I'm a little late getting back to your response but I had a really great birthday. My husband of 2 years (almost), bless him, blew it last year in the birthday department. Seems his family just doesn't celebrate anything much so I'm having to train my husband how to celebrate my birthday wishes. Easy...I just tell him what I'd like. 1. Card. 2. Gift (has to be something he comes up with). 3. Flowers (either given to me in person by himself or delivered). Sooooooooooooo, on my b-day morning he went even further (bless him). He brought me coffee in bed, brought me my card, gave me a beautiful watch which he'd wrapped himself in funny paper from the newspaper AND lo and behold about 2:30 in the afternoon the florist called to tell me he was lost and how did I get to my house? I acted surprised when he drove up and was really excited to see my favorite color flowers...THIS year my husband learned two things about his new wife. Listening pays off...and birthdays are important...(he's still smiling from my birthday...wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
It's a wonderful time to be alive...I'm glad I didn't miss it.
