Today is my husband’s 52nd Birthday.
Jeffrey has simple tastes. He doesn’t like big celebrations, parties, or plans. He prefers simple, relaxing birthdays. So we both took the day off, and I got up early to decorate, put his presents out, and make a ham, cheese, bacon and egg casserole for breakfast.
After breakfast, he opened his gifts, and then we headed out for a little birthday shopping; and by little, I mean one shirt and tie – this guy lacks the materialism gene almost entirely. We stopped on the way home and got him a cheeseburger sub for lunch. (We suspended his carb-free diet for the day so he could enjoy a few birthday treats.)
Now we’re home watching the first DVD of “Northern Exposure” (I got him the whole series on DVD because it’s not available on streaming anywhere.)
Tonight, we’ll go to dinner at one of his favorite restaurants.
It’s a simple day for a simple man, but I hope I’ve made it as special for him as he always makes me feel ever day.
Happy birthday, Jeffrey! Thanks for being a great husband, life partner, and friend!
