HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME~Where have the years gone?

A Big hello to all of you out there in Blogland...
Happy Day to all of you and Happy Birthday to me..

That picture was taken 10 years ago today as I celebrated my Birthday with all my friends in the Casino on kelley's Island...

This was taken 7 years ago .....that's my boat that I'm sitting in..looking back at all my past Birthday Pictures really makes me miss her so much... some things we simply have no control over like Boat repairmen...
Its so hard to beleive that I have owned my own boat and have been coming to the island for fun and work for 10 years.. It seems like yesterday that this picture was taken.. I remember all the fun we had dancing all night long... LOL.. I couldn't dance all night long tonight...if I tried...

Do you ever wonder where all that energy you had 10 years ago went?
I can remember it was nothing for me to go clean 4 houses.... then meet up with my friends at the boat and then dance till 2:30 and then sit around on the docks and talk till 3 or 4 in the morning..... get up and do it all over again the next day...

This was taken 8 years ago and we seriously did dance all night long that night... maybe that's what I need to go dancing it certianly keeps you in great shape... that's probably why I could work all day and dance all night back then...LOL....

Many Friends made and many memory's made here on my little island get away.. and maybe I can't dance all night long anymore but I still meet new people all the time and still have memory's to tuck way for those Birthday's in the future when riding the waves of Lake Erie, enjoying the peaceful sunsets and sharing an evening with friends on the back of somones boat is long gone...

In many ways boating and blogging share some of the same treasures... Both have brought new friends into my life, both have shown me all the other treasures in life..that I may not have ever known had I not ventured into those worlds...
Bless you all for being a part of my world and sharing a part of your world with me...

  15. Happy belated birthday Tonya!! (Have been without power for 13+ hours and am just now trying to catch up....) This was a beautiful post - a little bittersweet (yeah, me neither - can't dance all night long and get up and take a Constitutional Law exam....heck...I can't even dance half the night long and still function the next day these days!!) ;o) - but filled with beautiful memories of some wonderful moments. And I love your analogy between boating and Hope your day (and night) was spent doing what, and being with those, you love best. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
