As 2016 begins our family prepares for a full year of celebrations!
There will be bridal showers, baptisms, a daughter’s wedding, a golden birthday for me, and Cuppycake & I will celebrate 30 fun-filled years together.
And this is just in our immediate family of five! You cann0t imagine all the other hap-happiness that will be celebrated in our extended families as well!
Through all the party-planning to be done, surprisingly Cuppycake has become sentimental on me! It’s not uncommon, in the last several months, to receive an endearing photo instagrammed or emailed to me with a sweet or funny message.
I am loving his out-reaches to remind me just why & HOW we have thrived, (or is it survived??? Giggles.) happily together. And admittedly all of this has been great…until thesetypes of photos started showing up!!
Yes, I know I am about to enter the golden years with him, while celebrating 30 wonder-filled years together but seriously…WE ARE NOT READY FOR MATCHING JERSEYS (yet!)
I mean we are still living life ‘in color’ not black & white!
Plus we still have a hop, skip, and a 36-inch box jump left in us!! (With of course a lot of giddy-up and go behind it…or a tidge of liquid courage.)
“What is all of this about??” I queeried.
“Well, we ARE grand-parents now.” he reminds me. “Growing older together has officially become inevitable.”
He’s got me there.
And so I do what I usually do. I follow his lead, I trust his wisdom, as head of our home, and I become sentimental along with him.
I just haven’t broken it to him yet that we’ll be doing ALL of what growing older together entails….
