Sisters

I can't believe my sister is 60. When I was growing up 60 was ancient. 60 is what elderly grandparents were. So it's hard to think that my big sis is 60. She's actually a pretty good advert for being 60. She certainly doesn't look it. (She doesn't have to resort to fake tan as she spends months at a time at her holiday home in Portugal!) And certainly doesn't act it. So if this is what 60 holds, it doesn't seem so bad. Especially when it's still 8 years away ;-)
So anyway, we all got together for her birthday yesterday. And her daughter managed to avoid going into labour 3 days early so she was able to be there with us too!

There was cake. (Did you notice I managed to buy serviettes to remind her how old she was? 'Cos that's the kind of things little sisters do.)
There were candles.

There was a picture of her with her MUCH younger sister ;-)

You both look awesome! I have a friend who did a photo essay called "this is what 50 looks like" that featured all kinds of strong, powerful 50 year old women. It opened my eyes to the idea that age can be just a number.

You two look gorgeous! Lol for getting the '60' serviettes, though now I'm worried as I have a little brother and sister, so I'm sure they'll be winding me up about being older too!

You both look fabulous! I read this yesterday and thought it was a good one to hold on to : "You'll never be younger than you are today so enjoy it"

60 is seeming younger and younger to me! I'll be 50 next year. :o)

Happy birthday to your sis!
