This year, 2019, marks 59 years of my existence. I was born in December, so for most of 2019, I am 59. Being that I was born in 1959 makes this my golden year, I’m told. I have to admit that it has been a golden year, albeit a little tarnished with stress and surgery, but I am blessed with excellent health, a great part-time “retirement” job, and a wonderful husband and family.
By the time you read this post, I will be returning home from spending a long weekend in San Diego celebrating with family and friends the beginning of our 60th decade of life.
Hubby’s big 6-0 was last Monday and mine is looming in early December.
Coincidentally, October marks eight years of blogging! Although I wrote my first post on October 31, I didn’t get serious with consistently blogging until Fall 2014 as I planned for retirement from my full-time day job.
To help celebrate life’s milestones, the Sunday Stills theme this week is birthdays.
I know how creative you all can be, so help me celebrate by posting a milestone in your life, whether a special birthday, anniversary, or something special that marks a significant life event.
To get you started, here are a few photos from past celebrations.
I love this image of Hans and his mother, Hella, who just celebrated her 88th birthday earlier this month!
We love a celebration!
An older pic of me and my sis-in-law celebrating our December birthdays. Must-have chocolate cake is always on this menu!
My 60th birthday is still a few weeks away and I will be teaching in the classroom that night (December 4), but virtual cards and cake are always appreciated.
I can’t wait to see what creative interpretations you have of birthdays, anniversaries or other celebrations you have to share with us this week!
