For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.

In honor of S.B.'s birthday today, I thought I would post one of my favorite photos of us together. Not because it reminds me of how much fun we have together, which of course it does, but because of something he's taught me about relationships: always, always, always be honest. It's important in all things, big and small. Here, it was important because, after climbing two pitches in a series of six to get up Devil's Tower, we were forced down because of rain. Once we were safely back on solid ground, neither of us had any problem whatsoever admitting our relief.

S.B. is the same age I am, minus four days. Which effectively makes him the younger man in this relationship. He also looks about ten years younger than he really is. Bonus.

Since S.B. is still out ensuring the continuance of the World As We Know It, we won't get to celebrate his birthday together, either. But that's okay, because every day with S.B. is just like a birthday.

You know, now that I take a closer look at this photo, it doesn't seem so much like we're having Whoo Hoo Party, Party! kind of fun, but, rather, more contemplative, if-I-get-out-of-this-with-all-limbs-intact-I-swear-I'll-get-right-with-God kind of fun.

That is so sweet! Bossy thinks every day with her husband is like a birthday too - she eats too much cake and screams in a helium voice.
