coming of age...

1978 was a good year...and October 21st was a very good day...

...and so today we celebrate my daughter's birthday.
We took the celebration on the road this year...and will make it one to be remembered!

And not to go without mention...someone we know well is celebrating her seventieth birthday today.

Now that she is so much older and wiser...she will have to give up all the shenanigans!

Until now she could not really be left unsupervised...or she was bound to get into trouble.

She has had a lot of time to get used to the idea of being 70...and so today we go public...and wish her a most wonderful birthday celebration.

Happy birthday to my sister-in-law, Martha !

May you have many more mountaintop experiences in the days and years that lie ahead!

Birthday blessings to you...

  6. 1978...a VERY good year to give birth to fabulous daughters! (Mine came in July of that year!) shucks. Just a kid really. Ninety year olds are heading off to college, eighty year old (former Presidents) are parachuting out of airplanes. I suspect that Martha has a few more decades of surprises to deliver to her family!

  7. Oh a very happy birthday to your daughter and to Martha!!
    Our first was born in January of 1979 :0)

  8. Wow! Who would have known, your sister's birthday, your daughter's birthday and my one twin's birthday. How special! That was a really nice tribute to your beautiful daughter and your sister. Happy Birthday to both of them. I find it a privilege to share these important dates with you and your family.

  9. happy birthday to both of the special ladies in your life! i hope i am adventurous when i am 70!

  10. Happy birthday to Heidi and Martha!

  11. Thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes for my 70th birthday. I was eased into it gently - starting in September when we began celebrating with my brother at his 60th in September.

    Thanks again for all your well wishes. I have just enjoyed 2 fun filled days with friends and family.

  12. Happy birthdays to both!
    I hope you have a wonderful celebration.

  13. Two birthday girls at once. I hope both had a wonderful birthday.

    I just know you are having a great time. I can't wait to see pictures.
