thirty minus one

the countdown is on. 365 days before ryan's funeral (355 as of today). we will be celebrating the passing of his youth next february 14th, so he better make this year a good one.

29 reasons leah loves ryan (ryan laughed out loud at "he wipes my bum") hung on the kitchen cupboard:
the cake {pink at his request...it's cherry}:the dinner {had to put a vday spin on it, right!?}: the man {at prom 2010 with his hot, hot date...hours before 30-1}:the man {the day of}. he shares his big day with the day of love and this year he shared it with the day of rest, so it wasn't too wild. i gave leah and ryan stacking blocks so they can play together. i'm so smart.

30 was one of my worst birthdays. All I can say is that it gets better from there. Life is good.
