Happy Birthday to my husband

A bit more than 12 years ago, I met my future husband.  We chatted on the internet for months before the initial meeting.  About 5 months later, we decided to meet.  The first date was easier because we already knew a bit about each other, so there wasn't any awkward silences.  By the second week, I knew I wanted to marry him, and he asked me if I would marry him.  We have been married for over 11 years now.

I am one of those lucky gals.  My husband sees the importance of me being home with my son, but I also work my own hours doing family history.  He is a great provider--friends and family have all said at one time or another that his auto tech skills basically make him the doctor of cars.  If someone else can't figure out what the problem is, he usually can.

Yesterday was actually his birthday, but we had a busy day, so today I am blogging about it so we will always remember his 36th birthday.  My brother called and told us he wanted to bring us out for lunch as a birthday present.  Very generous, because husband broke his ankle which makes money tight.  We love going out.  Then we had to clean out the attic.  Yes, on my birthday that would have been a bit of a problem, but we knew we had to do it for the yard sale and moving, so we did it.  Then he hung out with my sister and her children for a bit while I got dinner ready.  Almost everyone in my family was able to come over and celebrate with us.  I made a delicious meatloaf and mashed potatoes (he wanted it) and a No bake cheesecake.  It turned out pretty good.

I feel very fortunate to have met my husband.  Yes, married life for us has been a battle of wills at a time, but at the end of the day, we are glad we got married.  Happy Birthday honey!
