We’ve been lucky. In almost 12 years of marriage, Handsome has never missed a Christmas or kids’ birthday — which is a small miracle considering how frequently deployments and training trips take him out of town.
My birthday is another story; almost always a casualty of his military schedule. We’ve only spent 4 together. So this weekend, when a lovely friend offered to watch both our kids for the night Handsome jumped at the chance to make this birthday special.
Traipsing through an art museum with Handsome is very entertaining. He finds humor in things I would have otherwise missed and keeps me from taking ‘real art’ too seriously.
On the way home we wandered the aisles of Ikea… kidless. Yeeessss!!!
It was the best birthday in years! So far, thirty-three agrees with me. :)
