It’s that time of the year, again! That man who lights up my life and yours is turning 29 again!
Last year we celebrated with big news and a secret. This year we’re celebrating on the precipice of changes, full of anticipation.
Birthdays can be a really conflicted time in our house. Winter sucks, and we feel lonely. We miss the days of housemates around the wood stove, of Sunday potluck brunches.
Those of you who know Carlos well know that there is one thing he holds closest to his heart. Carlos loves his people. He loves his little jerk of a baby, and his family, and the people who make him think and laugh.
So today, on his n+29th birthday, I’d like you to help me out with something, please. Tell him something funny. Tell him the story of something ridiculous you did together. Thank him for saying something meaningful to you. Just send him a word to say “happy birthday, we’re glad you’re here.”
Do it in whatever way makes sense for you, but please, DO IT. His beautiful beard face needs to hear from you. If you don’t know how to contact him, you can email his first name at grumpypie.com.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
