Collage made Jacqui to celebrate my 50th

I celebrated my 50th birthday on Saturday evening with my sisters, mom, bestie and a few friends.  We had an informal gathering with ‘cheese and whine’.  It was relaxed and laid back and I did consume a little too much vino.  Thanks to my bestie for taking care of me and putting me to bed.

I decided to wear my white jeggings with this gorgeous top from one of the chinese stores and my Engelsrufer that I received from my sister for my birthday.  I”‘m so smitten with it.  At one point I messed some red wine on the leg of the jeggings and had to change into a black pair – was a little merry and clumsy.

Two weeks back I did another shoot with a different photographer who has been saying for two years he’d like me practice some lighting setups on me.  I’m dying to see the rest of the images, but here is a little collage.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may well have seen them there as well.  The outfit above was one that I wore at the shoot and I’m dying to see how it came out.  We shot low key and had tons of fun.  I was so excited by the gym images.

And just like that, the 40s are over and the 50s are here.  Plans and dreams and reassessing and accepting what is gone and looking forward to what is still to come.  Life is just not as I’d imagined it would be, however, I’m adamant to have more adventures, love the life I have and let what will be, be.  I’ve had such a buzzy excited feeling deep inside for days now.

    You’ll enjoy your fifties. We’re wiser and still young enough to be physically fit and active.

    Happy Birthday! Your photo’s are ~ amazing !!!! I celebrated 50 this past May. I know it’s a wonderful milestone that not everyone gets to celebrate, so trying to see the age from that perspective vs. the mirror perspective 😉

    Monica.
