(43-94) Happy Birthday Luis!!!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful, husband Luis, who turned 40 today.   When I met Luis he had just turned 23; although he told me that he was 28; (which has to be a story for another time, since I wrote about it in my "Glamour magazine" essay.)   I can honestly say that I feel like Luis and I have grown up together over the past 17 years, and I'm so proud of the man that he's become.

This morning, Luis and I went to lunch at Talking Stick casino for our weekly date. We then went to the kid's school and participated in both Kelsie and Lyndzi's Harvest festival parties; and tonight we're going to The Shout House with some friends.  Luis contemplated taking a trip to Vegas for his birthday, but since we were just there 2 months ago; he decided to celebrate locally instead.

In honor of Luis and his 40th birthday, I'd like to share (in no particular order;) 40 of the reasons that I LOVE, ADORE and CHERISH Luis.
