A Very Special Day

It's a doubly special day today, my brother and his family arrive from France later this evening, we last saw each other in 2008 and my sister and Mom last saw him in 2003!

But on a more personal note, my gorgeous husband has a very, very special birthday today!  It's the big ONE, the big 40!  So I hope you don't mind me dedicating this post to him (which he will read because I am going to e-mail him the link!  Ha ha!)

Happy Birthday Michael!  The only thing that is missing is, well....YOU!  There you are in Houston and here we are in South Africa!  Thank goodness we do get you back on Friday and we can celebrate then!  But I really just want to say that I feel like the luckiest person alive, you turned 40 on my watch!  Maybe, just maybe, if longevity and good health plays it's part, in another 40 years we can celebrate another big number...however, that would make  ME very, VERY old!  But I don't care, as long as we are together and healthy!

Ok babes, this card is for you:

And yes, it is just a number, and I have stopped worrying about numbers quite some time ago!  I love you!
