This cake was almost too pretty to cut, but we did it anyway. And it was delicious.

The Husband is 50 today.

I can’t believe I’m married to someone that old, but here I am.

The Husband is a special kind of man; the kind who works hard, puts family and friends first, lives life to the fullest, is compassionate, caring and level headed.

And he is easy on the eyes.

I have no idea how I got so lucky when I married him all those years ago, but I somehow managed to score a keeper.

So when 50 rolled around, it was time to celebrate.

Last weekend, a few of our closest friends gathered for an afternoon celebration at Lucky Vines Vineyard & Winery.

The surprise bash was a whole lot of fun made even more special by our kids and several great friends who helped pull it off.

And there were others who made the day special as well. Don Nico’s did the catering, Signs Express Plus designed a “You’re still a hottie” banner and Jeff and Kim Hutchins and their fantastic team at Lucky Vines made sure that the celebration was picture perfect.

The Crown Royal creation with the words “Aged to Perfection” was absolutely perfect. I have learned that she can pull off just about anything.
