happy birthday to ME!!

happy birthday to ME!!

Throughout your 40’s, you get a birthday week.  (i made that rule when i turned 40)  At 50, you get a whole birthday month.  (Again, my rule–as i remind HK, “jules rules”).  My month is coming to an end, so i celebrated this weekend w/ 80 or so friends. It was tons of fun, with music by Wade in the Rhythm, a local band that plays reggae-inspired, feel-good music with a message,

lots of dancing, laughing, eating and drinking. I had a carrot-cake with tie-dye icing from rhodes bakery. YUMMY!  BBQ was from low country barbeque-they do the BEST ccarolina-style pulled-pork–mmmmm, melt in your mouth good eatin’!And everybody brought a side dish to share. (we’ve got some great cooks in the ‘hood).

Everybody wore a hat (theme was hat’s off to jules, and yes, that is a tiarra on my cowboy hat) and i really racked-up on great cards and gifts!

while reflecting back on the party yesterday, i believe-especially as we get older (and better),  that it is important to share special occasions with people you love (or really like a lot), reinforcing goodness and joy in this life.

so, thanks to everybody who celebrated with me, you helped make my birthday month very special, indeed!
