Today Is The Day...

This is what fiFtY sEvEn years looks like on me.
Today is my Birthday!
I'm sure you're wondering how I'm going to spend today.

This morning, I'll be with my girlfriends at Sandy's Quilt Shop for our Saturday Coffee Group. I won't say for sure, but there may be cupcakes!

Then, this afternoon Handsome and I are riding out on our Harleys to join members of the Port Charlotte Chapter of the Harley Owners Group to travel south to Ft. Myers.

Our destination is the Parrot Key Caribbean Grill on Ft. Myers Beach. We'll be dining on local cuisine, and watch the annual Christmas Boat Parade after dark.

There will be no alcohol consumed because we're riding, however, I'm making no promises that there won't be a Malibu and pineapple juice cocktail waiting for me upon our safe return home.

How does that sound for a day of celebration for a wife, stepmom and grandma who is and will always be young at heart?

I'm so grateful for my husband - who is my one true love, my family - who gives me purpose, my health, my friends, and above all, God - who continues to bless my life each and every day. I really have a wonderful life!

I'm so glad that you all care for me. You help bring the joy into my life by being a part of it.

I'm off to play! (I am taking my camera. Photos next week!)

Happy Happy Birthday Donna, Your day sounds like lots of fun. We are in the 40's and raining. Have fun on your Harley, that is what my daughter likes. She has a black one that they take to shows and won with. There little boy thinks he needs his to take too. Enjoy many more birthday's to come Hugs from your Missouri Friend.

Happy Birthday Donna!!!
You age beautifully, I hope I look as good as you when I hit 57.
I love how you stretch your birthday out, I would love to do that. But, since I only get gifts on my birthday and don't have a ton of friends to celebrate, it's usually just a one day affair.
I hope you have fun on your ride, I know how much fun it is to get together with bikers and ride off into the sunset.
