60 is the new 40, right?

Today is my birthday, and not just any birthday, but my 60th birthday! I can't believe I just said that! 60 sounds so old. But I am rich with family and love and friends and a wonderful life.
Last Saturday we had a family birthday dinner with all of the grandkids, 2 sons and both daughters-in-law here. The girls made a really nice dinner and baked me a cake. I love this photo of the kids singing to me. There are a few missing from this photo.
Each of the grandkids made me a stone with their handprint, so I can remember how small they were in the year 2012. Sammy was so funny. He said, as he put his palm into his handprint, "Look Bubbi, my hand fits perfectly in here!" How cute is that?


This Saturday Mr. Romance is throwing me a big, fancy party for all our close friends and family. I can't wait, it is going to be so much fun!
Thanks for stopping by,

Happy birthday, Di. 60 is just a number. Much more important is the love and laughter you have filled those years with.

Happy Birthday!
I see that, after your trip to Europe and the amazing discoveries about your origins and your grandmother's story, it's also a very special birthday.
Happy to see you're surrounded by so much love.

Happy Birthdy Diane and remember, you're only as old as you feel and I don't think you feel old at all

Betty said...

Happy, happy Birthday (a day late)!!
Truly, you don't look 60 and you don't seem to act "old". But I do remember when I turned 60 how much I disliked the cards arriving shouting "Happy 60th" and vowed to never send another "year" card to anyone. Will tell you that turning 62 recently was much better! Hope all your wishes come true!
