To Celebrate Twenty Eight


Brian is still deployed and it’s his 28th birthday today…
Normally, to celebrate his life, I would have planned an adventure for him but it’s a little hard to do that when you’re thousands of miles apart and one of you isn’t allowed to leave the base you’re stationed on. So this year I bought him what he asked for, two custom tailored suits and a subscription to the Dollar Shave Club, along with the promise for a couple dates out on the town to wear said suits when he returns home.
I have a hard time accepting the idea of Brian only getting gifts for his birthday so I decided to make a list of 28 new [and hopefully amazing] adventures to go on in the upcoming months to celebrate his birth throughout the year entire.
1. Hike to South Fork Falls
2. Backpacking trip
3. Bike the Stampede Trail
4. King salmon fishing   IMG_5796
