More Than Halfway Through Life









I celebrated my 50th birthday this week. My hubby did it up big and made the day a wonderful one for me. I had to work but he took the day off and orchestrated some special moments for me. Here are some photos from the day showing the cake he baked, the special order M&Ms he got, the 50 roses he presented to me first thing in the morning along with a cup of my favorite coffee, the fifty wooden fish he had hammered into our front lawn to commemorate the day, and the Kuerig coffee maker he he gave me. It was a wonderful, wonderful day and the best present is yet to come. I won't be able to post a photo of my "big" present for about another month. Please stay tuned, though.

What a sweet man!

I'm aching to know what this "wait for a month" present is! You're not 8 months pregnant, are you? hee...hee! :)

(From the picture I saw of you looking fab at fifty, you'd be hiding it extremely well!)
