Be-Early Birthday

We are celebrating hubby's birthday tonight -- a few days early. Being the shy, low key guy that he is, he wouldn't appreciate being the topic of this post. He is a privacy fiend, and luckily he doesn't read blogs. So don't tell him and things will be peachy keen.

We're gathering at his favourite Chinese food restaurant - a place with nostalgia (for hubby) and really good chicken balls.

It seems a little strange to celebrate on a day that isn't really your birthday, but as you get older you realize it isn't the date that is important as much as an opportunity for a clan cluster to celebrate with you. Without the clan or cluster, it's just another day.

So hubby, I won't post your picture, but I can imagine your beaming face when that shiny new Porsche gets delivered ... just kidding. That won't be for a few more years yet. I can imagine your glowing smile when you look around the table and realize that alot of people really love you alot - even more than those light, crispy chicken balls.

Happy Be-Early Birthday Hubby, from someone who loves you even more than you love Schumacher or Beethoven.

  1. Loved the 'Be-Early Birthday' time together with all. You're right - it's not about the presents, it's about the love surrounding us all.


I've made it easier to comment - no nasty word verification. So let me know you dropped by.
