Celebrating in Sri Lanka

While Kuwait was celebrating it's National and Liberation Days on the 25th and 26th of February,
 I was in Sri Lanka celebrating my 50th.
This is the third birthday I've spent there and our friends always go out of their way to make me feel extra special.  Flowers upon arrival, signs in the garage and the walls and ceiling of the house decorated with butterflies, crystals, lanterns and pomanders.
I was totally mesmerized by it all and could not believe all the work that was put into making it so magical.

 
A wonderful celebration with good food and friends.
 The next day, when housekeeping at the hotel heard I'd had a birthday, they got in on the act and left some surprises for me, too.
I would definitely say I was more than a little spoiled.

A fabulous 50th!
Blessed and grateful,

Wow, Tammy that was wonderful! Happy birthday a little late! The decorations are all so pretty and how sweet that they spoiled you like that. I especially like the cake and the butterflies. And then your hotel room. My goodness how nice was that? 50 is grand. I have just a few years on you, I just turned 56 on February 1. It's really not so bad. :-)
Blessings, Betsy

Hi Tammy, Wish you a very Happy 50th Birthday. Looks like you had a fantastic celebration. What fun! But 50? Are you sure? You look decades younger which I'm sure is the result of your long walks, healthy eating and mainly positive attitude. Hope you have a wonderful year ahead. I, for one am glad for the company, as I too shall be 50 this year :) Well, life does begin at 50, doesn't it? Have a lovely day, my dear. Hugs.

Dearest Tammy,
Again, happy Birthday and you're a very young looking 50-year old lady!
But keep it that way, you walk and do things you love and eat a healthy vegetarian diet.
Good things for continuing.
So glad you got to celebrate in Sri Lanka in such an exotic way!
Hugs and blessings,
Mariette
