After the big festivities of my 30th birthday, I didn’t think 31 would amount to much, but thanks to my family and friends, I was proven wrong and had an awesome day.
My schedule had me starting my day bright and early, but Bethany woke up early and made me a special birthday breakfast of stuffed french toast.
We’re actually visiting Bethany’s family in Durango this week, which meant that I could be spoiled by going to one of my favorite places in Durango: Serious Texas BBQ.
My birthday evening kicked off with a fancy dinner at a great restaurant called Ken & Sue’s, where I was able to enjoy a great steak and a birthday cake martini.
But the ultimate end to my special day was brought to me by my lovely wife, who slaved through the day and made me an awesome cake! She was so clever that she actually incorporated my gift into the cake – I was completely surprised by both!
I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday, especially since one of our gifts came a little early – in the form of a new buyer for our house. We’re back under contract!
Also above all, I was touched by all of the family and friends who called me, texted me, Facebooked me, giving me warm birthday wishes! I am thankful to have all of you in my life! Here’s to making the next year better than the last!
