Yes, today is the day we celebrate.

You know what today is?  How could you forget, I have written about it for weeks and months now.

Yes, today is the day the new owners sign papers to buy our home.

Yes, today is the day we leave our home for the last time.

Yes, today is the day we make our way to Pensacola, Florida.

Yes, today is the day we celebrate.


Today is much more than the end of a chapter and a start of a new one.

Today is not just a day to celebrate the ending and starting of chapters!

Most importantly, today is Gary’s Birthday!

Yes, today is the day we celebrate.

Yes, Gary is celebrating his birthday today.  Gary is 60 years old, or young depending on how you look at it.  Unfortunately, because of leaving our home of 13 ½ years and traveling to Pensacola, we are not having any type of party.  At the time this post is published we will be signing documents at the title company and then we will hit the road.  We will drive 288 miles to Monroe, Louisiana which should take us about 5 to 6 hours.  We mostly likely will stop several times which will add time to our trip.  Once we are in Monroe, we will stay in an RV park and rest for our next longer drive tomorrow.

So no party for Gary’s birthday today.  But maybe this weekend once we visit Gary’s mother and younger brother, we will have a party and celebrate then.  After all, he is only 60 once in his life.  A 60th birthday is a big deal – a major event.  Gary has lived a full life and has accomplished more in life than certainly many others.  If you have time, please read some posts I have written about him.

…and I trust him.

Meet My Husband

Gary is a wonderful person that puts up with me for reasons that are unknown to me – I am fortunate to have this person in my life.

So no birthday party today as we leave our home for the last time and make our way to Pensacola.  Maybe along the way to Monroe today, we will stop to eat and have some cake and/or ice cream.

Significant day today; the home changes ownership and Gary turns 60.

Yes, today is the day we celebrate.

Happy Birthday Gary,

Love you!

  1. Terry, please wish Gary a very happy birthday from me. I hope he has a really special day.
    Oh, and yes, cupcakes and ice-cream, or if not a cupcake, some form of cake is necessary for this great day. A birthday is not a birthday without a cake 🙂 Double celebrations 🙂
    All the very best on your drive to Florida, enjoy every moment my friend. Yay! today is the day 🙂

  5. I’m late on parade for reasons of my own travel …. The Bean and I did the 600 km from Paris on Wednesday night having been driven the 600 to Paris by the Brains who then flew to Boston and we were VERY tired for 24 hours but having recovered I cannot possibly let your momentous day of days pass without saying congratulations to you all and a belated happy birthday and many happy returns to Gary x
