50 is Nifty

 
One week from today is my birthday.
It's a significant one.
And I'm celebrating it!
I've invited about 20 friends, past and present, to lunch with me at
The Byelorussian Baker at Asbury House,
in Higginsville, MO.
(Alas, she does not have a web site).
The RSVPs are slowly trickling in and I'm excited that
some of my oldest and dearest friends (whom I've known for 25 years or more!) are coming! 
As I was making my guest list I noticed a trend--
that the list read like a who's who of Strong Women in My Life. 
 I am getting more excited for them to meet each other
than I am for them to come and celebrate me. ha!
 
And you, dear readers, are invited too. 
To my virtual party on my blog.
I wish you all could meet each other too.
Some of you drink tea, some prefer coffee,
some of you love to "junk" or just love junk in general. ha!
All of you are creative and kind and generous.
And that is why I consider you my friends.
And celebrate you!
I am not measuring this milestone by the distance I've traveled,
but  by the friends I've met along the way.
 
Can I make a Birthday Girl request? 
My camera died today and I was hoping to post daily pictures
of things that had the number "50" on them.
Can you send me some?
sylnat(at)ctcis.net
I will post your photo(s) and link to your blog.
Thanks SO much!
The more photos I get, the longer my birthday will last.
 
((((Big hugs to you all!))))

Now I'm looking around for 50 everywhere. What a great idea!

Fifty IS nifty! I passed that a couple of years ago. How fun to celebrate with your friends.

Happy Birthday!

I just got to your blog today and now will be looking for the #50! Only two more days! My husband celebrated this big one just a little over a month ago. I get to wait a little over a year yet. Your party sounds so fun!
