It's My Party

I was enjoying my birthday all cozy and warm in my bed when my husband leaned over and said, "Happy Sixty First" birthday dear." 


I was so startled I nearly fell out of bed. I'd honest to goodness forgotten how old I am today. No probs, I still feel like I'm 29, again...so let's all just go with it!  Today, in my heart and in my head I still feel 29. The body is achy and breaky but the heart and soul are strong! I was five years shy of 29 when this young man was born. My first born...he arrived a week before my 24th birthday.You remember...he was my Mother's Day baby. 
We have a wedding to attend late this afternoon and early evening. Tomorrow we will combine celebrating my birthday and my oldest son's! I am looking forward to another great gathering of the the clan, at least those that could make it to town! We'll have an early luncheon celebration and then off to see Trey in his last soccer game of the season!


Have a great weekend everyone...
I'm off to the farmer's market for ferns....whooo hooo! Oh and I'll be practicing on my birthday gift from my husband. A brand new iphone 4 with my new BFF...Siri! I'm kinda slow but she's patient!
Hugs and

You're still a baby yourself, Sush. I'd give ANYTHING to be 61 again! :) Happy birthday, dear friend!

Happy Birthday, Sush! I was also 24 when I had my first baby. Seems like yesterday, yes? Well, we're beautiful still, my friend.
Your husband will love the phone. Around our house we call Siri the "Sister Wife."

Happy Birthday!! I got myself a new friend for my birthday in April named Siri! She can be a little slow too, so she has to be patient with the slow humans because we have to patient with her! :)
I hope you had a fabulous birthday celebration for you and your son! :)

A belated happy birthday Sush. It sounds like it was a good one. You share your day with my youngest daughter - she just celebrated #26 so she's almost as old as you!!!

Happy Belated Birthday!!! I thought I was already following your blog but I guess I wasn't. I'm proud to say I got it together and I am following now! I hope your 29th birthday was fantabulous! I've been 29 for almost ten years and I have no intention of getting any older... ;)

My dear Sush, and I didn't wish you happy birthday my friend ! Curses! I was wondering where you were and popped over to see. You haven't been showing up on my blog roll ,So I will try re-following you and see if that works. Come to think of it, I think I did say 'happy birthday' on Facebook. Phew! You certainly don't look like 61. As lOng as we stay young in our hearts and spirit! Hugs x
