My dear wife Karen and I were honored to attend one of the best birthday parties ever Saturday afternoon.
The sun was shining. The breeze made the warm air tolerable. Kristin had set up the backyard beautifully for the surprise party she so painstakingly planned for her significant Jeff.
He loved it. His family and closest friends mingled, ate well, and told Jeff stories. He got to tell great tales, too, because he recently left the security of his longtime job running the service department of a bustling local auto dealership to attend nursing school. We all assured him what a great nurse he is going to be. Personally, I was happy toy relate how my terrific sister Dory just graduated and received her nursing bachelor’s down on Long Island, and she’s older than he is, so he’s doing a great thing.
We told Kristin how great she is supporting him in this life move, in every way. We told them how we’re looking forward to attending their wedding come October … On my dear wife Karen’s birthday, in fact!
And I got to meet the new member of their little family. Karen had met Roxy previously. I’m saving the photos because they deserve their own shot on another day.
If you’ve had it, what were you doing in life when you celebrated your 30th birthday? Did you have a big 30th birthday party, and if so, please share about it. If you’ve gone back to school, please share.
