Happy Birthday To Me!

Yep, it's finally here! The half-century mark. I thought I'd be devastated, but you know what? Since I'm one of the luckiest women alive, it would be downright churlish of me not to celebrate my life.
So Happy Birthday to me!!!


  1. Happy birthday! I turned 50 a few months ago, and discovered there IS life after 50 -- and it's not much different from life art 49!

  2. Happy Birthday, Rose! You look so happy in that photo...have a great day!

  3. HaPpY bIrThDaY!!!!! Enjoy! I think the Fifties are fabulous. Wish I'd had this perspective in my twenties. So many things clearly become "the small stuff" and you can just let go of them. Hope your day is everything you wish for:>)

  4. Happy Birthday! Fifties aren't half as bad as I thought they'd be and I think you'll enjoy them, too. I think the anticipation is worse than the actual passing of the day.
