Preparing To Celebrate Elena’s Birthday

On January 21 we will have been in this house that Elena bought for ten years. We have developed some traditions in this household including one that a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label is always in the house. We also put a lot of effort into Elena’s birthday that comes on 24 January. On this day in 2001 we moved in together and started our life as a couple. One could say that Elena got meas a birthday gift one year! (Perhaps she has wanted to return hat gift a few times?) I always go out and buy balloons to celebrate her birthday, our anniversary and Valentine’s Day. I did this yesterday afternoon and had fun doing it. Elena came in late from work and was touched to see the balloons all over the living room.
