It's My Birthday

Today is a BIG day that marks the beginning of a new episode in my life - Medicare.
And so, it seemed a good time to take a trip down memory lane.


(Many) years ago, photography studios made house calls . . .


Posing for photos with a (slightly) older cousin (check out the vintage auto) . . .


Looking at the camera was never a problem (can't you tell?) . . .

Years ago, holiday dress-up was mandatory for many little girls, myself included . . .



That was then and this is now.

It may be TOO late, as the penguins have already stolen any remaining sanity.

There are no blowout birthday bashes scheduled at The Frog & PenguINN to mark this milestone birthday (by request). Grenville made a deliciously wonderful apple pie served with vanilla bean ice cream last night. It was so good and calories never count on birthdays (right?)

That doesn't mean no celebration. We're co-celebrating my birthday and Hearts Day with a road trip in the next few weeks. The trip includes visiting a long-time friend,  fellow blogger, and a cousin whose birthday is 2 days after mine.

Memories are more precious than things -- I have so many and more to come.

Milestones aren't so bad after all.

Congratulations on getting older. It's not all it's cracked up to be, but I imagine the medical benefits are worth it. Nice vintage photos too.
