A Surprising Year So Far

It has been a surprising year so far here at my little Home Acre.

Just after Christmas I celebrated a milestone birthday......50!!
Just before Christmas, this gal, sweet Sherry, and this gal,
my sweet daughter Emily, collaborated to throw the best darn surprise party you
ever did see!! And I was truly surprised.  I usually really DON'T have a clue :)

Truly surprised!
***Sorry for the blurry pics.***

Fabulous and delicious food.  Sherry is an excellent cook!

I have the most wonderful group of friends a gal could ask for.  I received so many lovely gifts.
The best gift of the evening was the touching and heartfelt toast that Sherry made.
I am truly blessed.

The second best gift of the evening......
A handmade book (by Sherry, of course), that held beautiful
sentiments from everyone that attended the party (and one or two that didn't).
I will never be able to adequately thank....
*  Sherry for all the work she put into my party....
*  Emily for helping during such a busy time with her school and work schedule....
*  Or all my wonderful pals for the love and good wishes.
