I try really hard to make birthdays special for my family. I think it’s because I just think it’s important to let the people I love know how special and loved they are. I pray they feel this way every day, but their birthdays are a day where they deserve to be celebrated.
We were blessed this year that I didn’t have to work on D’s birthday and he took the day (and whole week!) off. It was the perfect summer day of coffee and treats and gifts and spending time together. Then that evening my mom watched the kids so I could take the birthday boy out for supper. We went to Red Cow in St. Paul and then walked the cute streets on the beautiful evening after eating way too much.
We love this guy and are so grateful for all he does for our little family.
