Justin’s Birthday + July Highlights

JBdayJustin turned the big 2-8 this past weekend and to celebrate we basically ate all of his favorite foods in a 24 hour period (blueberry pancakes, bacon, donuts, Hungry Hobo, cake, and Pizza Hut) and boy was it all delicious. Simple tip: when you have no expendable cash for birthday presents, simply make a delicious breakfast in bed, bake a cake, write a sweet note, and partake in a favorite activity together (in this case: mountain biking and walking our pups). As we grow older we realize birthdays are about the experiences not the gifts! Happy Birthday Justin, my best friend and travel partner for life!
