grown-up hubby!

I'm Feeling: blessed
Background Noise: The Longest Time by Billy Joel

You may or may not be aware that today, March 3rd, is an extremely significant day. This day marks a total of 30 years that my husband Mark, has been living on this earth! At 4:44pm, on 3/3/1976 - the world welcomed Mark William Burley into its ranks. And he's done some pretty cool things so far!

- jump out of an airplane
- climb the stairs of the Eiffel Tower
- had the opportunity to kiss the Blarney Stone (but decided to pass for sanitary reasons)
- visit the Ukraine and Kosovo on a missions trip
- ski at Whistler, A-Basin, Jackson Hole, and a bajillion other places that I can't remember...
- stay (multiple times) in the HMFIC suite at the Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City
- graduate from the BEST school ever - Michigan State!
- snorkel in Hawaii, jet ski and parasail in Key West, water ski at Uncle Tom's Cabin, surf in Venice, CA
- play air hockey, ping pong, and foosball in his own basement
- visit friends all over the country - Florida, New York, New Orleans, California, Minnesota, the UP...
and most importantly...
- know and love our Lord Jesus!

Yer one cool cat, Mark B. - I hope that your middle - 30 years are even better than the first!!

Oh - and seriously - more than 2 people read my blog. Please fill out yesterday's census. And have a happy weekend!! Posted by Picasa

Happy Birthday, Mark! You and Katie are wonderful people. It's been such a joy to meet you both and get to know you over the years. (I sound like a parent) Anyway, hope you feel loved and appreciated today and this weekend.
