Today I've Hit A Milestone~!!!

What milestone you ask? A big one, at least to me ... lol. Milestone birthdays are relative. To a 20 year old, 25 is a milestone. To a 90 year old, 100 is a milestone. It's all relative. Mine hit today ... the BIG 50~! Wow! I can't believe it!

I am so fortunate to have such great family and friends. My daughter planned a surprise party for me on Saturday and I really, truly was surprised. We had made plans that my husband and I would go to her city and stay there the evening on Saturday and we would go out to dinner. Nothing seemed 'suspicious' to me at all! When we showed up at the restaurant not only was my whole family there but she had invited old friends of mine from 30 something years ago~!!! I was stunned. It was fabulous to see these people. Some of us have kept in contact via facebook for the past couple years but it has been years and years since I've seen them. Actually one guy and his wife I haven't seen for almost 30 years~!! We all had a great time and I think we were all in a huge time warp~!! lol

Here's a few photo's of my 50th~!!!

Ok, that 'Over The Hill' sign above - I didn't have the nerve to point it at me. Over the Hill is still to the right ... lol.

The layout above is myself and my wonderful daughter who planned and put this whole thing together~!

Great time and definately some great memories~! Actually I had been thinking about this birthday for awhile now because for some reason those 'milestone' birthdays seem much bigger then the one the year before or the one the year after ... lol. And I had made these kits ... for milestone birthdays. Worked out great for me and what a perfect time to put them into LLL Creations Dollar Mart~!

All of the elements used in the above layouts are included in the kits ... and more~!

Happy Birthday!

My next "milestone" is 75 in a couple of years. For some reason I consider it more of a milestone than 70 was. Imagine 3/4 of a century!
