Tomorrow is my husband's birthday. I was trying to think of a cute blog title and I kept remembering the nickname that my brother gave him before I even knew him. When Jonathan was a senior in high school, he got a new youth minister at his church. Jonathan really liked Anton, the last youth minister and thought that this new guy was kind of annoying.
So, he called him "Steve Cole, the fruit bowl".
I'm sure it was a term of endearment.
He brought "the fruit bowl" home one afternoon after church and this guy even helped me fix my computer.
11 years later, I'm married to that guy and he's still fixing everything that we break around the house.
I don't want to get too mushy on this blog. But, I'm amazed by all that he does and how well he does it. He's setting up for a Back to School night right now at Maggie's school. We'll join him after I pick up Maggie.
He's going camping this weekend and I'm afraid that because of our crazy week that we won't be able to truly celebrate him. He's not as big on birthdays as I am, but I think that we are going to take him out for breakfast before school tomorrow.
I love you, Steven, and I'm so glad that we get to celebrate you a little bit tomorrow.
P.S. I hope next year's blog has a big ol' picture of you and Patrick and Maggie!
