Happy Birthday to me!

Pecan-Crusted Pumpkin Pie, made by Julianne for my birthday!

For all of you who have wished me a Happy Birthday, I pass along a warm thanks. The past year has been a truly amazing year. I grew in a professional context, Julianne and I bought a rehabbed our first home together and I was blesses enough to be married to the love of my life.

In the words of Jack Murphy, the ring bearer in our wedding and my cousin, “my family is SO big now!” While he was commenting about the “in-law” additions to family that result from marriage, I tend to draw an even more profound conclusion about the impact that my extended network of family, friends and other contacts have on my life.

To each of you, I extend a profound thanks. Thanks for the love you express, the support you offer and the general kindness you all extend to me on a daily basis. For those of you who know me well this will not come as a surprise, but I grow increasingly sentimental. As a result I feel overwhelmed by the well wishes I’ve received today.

I sit on our couch this evening basking in the glow of the first fire that Julianne and I have had in our fireplace, anticipating the pecan-crusted pumpkin pie that Juli made for me.

I have been, and continue to be truly blessed.

Thanks again to everyone!

God Bless,
