Visions of December dance in my head

A December filled with
Christmas parades, parties, crafting, handmade Christmas pj's,
baking and a whole lot of holiday cheer.

How old am I?

Today is David's birthday. While he was at work, the kids and I made his traditional birthday cupcakes. With limited decorating supplies and time, we settled on writing Happy Birthday.
For the 3 cupcakes left we made a sugary heart (because we love him so much), a 3 and a 5 (for 35, his age). I won't lie I had to think for a minute about how old he actually is. You see, I can never remember how old I am, it takes too much effort to remember such trivial information. All I do know is that I am a year younger :)
After thinking about it, I decided that he was turning 35 today and I felt pretty confident and proud to come up with that number.

aren't these cupcakes a masterpiece
really not my finest work

My parents stopped by to drop off a birthday gift, while we walked them out David pulled in the driveway. We all ducked behind my car, although I'm sure he had already seen us but the kids thought this was fun. When he got out of his truck we jumped out and sang Happy Birthday, really loud!

The kids were so excited to show off the cupcakes, they led him in the house. I ran ahead so I could snap that perfect birthday surprise picture.

Here he is, smiles and all the surprise to see that BIG 35

Literally, as I snapped the pic he laughed and said they look great but I'm Not 35.
As I wrinkled my forehead in deep thought, I said Yes you are because I'm 34.
Noooo, your 32 he said. I said, I wish but I'm pretty sure I'm 34 and that means you are turning 35.
He actually grabbed a calculator to settle the dispute. Looking at the answer in disbelief he said "Man, I'm getting old".

Happy Birthday, Honey
I love you no matter how old you are

on a side note we also learned that we have been together for 16 years!
This revelation came as we talked about how old we are now and were when we started dating.
To top that we've known each other for 20 years, Now that is Crazy

Like I said I don't keep track of these kinds of things. So much so that we don't celebrate anniversaries. That's how we both can be truly shocked by the revelations of tonight.
Before another birthday, sixteen or twenty years passes without us noticing, maybe we should sit back and reflect on the things that have brought us to where we are now.

but not today, I'm a live in the moment kinda person
I'll save that for... Tomorrow
