To My Husband, On His Birthday

March 10, 2017 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

Lately I’ve been eyeing 50 as the age when I for sure have to start acting like an adult. And as graphic design and parent blogging are mostly a young person’s game, I dread my half-century birthday (which is still a couple years away, thank you) on multiple levels.

My husband, however, has never looked or felt better in this, his 50th year. He’s kicking ass at work, lost a bunch of weight, and has some great friends he gets to watch Caps games with. I couldn’t be happier for or prouder of him… while also grumbling jealously at his non-thinning hair and endless energy. 😠

We celebrated Nick’s 50th birthday recently, with a big shindig at our new digs, complete with catered BBQ, tons of booze, and a wonderful representation of friends and colleagues from across his five decades. And as this was a big milestone, I pulled out all the creative husband stops. First, with a custom coaster I designed, playing off his love of bourbon:

And then with a video we surprised him with during the party. I reached out to friends and family to record a brief video sharing something they love about Nick — and the response was amazing:

In case it’s not clear, many of those near the end are Italian relatives (who live in Italy) who sent in messages — much to the surprise and pleasure of the birthday boy. There are a lot of people who love my husband, which serves to remind me how lucky I am to share my life with him.

As I said in my message (if you made it that far), I can’t imagine what my life would be without him. 👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨
