Today I get to celebrate my 55th birthday…the “double nickel.” It’s also my daughter’s birthday, but if she wants to talk about hers, she better start blogging. LOL
It is not lost on me that this is another milestone in my life and I’m very grateful to be able to see this day. Many of my friends didn’t get to see 55 years of age. I may not have everything I’d like to have in this world, but I have to say for the most part, I’m very happy.
I never thought that the best times of my life would be in my 50’s yet here they are. My kids are grown and following their own paths in life. I have a beautiful and smart granddaughter who is so loving, she would melt your heart. A great career (even though I’m ready for something new), I’m a float lieutenant in thee best all-female Mardi Gras Krewe in all of New Orleans, and my partner for life is the most amazing man. He is the perfect man for me in every way.
I’ve always been a late bloomer so, I guess this puts me right on schedule.
I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my life. I’m going to try to make it as interesting as humanly possible. Who knows, I may still be blogging and will be able to tell you all about it.
This year will be my 10th year blogiversary…never thought I’d make that one…yet here I am. See y’all on the flip side…I’m going to celebrate with NOLA and all the people in town for the Essence Fest. Should be interesting…and crowded.
