Seventy Five

When you write out that number, 75, it for some reason doesn’t feel as big, or in this case as old, as to a younger me 75 would seem.  But my sister Pat turned 75 yesterday and along with Monica, Phillis and Beverly, we had a great celebration and of course great food!

Pat cooked, she can’t help herself, and made a delicious meal of shells florentines, a mixed salad, Italian bread and glasses of her favorite wine and coffee.  Then of course time for gifts and reading of birthday cards!


For dessert we had two cakes, one a traditional chocolate and another an ice cream cake, complete with a topping that set off sparkles that then lit the candles and opened up into a flower!




If I am half as active and healthy as my sister when I turn 75, I’ll be super happy.  Monica and I are so glad to have made the trip and made it here in time for Pat’s birthday.
