Today, June 27th, is my husband’s 31st Birthday! I have always thought that a person’s Birthday should be celebrated with great fanfare. Everyone deserves one day a year where their life is honored and they get to feel special. Since getting married, I have tried to make Lucas’ Birthdays magical — whether it be traveling somewhere fabulous or by surprising him with a fun party or thoughtful gift.
One of my favorite Birthday’s was his 27th. We had just gotten married and were unfortunately separated, as his visa had not come through yet. Thus, I was in Charlotte, NC and he was in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As his Birthday approached, I could not help but get sad knowing that we would be apart. I wanted to be with him so badly! A dear friend decided to gift me with a plane ticket to go and see him for his Birthday at the last minute. I decided to surprise him and not only that I had it filmed and photographed. It is a moment in our history together that I will relive in my mind over and over again.
I hope by watching this video that you feel inspired to make someone you know’s Birthday extra magical this year!
