Does Life go faster after 50?

Last Thursday I turned 50 – oh yes I did. I got my Nikon D60 from my great husband. I love it. I need to go take classes to learn how to use it. Friday night my sister Julie, my kids and my BFF’s threw me a Fiesta and a great time was had by all~alot of the people I love were all together in one room eating Mexican food, laughing, playing and  dancing-how FUN!!!

Did you say you’d like to see some pictures? Well of course…

I think I’m going to like my fifties-it just seems like time is going faster. I have wanted to download my pics all week and share and life just passed in the snap of my finger.

I think of the Harry Chapin song I love~

I let time go lightly when I'm here with you,
I let time go lightly when the day is through.
I keep a watch on time when I've have work to do,
I let time go lightly with you.

I want time to go lightly when I am with my loved ones-my grandkids- my family-my girlfriends. I want our time to be like gifts –gifts of memories we make- that are more precious than stuff we acquire!

Did you say you’d like to see some dancing…June 09 066

Life is GOOD!

Be blessed!
