This is a "lovely" photo of me at my 40th birthday party (after a few too many bellinis I think I actually thought I WAS a pirate!) Quote at the bottom reads "I think the thing to do is to enjoy the ride while you're on it" and was said by Johnny Depp (who just happens to play my most favorite character of all time ... Captain Jack Sparrow!) Background is a piece of 12x12 cardboard that I ripped the top layer off of and inked up with red, brown & black. Photo is printed on book paper to give it a bit of an old-fashioned look. Journalling tag reads:
Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate Party For Me
My 40th birthday, which I had been dreading all year, turned out to be the best party of my life! After going back & forth all year long about whether or not I wanted to celebrate it, we decided to go ahead with a big Halloween costume party. We called it "Pirate's of the Caribbean IV; Curse of the 40th Birthday". Almost everybody turned up in costume - I, of course, dressed up as a pirate! The best part of all is that I don't even feel 40!
