Happy Birthday, Husband!

Greg is 48 today. He is a magnificent man. Our lives are happy and full.

Today our oldest made us breakfast and while Greg and I continued our Mad Man marathon. We started watching the show this year, and a friend has loaned us Seasons One and Two DVDs.

Greg went to the 11 a.m. Mass; I will take the boys to the 8 p.m. Mass. When he returned, we kept up our marathon.

Midafternoon, he and I headed the gleaming corporate offices of Dow Jones in Monmouth Junction, NJ, where Greg picked up an award from the New Jersey chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. A World Trade Center survivor, Greg won a first-place prize in the essay category on his piece on life after 9/11.

We are home now. I am grading year-end papers and he is changing out of his suit and into sweats and a tee-shirt. He is heading out with our younger son to a local park, where he will coach a middle school basketball league he started a few years ago.

What a busy and blessed life I get to share with this fine man.
