My Birthday Gifts

I don’t personally remember the day twenty-nine years ago, but I take my parent’s at their word when they tell me today’s my birthday.4.1

“Birthday? Let’s party!”

As a kid, birthdays were about the excitement of gifts and presents and things. The great part about getting older is realizing it’s not the things, but the things we do, which matter. And of course, who we do those things with.

4.2

A year ago today I had a great girlfriend and a great pup

4.3

Today I have a great fiancee and two great pups. Progress!

4.4

Eko and Penny chipped in and got me a card and gift. The gift happens to be coupons for dog treats, but their hearts are in the right place

Per the card’s suggestion we tried to take a nice family birthday selfie. This was as close as we came:

Eko whining for dinner, Penny attacking with kisses, me being foolish, Emily wondering how a nice girl like her got mixed up with us. A fitting photo, I think.

And the best gift of the year?

A winter-wonderland walk to the park with Emily and the pups

4.7 I’ll be spending my birthday with the big one, the little one and the middle one. What more could a guy ask for?

Life, in short, is good. No telling what this year will bring, but I’m certain I couldn’t ask for a better crew to go on the adventure with me.

Happy birthday! I didn’t know what to do during my lunch break yesterday since that’s usually when I read your blog, it was terrible!

Thanks! To kick of my 30th year, I caught a horrible stomach virus. Couldn’t drag myself out of bed all day and missed posting for the first time in years. Luckily Emily and the pups nursed me back to health so I’m alive and kicking today.
