Happy Birthday TBHITW. Our first without each other.

I remember:

When we were dating we spent your birthday with an incredible dinner out in "the city" (that's NY for anyone who lives outside of the NE) and then running in the "Firecracker Four Miler" the next day.

I remember instituting "Birthday Week" once we were married. Birthday week meant every day for a week a special something every day. Perhaps it was a croissant for breakfast, or a card secretly tucked into a briefcase or a favorite meal - maybe even just a cookie - just for you, but a special small remembrance of a life that everyone wanted to celebrate. Especially me. Because I loved you. Because I wanted to celebrate the you that made you you.

Tonight I will pour two glasses of wine. One for you and one for me. Sleep well love and Happy Birthday.

Last year on his birthday.
