  • The Mr. Turns 40: Contemplating the Year

    (originally pubished on November 22, 2012)

    Today is the Mr.'s 40th birthday. And he gets to share his special day with a little thing I like to call "Thanksgiving." Do not worry about him. We have a cool birthday trip planned for next week that involves a Caribbean beach and daiquiris!

    As I did last year, I'm sharing a few shots I've taken of him looking out at the world. From the back, as usual.

  • The Mr. Contemplates the World, another year

    (originally published on November 19, 2013)

    Even though the Mr. doesn't celebrate his birthday until later this week, I'm posting his annual birthday post now since we'll be out of town. I am grateful to be able to share so many wonderful adventures with him -- we've had a fun year! Happiest of happy birthdays to you, honey! Can't wait to see what the next year will bring!

  • The Mr. Contemplates the World: 2014

    (originally published on November 22, 2014)

    So you know how, on the Mr.'s birthday, I post photos I've taken of him over the course of the year from a specific angle? Well, it's that time of year again! I have to admit I have been delinquent in capturing these moments (I blame that furry little Stephen who seems to be in every photo I take these days.) Happy Birthday, honey! Here's to another year of adventure!

    (originally published on November 22, 2011)

    Today is the Mr.'s birthday. For years I've been taking photos of him gazing out at the world (usually followed by an irritated look thrown my way.) Below is my collection, which I think is pretty fun. Happy Birthday, Mr.!
