A Special Birthday Wish

Today Shiva’s House of Deluded Dreamers is celebrating a special day: the birthday of my one and only Practically Husband.


We’ve been together a long time, he and I. It’s hard to recall life without him by my side. Every day I am so thankful I met him and agreed to go out with him for coffee that late Sunday night. I often think about how differently things would have turned out if I had accepted a different job. At the time I had been offered two. It was pure luck I chose the hotel, a position that would introduce me to some of the best friends I’ve ever had, and, of course, the most important friend of all.

I’ve laughed over the fact that when he gave me his number I took it without any intention of calling. I tucked it into my back pocket and then forgot about it completely. He’s persistent, my PH, and I love him for it. I tell him the only reason I agreed to go out with him a second time was because I fell in love with his adorable cat. In truth, I think they are both pretty cute.


Happy birthday to the one person who will put up with all my insanity, who will drive me and Shiva to agility workshops on bitterly cold mornings, entertain my random dreams of blogging glory, and cook me amazing meals every night with a smile on his face. I hope I can help make it a special one.
