Happy Birthday to my Man

IMG_20160207_132555302This is quite possibly one of the most temperate birthdays this February baby has ever had in his 53 (gasp!) years. And while we still have a few hours left to go, so far it’s pretty close to perfection.

The plan was for him to have a Mario Kart marathon with Hudi, Zeb, Bri and Lauren, but that plan changed very quickly when we woke up to gloriously sunny skies and warm air. It was 45 degrees when he and I hit the slopes after a few cups of coffee (and a wee bit of work)!

Swain today was a complete gift. We are so fortunate to have a place to play during this depressingly snowless winter. The slopes were powdery, there were lots of IMG_20160207_171335167people around, but it wasn’t obnoxiously crowded, and smiles were abundant. Happy sigh.

After a few hours we went home to a house where the Grateful Dead was playing, and the dog had already been walked. We ordered a Highlander pizza and a Veggie pizza then Chris and the kiddos took up the controllers. I happily listen to them as they play.

We sure miss CJ, but we know he’s super happy out on the slopes in Utah.

Want to know something crazy about this year? In a few months, I will have been part of Chris’ world for half of his life. That’s pretty pivotal, and I’m really happy he has let me be part of his journey.

Happy Birthday, Chris. I love you!

  1. Happy birthday!!!

  2. Happy birthday. I can’t believe how long we have been friends. I think we all met when you guys first started dating. Where does the time go? Have a great rest of your birthday, Chris.

      Isn’t it crazy? Lots of happy moments in those years…

  3. Happy birthday to Chris! And I’m so jealous of your nearby ski field. It looks so nice.

      I let him know 🙂 He says, “Thanks.” I am very thankful for those slopes. So nice to get fresh air and exercise in such a fun manner, with the whole family. We have a guy locally who turned a bike into a snowboard. I’ll have to post about that sometime. Made me think if you. 🙂

  4. I love the WordPress T-shirt! I still have mine from WordCamp!

      Aren’t they great? So comfortable! And I LOVE WordCamps!
