 A half moon tonight, making Rick's birthday extra special.  Next Friday will be my brother Ricky's birthday and the moon will be full.  Both the Ricks got some luna magic this year.
Jordan's birthday is on the 29.   Those three guys, every seven days, a birthday.

Jordan and I are making plans for a family celebration of birthdays.  He has chosen a menu of chili, hot dogs and spaghetti.  Perfect menu for guys right?  Except that we will include Breeze whose birthday was the 11th,  but she is a swimmer and burns carbs and calories like crazy, and she loved the menu too.  If the weather permits, smores for dessert.

Birthdays are meant to be celebrated, so eat what you want.   Sleep late, get up early, spend the day in jammies, or get all dressed up.  It is your day.  It is all about you.  Once a year, let the world know they are lucky you were born.  Twenty four hours just for you.

So Rick has had a nice dinner, cheesecake, a little wine and is now in his Alabama pj's ( he wore them watching the championship game, so now they are his lucky pj's)  I think his 24 hours has been interesting, fun, all that he expected and maybe more.  Happy Birthday Rick!  I love celebrating your birthday.


  1. A birthday celebration makes the whole year worthwhile. Jordan has the right idea of how to celebrate. And I really like the poem you gave Rick that he posted.

  2. You're right, birthdays are worth celebrating. For some reason, I am always low key on my birthday. I don't make much fuss about going all out to celebrate. Work seems to get in the way.
    Have a great weekend.
