Youth and Aging

Dear Kim,

Happy Birthday, Big Sister!


We made some great memories growing up together! I always looked up to you.  You were the prettiest, the wittiest and the most talented...




...and some things just never change. Today marks your 50th birthday, and I have watched you age with beauty, humor and flair.


Youth is the gift of nature, but age is the work of art!  

Happy 50th Birthday Kim!

Love, Bonnie Jo

Happy 50th!!! I was 49 yesterday! I loved the post where you talked about feeling like time was running out - that's how I feel too. And excuse me - WHEN did you put that chicken header up!? I love it!!! Gotta get here more often..I love it so.

GREAT pictures, Bonnie!!! These make me reflect on some of the fun times my sister and I had growing up, too... Perhaps I should start looking through old photo albums the next time I'm at Mom and Dad's ;)

Happy belated birthday! You two look like growing up was so much fun, and even tho I am a decade plus older, that living room decor looks sooo familiar, what was with those two story end tables??
here is a hint, 60 doesn't feel much different than 50, it is the 65th that gets ya!! Plan ahead, have lots of fun.
