happy birthday to the one i love

I love this picture.  smart.  handsome.  stern.  rugged.  just a few of the many, many reasons why I fell in love with this man of mine.  and today is his birthday!  It's a Tuesday and we all had to go to work, because that is what you do on a Tuesday.  You go to work.  But tonight we will celebrate his birthday with a big party.  Okay, not really.  As much of an extrovert as Joe is, I think he likes spending time alone with his little family on his birthday.  Maybe he's like me and you sulk at getting a year older.  I really only sulked when I turned 30, but who really likes getting older?  So tonight we will pick up P.F. Chang's for dinner, maybe light a fire, we will all (wife + kitties) watch him open up his gifts and blow out a few candles, 31 to be exact.  So much better than any ole party.

You are the love of my life and I'm so very grateful that you are mine.  Happy Birthday Joe.


  1. Happy birthday, Joe! Yep, we're definitely in the "we'll get restaurant food and make a cake, but that's it" camp for birthdays. Hope y'all have a great night celebrating.

  2. Happy birthday to your man!

  3. Happy birthday to your Joe! Your plans sound fantastic, I hope you have a wonderful evening!
