Now that I’m not a kid anymore the excitement of my approaching birthday is not as great as it was. Other things get in the way – work, kids, family, etc. and unless it is a birthday ending in a zero, it often passes with a card, a candle and a lot of hugs and kisses from little ones. Not that that is a bad thing, and many of mine have passed wonderfully this way. But this year I wanted MORE! I wanted to really celebrate with family and friends and make a big deal of it. At this age I feel more at peace with myself and my life than ever before and the people in my life are there for the long haul.
I invited 7 of my long time girlfriends to a night away – away from kids, husbands, responsibilities and commitments. Six of us made it to the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley which was the perfect spot with a 3 bedroom villa, pool and spa. What more could we want? Dinner at Leaves and Fishes with very attentive service, great food and an even more fabulous discount.
