Please forgive me, I’ve been celebrating!

I’m a half a century old!!

A milestone birthday for sure!

My wonderful sister sent me a plane ticket so I could come up to The Mitten and spend nearly a week celebrating with the Capris and many family members.

And celebrate we did!

Art shows, eating, gardens, eating, birthday party, eating, A KITTEN, eating….

… you get the picture. 

I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I usually do, but here’s a look back on my birthday week.

First up… A trip to Grand Rapids to visit Meijer Sculpture Gardens.

I could easily have spent a full day in these gardens alone but we had a packed schedule for the day ahead!

After lunch in the gardens we went over and saw 2011’s winner of the Grand Rapids Art Prize show. A gorgeous mosaic… it was unbelievably stunning and thought provoking…
