June 29th is Stuart's birthday.
He is finally 53.
I am 2 months older and he likes to remind me of the fact.
In honor of his birthday
 I am sharing one of my favorite stories ...
starring him.
He is a romantic.
He brings me wild flowers and leaves them on the table
for  me to find.
I often wake to find notes tucked in my coffee cup
or by my coffee pot.
He calls several times a day
to just say "hey and I love you."
He is a good man.
I decided to push for a little romance one day.
I asked him
"if you could go back in time what day would you go to?"
Now I expected his answer to be...
"oh the day we married"...
or "the day we had our first baby and became a family"
or even better
 " the first time I laid eyes on you" 
(actually gagging a little here on that one).
What I got was...
"I would go back to senior year,
the night we played Vandalia in football
blah blah blah yada yada yada"
I zoned out.
But seriously???
HS football.
I have left such an impact.
Apparently so has the birth of his children.
(However, I was sporting a pretty sweet cheer skirt that night...
so I'll give him that)
Happy Birthday Sweets.
I adore you.
You make me cackle and
you still bake my cookies. 
Life is great with you by my side.
