In addition to this being the weekly Friday Flower Fix, it's also a special dedication post to my husband, Marque (aka Mister M.)
Today, February 22nd, is Mister M's 41st birthday. Saying his age, and MINE, really puts in perspective how long we've been together. We started dating when we were 19 years old! Mister M. had literally turned 19, 2 months before we met back in 1986.
You guys, I have no words to explain how amazing this man is. And not to worry, I'm not gonna get all mushy on you here :-). But seriously, he is truly amazing. This man loves his family completely. And loves me and the kids unconditionally. Now, don't misunderstand...as amazing as I think he is, I know fully that he's not perfect. And the good thing about that is, he doesn't claim to be. But he does put his family first and all is right with the world when he's around. Marque is a great provider, a wonderful husband, an awesome father, a loving son, and a caring coach :-).
I tell him I love him all the time. But I think sometimes I neglect to tell him how much I appreciate him. And that I'm SO very proud of him. So, Marque, if you're reading this; honey, I appreciate you more than you'll ever know. And I wouldn't trade the life you're providing for me for the world....with your sexy self :-).
Happy Birthday, my love!!
And before I get to the FFF, I just have to share another picture of Mister M. The reason I love this picture so much is because THIS is how we spend a LOT of our time....
Laughing with eachother (I love the look on his face...as I'm sure I said something crazy, that obviously cracked me up). We have so much fun...even after spending half of our lives together. I just pray that we never get too old or too "grown up" to laugh together and enjoy one another. Again, happy birthday sweetie.
"We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh."
Ok, how bout some flowers! I chose these today because I think I'm about ready for Spring. I'm ready for the cold to go away. AND because, I think they're pretty :-).
Well, I don't think I have any earth shattering plans for the weekend. So I'm guessing it's gonna be a quiet one. However, tonight, for Mister M's birthday, we're going here for dinner. I even told him to give me his credit card when it came time to pay...that way it would look like I was treating HIM to dinner :-). Remember the look he gave me in the picture above? That's how he looked at me when I made that suggestion, lol.
Anyway, I hope ya'll have a great weekend. Toodles!!
