Guess what day it is!

It’s the one day a year, where I get to be mushy – Caitlin’s birthday!  Like me, Caitlin isn’t into big celebrations; she prefers smaller, more intimate events. She does however like to be reminded when her birthday is coming up, and just mentioning it causes her face to light up. Normally, we would use this occasion to plan a trip away and simultaneously escape the cold weather in February.  This year because of my new job, the logistics just didn’t work out.  We even came close to booking a short trip to Milan but had to cancel it at the last minute. Instead, we are home this week, just in time for the deep freeze. I know she is not expecting a large display, but she deserves a thoughtful one at least.  Caitlin is always thinking about me – making sure I’m presentable, fed, and ready for anything. She’s one of the strongest people I know, and among the long list of her super-powers are:

  • her impeccable memory,
  • her appetite,
  • the speed with which she reads books,
  • her ability to win every argument,
  • and her being the best all-around wife anyone can ask for.

With that being said, I’ll leave you all with the baby picture displaying Caitlin’s trademark face. Its the face that motivates me, and keeps me in line. Love you sweetie, happy birthday!

Happy Birthday to My Wonderful Husband

Thirty three years ago today, Fausto was born.  The thing is, he doesn’t like to celebrate his birthday.  In fact, he absolutely hates being in the spotlight. So usually, we avoid the typical birthday party and choose to travel instead.  This year, we are getting ready for our trip to Australia coming up next week, so we won’t be having a big celebration either. Since I am away on business and can’t be there to wish him a happy birthday when he wakes up, I want him to know that he is the most amazing husband.  We definitely have our ups and downs, but he has always been there for me. I know I am so lucky to have him in my life.  Before I get any sappier, here are a few adorable pictures of Fausto.  Now who doesn’t love that face?
