The long and short of it. The long being shorter than it should be.

It was my birthday earlier this month. I turned 34. It was definitely one of the better birthdays I've ever had. Not just cause of the awesome gift my wife-to-be has given me which is the apparatus that I am currently writing this blog on, but mainly cause of the fact that I am a lucky man to be loved by some amazing people in my life. First and foremost being my girl.

When one does take stock of their lives (usually around milestones such as birthdays) it's easy to be dismissive of the little things that count so much toward making your day just that much better. I have called to wake up my girlfriend everyday for the last 3 years without fail. And today, I looked at my clock several minutes before the alarm that I have set to remind me to caller her went off, and it dawned on me how giddy I get when I know I'm about to call her. Hell, sometimes I can't wait to do so, so I call those couple of minutes sooner just to talk to her.

I am such a child.

But I swear, I would never want to lose that side of me for the world.

So what's my promise for this year? Try not to overlook the little gifts of my life. Especially if it's an iPad.
