he is forty

Yesterday my love turned 40.

I had imagined that when he turned the big 4-0, I would have surprised him with a little get away to New York or maybe even a gathering of friends...

but he got breakfast in bed and homemade cards.

I did arrange for the kids to go next door and I took him for a romantic dinner.

We sat in the window.

I wore a bra...highly unusual.

We ordered mushroom bruschetta, beet salad and fried chicken. It was delicious.

I did surprise Kevin and pulled a little candle out of my purse and stuck it in our strawberry rhubarb pie...a la mode.

He made a wish.

We ate the pie...

one slice...

two forks.

I love pie. And Kevin.


  1. ahhhhh.....40.
    my 40th year is just nearing its close...41 any minute now.

    I love you
    and your love
    for your husband
    and pie

    his birthday looked perfect

    after dinner, I can't help but wonder...did that bra come off? ;-)

  2. This post made me smile. Sretan rodendan to your Kevin. That's happy birthday in Croatian. :)
