Today my hubz turns 31, and for whatever silly reason he is not excited about it. He has been a little down in the dumps and I think that maybe the thought of both turning 31 and becoming a father all in the same year is making his head spin a little bit! So it is my goal to make today as AWESOME as possible for him! He woke up this morning to fresh coffee and a silly birthday message spelled out for him on my Light Bright (yes that's right bitches, a Light Bright! Scored it for $3 at a thrift shop!). I have a wonderful gift for him that I am SOOOOOOO excited to give him, and tonight we are going out for a fabulous sushi dinner, his favorite. So if you feel like it, can spare the time, wanna share some love, wish Ryan a Happy Birthday here. Last night the bug wished pappa an early happy bday. Ryan was lying with his head in my lap, face smooshed up against my belly, talking to the baby, when whooompf! He got a kick to the face, LOL! Of course at this point they are more pokes then kicks, but I think it was the bugs way of telling Daddy to snap out of his funk because he is AWESOME!

In crafty news I am currently working on some tattoo inspired embroidery pieces for Vagina Day, I mean Valentines Day. So keep your eyes open for a big shop update soon!

Happy Birthday Ryan. Hope you have a wonderful day. I was wondering why the sun was shining today....... 31 years ago a great person was born and he just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for being you.

January 26th, 1980 was the most meaningful day of my life. Carla is so right "the SON has shone on me" since then. I got to hug you and wish you Happy Birthday this morning but with all our crazy deadlines we've been working away in our separate offices since then. But my mind keeps straying to noises from you downstairs. All I can hope is that you realize what an incredible gift you've been in our life. One child, one incredible son and soon to be the most terrific father to a grandchild. WOW. Life is a blessing and you remind me of that everyday. I am so proud to be your Momma.

HBD2U Ryan!!! I heard you already got a kick to the face for your birthday; best gift ever I'm sure. Love you lots Cuz and miss you bunches. I'm so excited for you and for the newest addition to your beautiful family.

You are an amazing person & I am so lucky to have you in my family. You are going to be the best Dad ever to the bug (how could not be with the role models we had - Dad, Uncle Randy & Uncle John).

Don't worry because I totally get it....30 was easier because you were JUST out of your 20's. You think to yourself “I may be 30 but last week I was 29”. Turning 31 was much harder for me - I wasn't ready to be "in my 30's". I've had a whopping 2 mths to get used to it and it ain’t so bad once you get here :)

I am so happy for you and Kam and I want you to have the best birthday ever!

Hugs & Kisses

Look upon birthdays as very special days to mark the years you've been on earth, positively affecting a lot of people around you - a loving mom and dad, a beautiful wife, and many other kin and friends. This one is especially special as it will also mark the year you become a father for the first time! Happy, happy birthday Ryan from us both!

Happy Birthday Ryan! 31 is going to be such a remarkable year for you and Kami what an exciting adventure you two are embarking on! Birthdays are great moments to stop and think about where you are and what awesome things you want to accomplish in the future! Plus you get coffee in bed and an awesome light bright message too!

Hi Fasans;
I remember the day you were born here in KW.
Your Dad and I belonged to the Cambridge Wine club.......
And, as I recall, all the wine club celebrated your birth...
Hard to believe it was 31 years ago.
Hope your day is special
love from auntie Lola and Uncle Jim

Heh Ryan:
31 huh!? I was 72 last week... how do you think I felt?
You are just starting to come into your own... the privilege of working with your Mum is opening a whole new, exciting and creative chapter in your life!
To share your life with Kami and "The Bug" I'm sure is proving to be just as rewarding. Your gentleness, caring and compassionate nature will hold you in good stead as you continue to collect life's experiences during your enriching 30s'.
Stay on the path you are creating for yourself... it is solid and leads into the sunshine!
