January 27th, 1997 My hubby :) Eighteen years ago today I started dating my hubby. We went to a Smashing Pumpkins concert. I wasn't really a fan of that music, but I was a fan of him.
January 27th every year! My neighbor :) We celebrate the birthday of our amazing neighbor (and friend). Sherie is the kind of neighbor you read about in books and see on TV. She delivered dinners when I delivered babies. She's there with a glass of wine when I have to whine. She brings my boys sweet treats for every holiday yet she is the sweet spot in our lives.
January 27th, 2012 Our niece :) Life is full of surprises. Some surprises have an immediate, gratifying effect and others unfold slowly and challenge those around you to learn in a way they never thought possible. Three years ago we expected our family to grow, but we all grew in ways we couldn't imagine. Gianna has taught those around her to set goals higher, dream bigger, and redefine expectations. Gianna has been a blessing to us all and we know the best is yet to come.
