In early November (the 5th to be exact) I turned 60. Seems to me someone else in our class had a Guy Fawkes birthday…Penny Bodine, is that you? At any rate, I have crossed over…and not quietly, I may add.
My wonderful husband John took me to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands (Sorry I didn’t stop by Jeni but we were only there for 4 days!) to my favorite beach for my birthday celebration. We stayed at the Sandcastle on White Bay, Jost Van Dyke. Here we are in the gorgeous waters and with the other guests on our last night.
At the famous Soggy Dollar Bar with its famous “Painkillers.”
The beautiful water!
When I returned to school, my students celebrated on the actual day, November 5th. I had to wear this hat all day!
Then the following weekend my kids came home, stretching out the celebrations to almost two weeks. Check out the cake! It was a highlight!
The celebrating was fun but it’s taken me three weeks to recover!
