Fifty years ago today I made my way into the world at 2:02 am. Born two weeks before I was due, I was rooted out of the womb early when my mother’s doctor suggested I looked big enough to deliver and as he was going on vacation, an earlier delivery might work better for them both.
The photo above is one of the earliest I have of my newborn self and my dad happens to be holding me. I’ve no time to write this morning as Margaret and I are off to meet up with John for some fun around London, but I did want to say thank you for the sweet birthday comments you’ve left over the last 9 days.
I’ll be back in a day or two after I recover from our London journey with loads more stories and photos. See you then.
Happy Birthday Izbob!!! Hope my big sis and my other big sis are having a fantabulous time!! Make it an amazing birthday (cards for both are on the way):)
Happy Birthday, Elizabeth. Enjoy your day and sister and London. I owe you an apology for not coming to that dinner. Last minute decision to go on a trip kept me from coming. I had hope to get to meet you.
Yay! Happy Birthday to you 🙂 Hope you have a terrific day today and get to spoil yourself a bit!
Have an absolutely lovely day. Happy Birthday Elizabeth!
many happy birthdays! You are just coming into your own now and can march into the future full of self-certainty!
Happy Birthday Elizabeth!
Happy Big Birthday, Elizabeth!! Glad you are having such a fab time in London, can’t think of a better place to celebrate such an important date! And needless to say, you could have told us it was your 40th and I would have believed you, you look amazing 🙂 Kxo
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELIZABETH!!! Enjoy your time with your sis and hubby. Your a doll for sharing with us while you are enjoying the journey at the same time. I have always intended to journal when I have traveled and have never even done that. AND…you are becoming so English-y in your phrases…”‘loads’ more stories and photos” I love it.
Have a wonderful, fun-filled happy day….I have really enjoyed your tour of London…..and your sis sounds like a riot!!
Happy Birthday, Elizabeth! What a great photo of you and your Dad. A prize winner. Is that your chin I’m noticing on your dad? Have a great, great day. The best is yet to come!
May all your birthday wishes come true!
Happy Birthday dear Elizabeth!! May your next 50 years bring you all the love and joy you have earned!
Thank you for sharing so much with us!! xxx
Never mind Sean Connery, how about Clark Kent??

Hope you have the best of days and years ahead.
Happy Happy birthday dear Elizabeth !!! Hope you had a great day!!
Just now had a chance to read thru all of your recent posts leading up to your big birthday!! Wishing you a happy one…that it be everything you wish for..and more.
Happy Birthday and have a great time!
I’ve been loving your posts lately. Full of inspiration and memory. Happy Birthday and a great year ahead!
50 is the new 30. Hope you had a great day! My soon to be 22 year old if off to Africa again during Christmas, so it will be a different kind of Christmas this year. We have decided that rather than spend the money on each other (since Kalen will be off doing something for others) we are going to adopt a family and do Christmas for them. After all, Christmas is a celebration and what better way to celebrate than to do for another?
A belated happy birthday — but just ’cause I’m late doesn’t mean I don’t care. 🙂
