It’s a special day today

      2 Comments on It’s a special day today

Today’s a special day in our house because it’s Lizze’s birthday. I won’t mention her age, aside from saying that she’s younger than me.. ☺

Lizze is difficult to plan a birthday for so we’re gonna wing it.

We did the movie yesterday and we’ll probably do something small at home. We don’t make big deals out of our birthdays, as we reserve our resources for the kids.

Maybe we’ll do take out for dinner and have a movie night with one or more of her favorite movies. She’s a huge fan of the Now You See Me series and the new Jumanji. Those movies never get old for her.



While we don’t go overboard for our birthdays, we also don’t take them for granted either.

When Lizze and I were separated for a couple years, I would have given anything to celebrate her birthday together. You don’t (or at least I didn’t) realize how much these moments meant to me until it was gone.



Lizze and I have obviously reconciled since then and while we still keep our birthdays low key, at the same time, they’ve taken on a more special meaning. We truly appreciate being able to celebrate them together and it doesn’t really matter what we do, as long as we do it together.

I love my wife and I’m excited to celebrate her birthday once again.

Happy birthday Lizze! Don’t feel bad, you are still really young.–from a near 60 yr old woman.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday Lizzie, age is all in the mind as I am 65 but feel and act no different than I did when I was 25. Age means nothing unless you let it!
