Today is my wife’s birthday. I have often spoken of her in my blog posts. I even raved about her on Mother’s Day. So today is another special day to celebrate all things Lee-Anne!
Every year my wife has her birthday on December 6th. It never changes. That makes it easy to remember. In the past I have done my best to show her how much I value her and how much I love her. From dinners to hand made gifts and everything outside that spectrum, here is a list of some of the more memorable birthdays I have tried to give her:
Last year I made her a gift of a record cut into the shape of an old 45 adapter to celebrate her turning 45. It was challenging to say the least, but I think she was happy with the results. Probably because I paid attention to one of her favorite things and found an old copy of “The Sound Of Music” at a thrift store to use.
Six years ago, I was getting a chip on the windshield of our minivan repaired on the morning of her birthday. I was browsing online while I waited and found an SUV for sale, so I went to look at it. Needless to say, my wife got a new car for her 40th Birthday that year. It was easy to get her to agree since she absolutely despised the minivan since we first purchased it years prior.Now, originally on her 40th Birthday, I had made her a hand drawn picture of her favorite place to view from when we visited Disneyland (we have a bench that we sit at every time we go there to watch the Pixar Parade). A new SUV was great, but the real gift was the one I made for her that year.
For her 35th birthday, I had us picked up in a limo and taken to the local airport. She took her first (and only) flying lesson that day. She flew us through the mountains and back to the coastline. Afterwards, the limo took us around to see the Christmas light displays.
Sharing experiences with my wife is what I really enjoy. I also love making her birthdays a little more special as each year passes. We have spent many years together now, and I really enjoy having fun with her.
Happy Birthday Lee-Anne! I hope you have another fantastic year! Love you.
