Where did 60 years go?

Yesterday was my - I can hardly believe it - 60th birthday! How did this happen? I'm not sad, or upset - just surprised, I guess!
My family threw me the best party ever!  Including a scratch-made coconut cake, yum!!!

Part of the decorations - a "looking back" poster, showing events from the year I was born.  So cute, thanks Hannah!

Another poster, with various photos through the years.

Baby me, 59 years ago! 

We had a PHOTO BOOTH at my birthday party! I love how they used a music stand as the tablet's tripod.  

They even had props, including the biggest floppy brimmed hat I've ever seen.  And as a perfect touch, they hung an antique quilt as a backdrop.  My grandma made this in 1944, as a wedding gift to my mom and dad.
Thanks for the great party!

Chris, what a lovely way to start out each new year celebrating your birthday! You look radiant! Your family's love is pouring out in every picture I see here! And to have the presence of your grandma and your mom and dad both through that quilt was quite thoughtful.
Happy Birthday to you!
