Beau is such a darling little dog. What kind is he? I picked out a pup three years ago that I thought would be a little brown dog, but he is now 50 pounds! Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th to you! I was so thrilled to see I'm your lucky winner and now that I'm back from the Land of Enchantment, I'll be checking out the garden lighting! Maybe something to remind me of the trip to New Mexico! Thanks so much for sharing your gift with me! ♥♫

Happy 4th of July Cindy!!! One of my closest friends was doing the online dating thing but she's taking a little break. She's almost 50 also and a single mom of two...her next step is to try softball and see what kind of guys are there:)

Good luck and happy birthday to little Beau!

Heidi said...

Cindy,
Chatting online is a great way to get to know someone! I met my husband online over Labor Day weekend in 2003. He lived in England! We met in person one year later and we've been very happily married for 5 1/2 years. I was in my late forties then, too.

Have a lovely holiday weekend!

Happy 4th of July, Cindy! Talking to any member in the military, ESPECIALLY on the 4th of July is an honor. (Spoken by a proud military mother). I have a post on my blog right now if you care to check it out. Just be careful...make sure he's not married. (spoken by a proud mom now) Does he have a facebook acct? Most of them do, I would ask. How exciting to celebrate your 50th! When I turned 50 I threw myself a huge party, I really embrace every singe year. I'm a firm believer that we are definitely getting better with age, enjoy the holiday...Marcia in Turlock

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAU and HAPPY 4th.
And Cindy good luck with the online
dating. Sounds like it's off to a
good start. You would be a fabulous
catch, your smart,pretty,talented
and a girl that knows what she wants. So what if you will be 50,
heck that's the new 30 now.LOL.
You have a wonderful personality too. Good Luck!!":O)

Good for you Cindy...it is a big step to do the on-line dating thing but it is rewarding.
My sister is still in love and happily engaged to a man she met at an on-line dating site. She
is not interested in getting married for awhile since it would be her 2nd marriage. Good luck and enjoy all the fun ahead!

Sherry from Alabama said...

What a lovely place to celebrate your Fourth. Cute companion too! Best wishes with your new "friend." I happen to think 50 is the perfect age for new beginnings. That's how young I happen to be. :)

Good for you, I wish you the best on the online dating. I did it years ago with not such good results but with lots of funny annecdotes. Like the very charming fellow that look so shy and when going for a walk after dinner asked me if I liked to be spanked...lol

Best of luck!

Hi Cindy, I'm sorry that I haven't been a follower long enough to know what you looked like before your haircut but I like it...it looks very natural. FYI my husband and I met online in 1999...we celebrated our 8th anniversary this past February. We are best friends. It wasn't a dating site...it was just plain old Yahoo and we met in a public 'room' by accident. Best thing that ever happened to either of us....all the best to you! PS...I was 47 when we first met ;) Take care....Maura :)
