Celebrations--March 17: Slice of Life Challenge #SOLC 2015: 17/31

Happy Birthday to the Sweetest Guy I Know...


Tonight, a small

birthday,

came and went.

A small celebration--

with no fanfare,

no fireworks,

just a guy, my guy

 and me.


A million years ago,

when I was really uneasy...in conversations,

in restaurants,

we somehow

managed to find something

or two things

to say.



But now, we've lived a lifetime

of conversations,

and then some.



We've lived a lifetime of childish

college ways--

with a lifetime

of equally childish,

but enormously funny

friends.


We've had babies,

and those babies

became toddlers,

then teens.


And now they've

left the nest,

but we still celebrate

them.


We've celebrated

promotions, and houses,

and summer vacations.

We've crossed the country,

and traced our roots,

traveled to the Super Bowl

and the Shore.


And every year,

we savor this lifetime.


We love and laugh--

and remember--

and then, with even

more conversation,

we eat a great meal,

and celebrate

and love

some more!
