for his birthday

The engineer just celebrated a pretty big birthday. No, he hasn't turned the big 3 0... not yet. He did, however, enjoy another once in a lifetime event. A once in a lifetime event that a lot of us will never celebrate. This year husband's birthday landed on 11.11.11. And as I said before, homage needed to be paid.

To commemorate this day, I asked our friends and family to contribute a list of 11 things that make the engineer #1. I told them that I would print these lists and present them to the man on his special day. The result was a book filled with warm wishes, inside jokes, a few jabs and a lot of love.

Around 11 that night, husband unwrapped his gift in front of a group of friends who had gathered to surprise him at a small hole in the wall donut shop. It was the perfect end to a perfect birthday.

Husband says it was the greatest gift ever.

I choose to believe him.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make husband's birthday so special! We are truly blessed to have such amazing friends and family in our lives.
