My 50th Birthday Party
As promised I’m back to share some photos of my 50th birthday party. My friend Vicki Riley took the photos for me and gave them to me in a beautiful album. About 40 of my friends showed up to celebrate with me and Lee Ann Womack‘s band played jazz for about 2 hours just for me. I guess it pays to sleep with the bass player! (my husband Randy)
My friend Cassie helped me frost some canning jars and I used those to hold gerber daisies (my favorite flowers) and the smaller ones I used for candles. I sprinkled Hershey’s Kisses (my favorite candy) around the jars. I printed about 200 Moo postcards of the photos from this blog and a few more that’s I’ve taken since and gave them away as party favors. I also framed some photos to give away as door prizes. My friend Lisa ordered my cake with one of my favorite photos of my family on it and a rastersized photo of me, which was made using Rasterbator, was put up on the window behind the band. When you haven’t had a birthday party in about 24 years and you’re turning a 1/2 century old, why not?
I had a wonderful time and I think that this stage of my life is going to be the best one!
