Today my dearest love turns 43. I met him when he was 19, we married when he was 23, and this October we celebrate 20 years of married life. Hard to believe how fast the time goes. But it doesn't matter what the numbers say, he is a child at heart. And he keeps me young(ish). I give credit to his artistic soul.
For the first time in eight years we are home for his birthday...normally we are on the Cape, his favorite place. Tomorrow we leave and I know he is counting the hours. While we are gone, we are promising to disconnect from email, internet (including our blogs, his facebook, and all other webbish things), cell phone (except for emergencies), and all. I'm not giving up my iPod, but all other electronics are unwelcome for the next 7 days. If I've set it up right, there will be scheduled posts over the next few weeks, re-treads of older posts about vacations, the Cape, etc.
Enjoy...and see you in a week.
