It's hard to believe I've only known Kam six [it will officially be 6 years this May] of those twenty five years. Lord willing, maybe the day will come when we've known each other longer than we haven't. If my math is correct [which I say with relatively low confidence], that will be our 36th year of life, 14th year of marriage.

March 5, 2013. Happy Birthday Kam! We started the party [on March 4th] with a home-cooked birthday eve dinner.
|Garlic butter shrimp and broccoli with pan-fried orzo cakes.|
|Oreo Rice Crispy Treats. Sooooooo good!|
You may start to see a trend as this post goes along. [Namely, the trend that I automatically go the food route when trying to bless or give gifts to the people I love!]
The next day, his actual birthday, kicked off with breakfast in bed [with some of the best company ever].
|Why yes, I did try to write I <3 U in ketchup on his plate.|
Then, T came to visit! [Thanks for giving birth on March 5, 1988]
|Sorry T, this is the only documentation I have of your visit!|
An ominous orange and blue sunset loomed before us as we made the 45-minute trek down I-85. Foreshadowing? I think so...

It really was a blessing to be able to take this time with Kam. We love Haddon Pugh, but a free night every now and then isn't too shabby :)
Speaking of free nights, the grandparents get credit again for this one. The weekend after Kam's birthday, my mom and dad came to visit. Friday, Kam and I were able to have another birthday date night to celebrate.
I'm not sure how observant you were with the pictures above, but my outfit was one of my birthday presents to Kam. Crimson pants, houndstooth [sort of] shirt, black cardigan. [I know, right?] Strangely, I already had all of these things in my closet. This was originally intended to be my baseball game attire, but once I found out the low for that night was in the 30s, that plan changed. I decided to still follow through with the outfit for date night number two. [Don't worry, we went out to eat in Opelika!] I know you're all wondering [at least I would be], so I'll tell you where we ate :) Cock of the Walk [thank you, Restaurant.com gift certificate] and the Overall Company for dessert.
Happy Birthday, my love! Thanks for not needing much to make it a happy one.
