Alone on Birthday & Financially Strapped? – No Problem!

 Thinking About Having A Party for One?



 Time is Quickly Passing


 Every year I find myself more excited about being another year older and wiser. As I have aged, I have learned to delight in the passing phases of my existence and the merit of taking the time to celebrate the time I have spent so far here on this earth.  Birthdays are unique, because they are so personal, unlike New’s Years when we are all making amends for what we did and did not do over the previous 365 days and stating our resolutions, instead, we tend to look both back and forward but we are more sensitive to our individual evolution. This new perception has affected my birthdays, making this one special day, I allow just for me, to become something worthy of planning. If I find that I am going to be alone, or if my budget  for entertaining is minimal to non-existent, I just put on my thinking cap, and let my imagination do all the work.


Contemplating the Details of the Big B-Day Event 

Stimulating Ideas and Bringing Forth Fantasies

Narrowing the Focus

Day Dreaming  About the Dynamics


Managing the Melancholy by Feeling Ageless & Feeling Positive

Allowing the Imagination to Run Free

Dancing About Creatively

Thinking it Through 

Making B-Day Magic


 And… Singing  Our Own Birthday Song

Even if …No One Else Elects to Sing Along

 We Can Still Be Thrilled About Our Big Day!

Another Birthday Another  Fresh New Age to Be

Birthday Cake Anyone? 

And, now, for that All Important Decision, the Selection of the “Birthday Dress”

What to Wear, – maybe something, down to earth

Feeling Absolutely Gorgeous and Giddy

Perhaps…a little too much of the bubbly

Ops, Time to Open Gifts

My favorite Present

 Some Rather Unusual Party Fun

Saying Thank You and Goodbye to All the Well Wishers

At Least Until Next Year

 Better start planning next years B-bash because the years are just flying by…
