My friend Ruth turned 90 on July 3 and believe me, you'd never know she has reached this milestone. A dedicated high school English teacher who never married but has travelled the world.
We became good friends when she was president of our garden club and I was the secretary and there is much to learn from a woman like Ruth.
My husband and I picked her up from her house in the country, presented a corsage in peach which is her favourite colour and then on to a fancy restaurant for dinner to celebrate.
Ruth chose berries and ice cream for dessert and the waitress put a candle in for her.
A beautiful woman that I've enjoyed knowing for 13 years, she's not finished her travels yet and will head to the Arctic in September - you go girl!
