my birthday

Today is my birthday and I have plans with hubby to go to dinner and a movie (think we're seeing Mission Impossible).  I've seen several types of birthday posts - a retrospective of the art of the year, personal photos, a thoughtful, reflectively written post, etc.  Since I want to keep it simple and I'm not feeling particularly reflective, I opted for the photos - from a few landmark years.....

This seems a little self-indulgent, but it was fun for me and hopefully not too boring for you to get a glimpse into someone else's history.  If so, you can just skip this one.....  

2 years (my Natalie Woods phase)

13 years, 1965 with my younger sister

18 years, graduation

27 years, wedding day (still married to this great guy!)

40 years, family at Christmas

50 years, with my sister at my birthday party. (still coloring my hair here)

If you're a regular, you've seen lots of me recently (remember the GPP 'get out from behind the camera' post?) but here's one more at 59 years today.  (quit coloring my hair about a year ago - still surprised when I pass a mirror :))
What a fun trip down memory lane for me!  A little mini album of my life (ha!).


  1. A VERY Happy Birthday Terrie! Love travelling the passing years with you... they've been very kind. I gave up dying my hair at about 35 (I dyed it black!!!), and the Universe rewarded me by only now, at 67, giving me a few grey hairs. I'll happily go grey now, a badge of honour for getting this far.

  2. Nice photos, happy birthday! Valerie

  3. Thank you for sharing these great photos Terrie. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday and also wishing you wonderful Christmas and New Year, Hugs Annette x

  6. Happy belated birthday.... hope the celebrations were great and I loved seeing the photos as they progressed.... and my favourite is the very last one... love the natural hair... think you look funky and cool and creative... sounds about right to me...xx
