This is what a half a century looks like.

Happy Sunday and Happy birthday to me! I surf, dance, power walk, scuba dive, volunteer, sew, read, laugh loudly and love deeply. Today I turn 50. I am so grateful for these first fifty years. Oh my, I’m a half-century young!

I choose to eat, read, and do what I like, surround myself with uplifting and forward thinking people and live everyday as big as I can from sun up to way past sundown.

I have been empowered and empowered others. I have loved and am loved. I look forward to the next 50 years and will live with grace, ease, joy and zest.

Thank you for being here with me on my birthday!

Remember, 50 is the new 30!

I love my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free, please), and laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERYDAY. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I love to share my FUN life.

  1. …that means 70 is the new 50, which is what I will turn in March of 2013, yikes. Denise, I love your look, uplook and outlook ~ you’re one fantastic woman, and I am so happy to be included in your 5-0. Happy Birthday to a woman who gives so much joy to so many.
