Middle age birthday toasts

Time to hit that bucket list

The neat thing about middle age birthday toasts is that they poke fun at the onset of aches, pains and latent maturity. The grand finale still seems decades away so now is the time to laugh and live life to its fullest.

Here are some ideas that that may inspire you to add some fun to your toasts or cards if you are helping someone celebrate a birthday who is in their 40s, 50s or beyond.

Remember, 70 is the new 50 and 50 is the new 30.

So  you qualify as middle-aged if you are at least 20 years out of school and not yet retired.
