Happy Birthday, Sweetie!

Today is my Dutch sweetie's birthday! Thirty-three years ago in the Netherlands, Niels was born on a beautiful June day. Today, unfortunately, I am unable to be with him because my cold has kept me here in Ohio. He's off in Canada visiting some friends who I know will take good care to celebrate his life with him today.


In 56 days, my Dutch sweetie becomes my handsome, almost-permanent American resident HUSBAND!!! Fifteen years ago I started praying for the husband God planned for me. Many people wondered over the years if my expectations were too high, but God crossed oceans to bring us together. Niels is all I asked for and more than I could have dreamed. Praise God!

I love you, Niels!

I am truly enjoying your blog! I totally loved your comments on weight Jenny, isnt it funny how when it comes to our own bodies we are so judgemental but if it is our dear friend we dont even see it! I think John and I will do the no spend Wednesday! Such a great idea just to keep aware of spending habits! Thank you for your wisdom!
