Facing Fifty


"50" used to sound so OLD...but now, I'm not so sure!


My family is so good to me!


I got lots of hugs....





and good kisses too!

it was a WONDERFULLY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

ps...you know your husband loves you when he walks in to show you this cutie that he saved from the dreaded grill....
I'm one lucky girl!

Awwwww, I just knew your family would make your birthday special. And 50's not so old...I'm told 60 is the new 40, so I'm going with that. That must make 50 the new 30! See, you're really only 30!
Hugs,
Nadine

P.S. my verification word is "sulard" is that to call hefty hogs to dinner?

Hi Val,

So your birthday is on July 19? We are nearly birthday twins then. :)

Happy Birthday to you, Val -- I wish you just the best of everything. :) Thanks for sharing all those wonderful photos and stories and the good stuff -- your blog is as lovely as you are! :)

A huge hug
from your Bavarian friend
Birgit

Looks like you had a wonderful day! How cute that your hubby brought you that little frog. My hubby is always bringing things inside to show me.....like moths and lizards. He knows better than to bring in any more spiders (even if they are in a jar) because I will most certainly kill him....and the spider too! You have a beautiful family!

Oh wow, You SERIOUSLY do NOT look 50!!!! I thought you were mid 30's!!!
Wow you're doing good!! What's your secret?! You gotta tell me!! Happy Birthday Val, my dear friend! I hope you got smooches from the cats as well! What a cute little frog!

Playing catch up today :) Looks like you had a wonderful birthday. 50 looks great on you :) Those little frogs seem to be everywhere. As long as they don't jump out at me I'm OK with them.

Happy birthday! I'm glad you had a special day with your family! They know you're wonderful and wanted you to know it!
By the way I think that you're only as old as you feel and I think you'll always be young at heart!

Best Wishes for many more. You look fabulous, so 50 must be the new 30....Happy 30th:)
