friends and family, phone calls from my kids...very nice.

Here's a little photoshoot to commemorate my 54th trip around the sun...and here's to many more!



Headed for the beach!

Sexy...and channeling THECITYMOUSE

Thanks Mouse for the inspiration...

Good idea JIBBIE49! I lost 60 pounds in 2008 and I've maintained that loss for almost 4 years. This is from our 2005 Hawaii trip.

And this is from our 2007 Vegas trip.

    It simply is TOTALLY WORTH IT!
I want to share something when people TRY TO impose their negativity about getting older.
I always say...OLDER suits me wellI...I am like fine wine...ONLY getting better WITH AGE.
It can come off conceited but its not meant to be...relative to is WORTH MORE when aged...its true value is IN TIME it has been TASTES BETTER fermented LONGER...etc.
Cheers to you on your special day. I pray you many more...and that your health and blessings from above continue to be abundant.
Keep sparking brightly.

    You look fantastic in all your "now" pictures. Seems like JIBBIE49 had a good idea to go back and post the "befores" -- the change is quite dramatic and sometimes that might be easy to forget.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your birthday and got the added bonus of having it fall over the long holiday weekend!

    You look wonderful, but then you should have added one of your "before" pictures so those looking could really get a grasp on just how much work you have done to be where you are now. emoticon
