It’s my husband Jim’s birthday. I decided the best gift for him today, besides a yummy Mexican dinner at Cantina Laredo, is a little “through the years” tribute to my man. I’m not trying to hit every dimension of our lives –that is too long for a blog. Here is just a sampling.
Jim’s birthday makes me think about our romantic dreams when we were young. We talked of growing old together and now, well, we are. One thing about aging that is certain: as we get closer to the end, we treasure every moment even more.
Just as I was preparing to insert the photos here, a song from Don Henley’s new album came up with these lyrics. So fitting:
A long long time ago when we were young and pretty
We ruled the world, we stopped the time
we knew it all, we owned this city
running with the crowd, carefree and proud I heard
Take a picture of this, take a picture of this.
With great love and devotion, this photo journey is for Jim:
And finally, I dedicate this song.
