Happy Birthday to my dear and darling Viet!
As an over-celebrator, it took me a while to learn that it's important to celebrate people the way that they wish to celebrated instead of celebrating them the way you wish to be celebrated. The old me would have thrown Viet a huge surprise party with lots of fanfare because that's exactly the sorta thing I would love.
That seems simple enough. But I swear, for me at least, sometimes it's the hardest thing to learn and relearn that he and I do not want/need the same things.
Keeping my mind on wanting to do something specifically that Viet would love, I devised a plan to kidnap him from work, or really just to keep him from going to work (I asked his boss for permission of course).
Viet has the whole day uninterrupted to play video games. Yep.
That's right–8 hours of quality video game time. And I got him some of his favorite snacks to fuel the video gaming:
Check out Viet's 32nd year:
Isn't he the handomest?
Happy Birthday B. I can't wait to become your wife for life and to make 33 a year to remember!
next up: one more birthday to celebrate!
