Happy Birthday Karel!!!

Happy 39th Birthday to Karel!!

I remember celebrating Karel's 30th birthday with him 9 years ago. We were newly dating and I threw him a surprise party with our Gearlink friends. He was shocked and speechless.

It seems like every year since then, we have been super busy with life, celebrating our birthdays between or at races. We don't do anything extravagant on our birthdays or give each other fancy gifts but it does give us a great excuse to get dressed up in "normal" clothes and to go out to a nice restaurant for dinner and dessert.

No matter how busy we are in life, I find it important to take a little time to remember the past and to get excited for the future.

With Karel....no day is boring in my life. 

Cheers to many more races (spectating and racing) together.  

Cheers to many more trips to Europe together and visiting your family. 

Cheers to many more years of loving and spoiling Campy.
(lots of years - like at least 50 more years)

Cheers to many more years of making decisions together. Like moving to Greenville, SC in May 2014!

Cheers to many more years of enjoying nature together. 

Cheers to  many more years of staying active together. 

Cheers to many more years of grocery shopping and eating yummy food together. 

Cheers to many more years of loving life and never wasting a day.
