I’m a bit late getting to this. But Julie had an awesome birthday. It included breakfast at a little diner on Capitol Hill, some presents, and the traditional fajita dinner (Julie’s mom made her fajitas on her bday every year since she can remember so I am doing my best to keep the tradition alive. Julie usually makes herself a strawberry pie (I can’t even help with that part…it is her thing), but she couldn’t find any Danish Dessert (which apparently is THE only option), so she made a raspberry cheesecake instead which was pretty tasty. The funniest part of the day was when I gave her her presents. I was looking for a box out in the recycling and I found a laptop computer box that someone had just thrown away. So I put Julie’s presents inside of it to throw her off. It was still too light, so I wrapped my laptop up and put it inside so it weighed just right. Anyway, she got really confused and then the look like “why in the world would would you buy this” she finally figured out that is was actually my computer and then found her presents below in the box. Julie is really fun to try to trick, not sure how much she likes it, but I get a kick out of it.

Julie rocks. She is just an amazing girl. Those kids at the hospital are so lucky to have the world’s best nurse at their service. I can already tell that she is making their lives brighter every day. I wish I could be a fly on the wall and watch her work her magic. I will have to dress up like a doctor or even better, a male nurse someday and shadow her. Julie makes me so happy. She’s willing to push herself and try new things and learn. I love that so much about her.  I am lucky to call her my wife. Happy Birthday again Julie!

b: I think we need a walk-through of your apartment. Especially since I'm moving so I get to rearrange!

I just love that splash of color that Julie adds to everything she does! Just look through those pictures one more time and see what I mean...even the puzzled look has a fun "color"!

Happy birthday again Julie!
