  186. Congratulations on reaching a great milestone! Celebrations for me are either with my hubby out for dinner or spent with close family. I'm not a great one for big parties. Good luck on the next seven years!

  189. I'm also a March birthday and I like to celebrate by walking with family out in the fresh air....and maybe a trip to a quilt shop on the way home.

  190. I think the best way to celebrate is to have good friends and family gathered around and go out for a nice meal with them. No cooking or cleaning! I hope you can enjoy your day the same way!
