This Is 50…

These are my parents.

My father turned 50 years old today!

I can’t believe it.

I remember when I thought that 50 was SOOOOOOO old. And now, well, I think much differently.

50 is cool. 50 is someplace that I aspire to get to. 50 is HALF A CENTURY!

50 is where you can start saying stuff to people and they start taking your word for it, because you’ve LIVED.

50 is what my daddy is today, and I love him.

Happy Birthday Poppy!

The Houseful wishes you many more.

~Make It A Fantastic Day
