He's changed some since this picture, which was taken in 1969, but then so have I. Birthdays have a way of doing that to all of us. We've changed together, growing more alike over the years, more accepting - even more appreciative - of our differences, and deeper in love with each other. I've lived twice as long as Dan's wife as I did before we were married. His history is now my history. It's a beautiful thing!
There's not a big surprise party in the works this year. We're just looking forward to a quiet dinner together this weekend. But we've learned to treasure those quiet together-times.
