But for now I'd like to share about the most fabulous day EVER that my children and hubby recently gave me! July 29th was my birthday and this year was one of those years some refer to as a milestone year or is that a milestone number ;-) lol To help me try to let the number to sink in a little and help me celebrate in a BIG WAY my kids and hubby got together and threw me an amazing wonderful birthday party! Now seeing how the hubby and I live in VA, one of my children lives in Cranford NJ and another lives in West Chester PA we all ended up on the road to MI the same day/evening lol good ole Ohio turnpike so we could all gather to celebrate with our friends and family in the area I raised my children; Clinton Township, MI. I knew they were giving me a party but that was it! I was not allowed any details so one might be able to imagine my fears since I do have a wild imagination and add to that my older son had been teasing me unmercifully about their plans to "finally get me"....lol. We all know paybacks can be hell...lol. Well the party was beyond my wildest dreams a WONDERFUL day...so many important friends of mine came and family to help me ring in the big birthday. ;-) It was AMAZING!
My daughter created the most exceptional book, such an amazing gift from my hubby and children...so many memories and she did not miss a thing, my life so far...She must have worked hours and hours on it. Such a treasured present.
