This past weekend we celebrated my beautiful husband turning the BIG 40! We are in the back center of this picture surrounded by the friends we cherish the most.  I threw a huge surpirse party and almost pulled it off until one of our longtime friends walked right in front of us parking the car outside of the venue. It was a hilarious moment actually because my husband said, “Was that Nelie I just saw?” Nelie lives almost 2 hours a way. I said, “Yep! SURPRISE!”  We laughed and walked in hand in hand into the restaurant where my husband was overwhelmed with a BIG “SURPRISE” from friends and family. We toasted the night away. What a blessing it has been to have this man in my life for the past 17 years. Here is to the next 40 years babe!
