This post is my response to Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday challenge for the letter “D”. You can find other “D” posts here.
Today is my 60th birthday. Except for taking a vacation day from work, I don’t usually pay much attention to birthdays, though I must admit I’ve been looking forward to this one for most of the year. It could be that 60 is just a nice round number or perhaps that it’s the beginning of the decade in which I hope to retire. Whatever, whyever, it’s nice to have reached this milestone.
Our family is pretty low key about most things, birthdays included. Cards, phone calls, maybe dinner out is usually the extent of our celebrations, so I was pleasantly surprised today when this beautiful floral birthday cake, a gift from my stepson and stepdaughter, was delivered.
