I love blogging for so many reasons.
One reason is for the ideas that we get to come across.
Last fall I read an idea on someones blog that I tucked away.
Of course now I can't remember which blog it was.
If you are reading this and it was your idea --- thank you -- I loved it.
The idea was to have a "birthday month" for your spouse. During that month you do things for them all month - do as many things as their birthday age.
Since Jason's birthday was the last day of Feb. it worked out real nice.
At the beginning of the month I put a sign on the door he comes in that said,
"It's Birthday Month! Be watching for 35 Birthday wishes."
Then throughout the month I gave him little birthday gifts.
It wasn't every day - just whenever.
Here's a couple examples . . .
- I bought his favorite drink that I rarely buy and stuck it in the fridge and
wrote "Happy Birthday" on it with a sharpie.
- While he was out of town I took down the Christmas lights (a first for me) and texted him a picture of it saying "Happy Birthday the lights are down."
- I wrote him special notes and put them in different places.
- I left a candy bar on his desk and said, "Here's a late night study snack, Happy Birthday."
I tried to mix it up.
It was fun.
I will say it was a bit challenging to come up with and do 35 of them.
You could do a "birthday week" and just do one a day.
I just liked the idea of mixing in things to do for him and things to give him.
It was fun to have a month where I thought so much about what things he likes or how I could help him.
It was fun.
We celebrated with a night out on his birthday with his brother's and their wives.
That was one of the gifts too.
It was a fun night.
