What do Sharon Stone, Madonna, Ellen Degeneres, Prince, Michelle Pfeiffer, and I have in common?  We’re all turning fifty! 

In fact, I confess, today is my big day.  No use in hiding your age when it’s recorded in the Library of Congress on every bibliographic record.  
Daughter and hubby have been whispering about some big surprise, but I’m still in the dark.  And all I want for my birthday is a trip to the zoo.  🙂  Really.  
So . . . thank you, Mom, for giving birth fifty years ago and putting up with me since.

    Happy Birthday Angela! My hubby’s in his 50s and he’s fabulous, so I’m all for it, lol

    Btw, we met over lunch at Mt. H last year, and I’m looking forward to seeing you again. Take care, and I hope your surprise includes swinging monkeys, pink flamingos, and a lion or two 🙂

    Happy birthday! I’m not far behind. I’ll be 46 next month. And look how many books to you have to show for being 50!

  6. Patti

    You didn’t say which zoo – but as you know Lowery Park is just across the Bay. Wishing you a very blessed birthday!!

    Happy birthday, Angela! I hit this milestone last year. You’re as lovely as ever, so enjoy the wisdom and grace you’ve accrued with the years!

  11. Nicole

    I marveled at the milestone when I turned 50–it just boggled my mind that I’d lived a half century!

    That was a “few” years back.

    Happy Birthday, Angie. May you feel the Lord’s smile on your day and His divine touch throughout your celebration.

    Happy birthday! My mom said when she turned fifty that she had the next half of her life ahead of her… and was looking forward to it. 🙂

    Have a happy, happy birthday and a blessed year!

    A prisoner of hope,

    Happy Birthday Angie! 🙂

    Happy Birthday!!
    Fifty is the new thirty-five — or something like that.
    You won’t actually BE fifty until you’re eighty!

  18. Marla Taviano

    Happy, happy birthday, Angie! You’re definitely the most Mac-savvy 50-year-old woman my husband has ever met in all his life. And a brilliant writer to boot.

    I want to be you when I grow up.

    Lotsa love.
