with my husbands birthday closely approaching,
i have his birthday memories on my mind.
husband and i met at southern utah university in january 1995.
we were officially dating by spring,
engaged in october,
and his first birthday that we celebrated together
was november 13th, 1995.
i gave him a pair of roller blades.
he had never roller bladed.
growing up on a ranch didn’t offer a lot of concrete…
such things like bike riding – roller blading – etc were not his forte’.
we spent many a evenings roller blading around the southern utah university campus. long story short, he never mastered rollerblading.
picture him knock-knee’d, arms waving,
constantly trying to avoid his next fall…
i burned thousands of calories, laughing at him.
he was twenty-five years old.
