30 Years of Memories

(Um, doesn't Cory look SO MUCH like my girls in that last pic? Cailin comes to mind in particular with that one, but that's probably just because she's the closest to his age there).

So, as most of you know, Cory just turned 30. Sometimes I can't believe we're getting so old, but other times it's hard to believe that I've only known him fora little over 8 years. All I know for sure is that I sure do love the man I'm married to. He adds such a wonderful stability to my life, and is truly my best friend. I am so lucky.

When I was trying to figure out what to do for Cory's birthday (30 seems like a big number, deserves a good surprise, right?), at first I was at a loss, but then I saw a post on some blog (that I can't for the life of me find anymore) about a woman who made what she called a "real-life facebook wall" for her husband, by having friends and family send in pictures and messages for her husband, which she put up on their real wall. I pretty much just copied her idea, and I loved how it turned out.


(My first bunting, yay!)




The best part is, Cory actually loved it, too. He's not into presents or celebrations, really, so it was kind of a big deal when he admitted that this was a really cool present, and spent a long time staring at each picture and message. I'm so grateful he was born, and that he is mine for eternity.

Yay! I'm so excited that he liked it! I thought it sounded like a really fun idea and it turned out great. The fact that Cory said it was "really cool" is just perfect considering Cory doesn't get overly excited. I wish I'd been there to see his face!

Jessie - this is an EXCELLENT idea! I wish I'd thought of it for Richard's 30th. And yes, it's crazy how "grown up" (not old my friend) we are getting. Rich turned 32 this year.
