What a wonderful day I’ve had. After a few days of trepidation leading up to my birthday, I decided it was time to change my thinking. Turning 50 happens only once in our lives and I figured I should embrace it as a time of adventure and opportunity. Several of my friends, here and in my blogging world, have really helped make me along that path.
Throughout today, I’ve had visits, phone calls, cards and e-mails from friends and family. My sister sent me a gorgeous orchid and I received a bouquet of beautiful flowers from a not-so-secret admirer. (Pictures to follow tomorrow!) My parents gave me an easel. I have many things to be thankful for in life and best, I feel surrounded by love and support.
Benoît, my son and I went over to my parents for supper. My mum made Beef Wellington and a delicious carrot cake. This is a picture above of me and my carrot cake. My ‘nifty fifty’ candle would have burned for hours!
My son was having fun fooling around with my parent’s digital camera … I just wanted to eat my cake. If you want to hear my exchange with both my mum and Benoît, you can watch the video below. (I had no idea that my son was videotaping me.) Carrot cake is really my favourite cake!!
