I have vivid memories of an awesome couple who taught me as a youth at church and the husband was 35. They were the epitome of what I wanted to be with my family/spouse. I thought 35 was pretty old. They had kids, a home and a light dusting of gray hair.
I remember trying to comprehend what it would be like to be that old...but it just seemed too far away.
Now I am married to a 35 year old. He has kids, a home, and pets...but so far no gray hairs. It's a good thing he looks like he's 25 and has the energy of an 18 year old.
Age is just a number.
A new watch (his addiction), a watch display box (remember he's addicted which means lots of watches), blue tooth headphones (he's also a nerd), new shoes (is my addiction rubbing off on him?), and a Kindle Fire (YES! Now I don't have to wait to read while he plays games) were all appreciated by the birthday boy.
He especially liked his new tee that paid homage to a super rad show.
I saved what I thought was the best present for last and couldn't wait to give to him.
I sent Kent of ZippyPortraits a few pictures of our family and he worked his magic on the one he liked best. He chose this picture below:
There may have even been a tear or two in his eyes. This man loves his family something fierce.
Happy Birthday Dear (I informed him I could now officially call him that now that he's "older"). We love you something fierce as well!!
