Happy 47th Birthday to Me

Wow. I’m 47 years old. Like, right now.

That’s pretty amazing.

To be honest, 47 feels pretty, well, old…but in a good way, given that I’m not someone who worries about getting older day by day and year by year as it happens.

    Happy 47th birthday, Shannon!
    My birthday is in May and for the most part as an adult it is rather low key which is fine with me! I am older than you are by several years and I admit, it bothers me to be in my 50’s.
    For all of the adult birthdays in my family (mom, siblings and myself) we get together usually on the weekend just before the person’s birthday and have a cake and ice cream for the guest of honor and usually the person receives a few modestly priced gifts or else a gift card or cash in a birthday card.
    On my birthday itself, I sometimes go to lunch or dinner with a friend and that is pleasant and a nice treat. Another time a friend and I went to a casino with a small amount of money and played slots for a while. That was kind of fun — especially when I won 80.00 lol!
    But I am also just as content with a sweet treat and a good book or a trip to the ocean even just to walk the beach.
    I don’t go for the bar scene celebrations at all. It’s just never appealed to me.

      Oh your festivities sound right up my alley as well!:) I once won $100 playing slots-so exciting!
