Fifty

WOW, I don't know where to start. My husband, kids and friends (the best people in my life) made sure I had a wonderful 50th birthday celebration. My birthday is today but the celebrations started yesterday. Actually, Friday when Ginette and André arrived from New Brunswick. I had an all day meeting yesterday. Got home at 4 p.m. and the laughing, eating, hydrating started. We had a rappie pie supper and for dessert - yup, that's right BIRTHDAY CAKE. Ginette brought me this amazing and delicious cake from Croissant Soleil. The candles said ''OH NO THE BIG 50''.

Than it was time to head out and meet my wonderful friends at the home of one of them before heading out to the dance. (I have so many nice pictures of this part of the celebration but some people in the pictures I did'nt ask permission to post their pictures; and I won't).

Below - two pictures of Clarisse and I.


Laughing is good therapy.

This morning I was presented with fabulous gifts. This one is from Dave. Christmas carolers handmade by a local artist. I already have a few pieces from this artist and Dave knew I had my eyes on these carolers since I had seen them at an exhibit this summer.

Afterwards the six of us headed out for brunch.

Thank you a million times to everyone for the wonderful birthday celebrations. If I had known that turning 50 was so much fun I would have speeded up the processes...

In my 50 years - the two most cherished gifts I've received are Ginette and Luc. They put pure joy and love in my heart.
