Many Happy Returns

It’s his birthday…

But each year, I feel as if I’ve received the gift – having him in my life! 😀

My heart can’t help but cherish the day my soul mate arrived on earth.

This year is one of those “milestone” birthdays for Sir Beads.

How many candles? Well, let’s just say he’s close to retiring. Though to look at him, you might not believe it.

What’s a birthday without a favorite dinner?

The guy loves ribs so we went to a place that prepares them just right . . . and with plenty of napkins. 😉

Next, he chose something that is not traditionally a birthday dessert – strawberry shortcake! It was soooo good and the slivered almonds were a nice touch.

My birthday is just around the corner….

I may just have to go for the shortcake this time, too. 😀
