Remember my post about Julie on a Harley? Well, my neighbour Nancy had the wonderful idea of throwing Julie a block party to celebrate her 90th birthday. I have to say, Julie was completely surprised and so delighted. We lined up on both sides of the side walk with helium balloons and, once she realized it was all for her, she broke into the cutest strut as though she was just called down to be a contestant on the Price Is Right. 90 balloons were given to her with much love and best wishes and she released them into the heavens as a symbol of her sharing her 90 years of wisdom with the rest of us. We did a bunch of research about latex balloons beforehand and used cotton string to make sure we were as eco-friendly as we could be. Neighbours brought goodies and we all celebrated together on a beautifully sunny Victoria Day weekend. Below are a collaboration of photos from myself and Nancy. We had fun! PS: today is her actual birthday!
Happy Birthday Julie! We’re so glad you are our neighbour.
