Sixty! Whew...I made it.

Yesterday was my 60th birthday.  Lots of things I had planned on doing over the years didn't materialize such as losing 30 pounds (!) or waking up on Maui.  But still it was a wonderful day with my family and friends.  It started out a day early as my friend Cynthia sent me a package & I just could not wait.  She sent me the best Birthday card.

And she just SPOILED me rotten.  I'm so blessed to have such a caring and loving friend who made sure my Birthdays are always special.  

Then Sammy let me sleep in.  YEAH!  He had some loving to give me on my birthday after he'd had his cookie and I had my first cup of coffee.
I had been working on a special necklace to wear on my birthday.  It is called Canyonland Sunset.  Years ago we went camping out at the Canyonlands National Park in Utah.  Each evening we sat on a cliff watching the Sun turn the Canyonlands into the most amazing colors that still are a part of me to this days.  Oranges, greens, and browns flow out through my work and make me thrilled.

For dinner, Chris and I went to Lola & Guiseppe's Italian Trattora in Gahanna Ohio.  It was delicious.  I'd been there in November with the Ohio Beaders and always wanted to go back.  I was NOT disappointed at all.  Everything was fresh, delicious, and Lola was there making sure everyone was served and happy.  It felt like being in your Italian Aunt's kitchen.

Then I ended my birthday with a marathon viewing of Star Trek the Next Generation and a Sammy Doodle cuddling up next to me in bed.  I can't believe how many birthday wishes I got on Facebook.  Definitely a warm and fuzzy day.

You certainly don't look or act your age, thank goodness. They say 60 is the new 50. Looking good and glad you had a great day.
