Happy Birthday Luv!

I saw Jason across the room in May 2005. I was at church on a Saturday morning rehearsing for a drama performance. Jason had come to help the band set up. I said to myself... "That is the man I'm going to marry". I really did say that. No lie. :) I asked the guy I was in drama with if he knew him. He said, "Yeah, that's Jason. He's on the prayer team with my wife." I was like "what? the prayer team?" He told me that Jason had gone through a divorce and was really active in the church. My divorce had been final a couple of weeks. We saw each other twice over the next few months in passing, and then at the end of September, Jason caught me at a Wednesday night service and asked me out. Our first date was October 8, 2005. We were engaged a month and a half later. We were married February 14, 2006. We knew we were soul mates.

Casey and I are going to cook Jason dinner tonight. Casey got a new cooking game for her Nintendo DS, and that is where she found the recipe that she wants to cook. Unfortunately, Jason has to work, but hopefully he will be able to come home for dinner.... hopefully.

Jason, I love you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you all the happiness in the world on your 35th birthday. Wow.. you are such a baby. :)

Here is one of my favorite pictures of Jason that I took when we were in Venice:

That's a lovely story! I believe that when God sends someone your way, it's sure to be the perfect match, so why wait! You knew it and it paid off! Good for you!

I hope Jason's birthday is one of many more happy days together with you.

Happy Birthday to your hubby.

Very neat story... I love to hear how couples/spouses meet.

You two make me smile every time I read your posts about each other. It's so obvious you are a great match. Plus Jason has a special place in my heart for introducing us all to Charlie the Unicorn (now a fave in my family...we walk around quoting the silly thing). Happy birthday to your guy and a big thanks to him from your "cysters" for taking such good care of you!

Happy Birthday Jason!

Piper reminded me about charlie the unicorn. I made Matt watch it, and occasionally he'll do that really crazy voice and slowly start saying charrrlieee, chharrrliee. It's freaky! Thanks Jason.

Jason says "thank you" to everyone. Dinner was great! Jason was late, but it heated up nicely. Casey chose the entrees. We had pepper steak, zucchini au gratin, red potatoes and this wonderful sauce that went with the steak. We were going to make a chocolate ginger cake, but that will have to wait.. we didn't have time. :)
