enjoy the direction


It's my DH's birthday today...he's getting to the age where the added years are just not as exciting as when we began!  Those milestones are adding up and while the mind still frolics, the body is a whole 'nother story!  How does that happen?  So I thought I'd take a light-hearted approach and remind him not matter what road he's traveling...it always better to enjoy the journey!

This Artistic Outpost 'adventure' plate was the perfect choice.  I wanna always be as free as a dog with it's head out the window, feeling a breeze on my face!  I love you, my generous, kind, long-suffering husband!  You're still the one no matter how old you "B"!

Oh my gosh, this dog is awesome! Pairing him with the compass and the theme of adventure is such a great theme for birthdays of a certain, ahem, length. We are all getting there. Love, love that red and white scarf to finish it off. Another card and another story from your family's life. Gotta love that. More joy....

Awww, Susan, what a wonderful card for DH!! You know, isn't it wonderful to think that there was a time way back when, when all you wanted was to grow old together? And guess what...God blessed you and said OK! Rejoice my friend! It's a blessing to share the years with the one you love!
