Yes, in our family, the celebration of New Year's Day takes a backseat to the more important celebration of Eric's birthday! Did you know that he was the 1976 New Year's Baby in Redwood City, California?
I've always known that Eric was quite the catch, but he proved himself over and over to us this last year. In the midst of his first year of teaching (which can be quite gruelling at any level!), he was there for me throughout my pregnancy with Will. He picked up the slack with Kate and the housework, he faithfully drove with me to all my medical appointments when I had complications in late-pregnancy, and he supported me throughout my c-section and recovery. He makes coffee and breakfast most mornings, takes Will so I can sleep in, and keeps on giving even though neither one of us gets enough alone time or couple time (does anyone want to come watch the kids for a week so we can go to a Caribbean island?). It's a privilege to serve God with someone of such high character and such willingness to follow God no matter the cost. I always wanted a purposeful and adventurous life--and being married to Eric has helped give me both!
Happy Birthday Honey!
