Happy 30th

I have been contemplating this upcoming birthday as if it were my own. Dave turned 30 this week and I can hardly believe it! Not because I can’t believe that he is 30, but because I can’t believe that I am married to someone that is 3o.

I mean 30 is like a whole ‘nuther category of life, stage of accomplishments, and wisdom, all of which I am not old enough to be associated with. Our age difference has never really made a difference, and of course still won’t, but with Dave entering into another decade it reminds me that when he was 15 and contemplating starting to drive and date I was 10 and not yet wearing a training bra.

….Anyways to celebrate the big day I made Dave a special birthday dinner.


I never set the table all pretty, so as you can imagine Dave was pretty surprised when he saw this.


I made one of his favorite dinners. Beef Pops courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. They are delicious, super easy, and allow me to use my parsley from my garden.


And of course there was cake. Dave loves this orange cake. He says it’s like biting into soft oranges.


He had great birthday and loved his dinner despite his recent sprained ankle.

I totally know what you mean about the age difference. Rich is 32!!!...turning 33 in June! It is crazy. I often think that when he was on his mission I was just starting to be interested in boys! Crazy!!! Your food looks yummy!
