Eye Candy Friday

I’m sharing this bouquet of peonies with you today for a very special reason. Today is my darling Dale’s birthday. And peonies are his favorite. I can’t even tell you how grateful I am to get to celebrate this birthday with him . . . I feel that way every year, truthfully . . . but it’s especially poignant this year when I think of what could have been. His trip around the sun since his last birthday has been an interesting one, that’s for certain.

I’d love it if you’d send Dale some birthday love in the comments! And I wish you a weekend full of love and celebrating, whatever you are doing.

  1. Happy birthday Dale. Whenever I think of your accident I think how clearly it shows the speed with which life can change with no warning and it reminds me to be grateful for every day. What lovely flowers! Enjoy.

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear Dale! I wish we could celebrate together with a few, cold and tasty Michigan brews — preferably while listening to a good local band (with maybe some singing on the way home). Someday, we’ll do that again! Enjoy your day! XOXO

  3. Happy Birthday Dale!! I hope your day is full of all the things you love the most! May this be the start of the best year yet!

  4. Happy, Happy Birthday, Dale! We’re all so glad you’re here and healing. I’ll be raising a glass to you this evening!

  5. Happy Birthday, Dale, and here’s to getting rid of the crutches or cane, and the boot!

  6. Happy Birthday to YOU Dale! Wishing you a fabulous day, an even better year and plenty of time with the ones you love!

  7. Happy Birthday, Dale! I hope your healing continues to go well and I wish you all the best for the coming year!

  8. Happy birthday, Dale! I knew you were a good man – and now the news that peonies are your favorite – such good taste!
    My grandmother’s entire driveway had its western edge lined with peonies. They were planted some distance back, but in full bloom almost brushed you as you got out of the car. I would have planted my own here, but Louisiana is too warm to grow them.
    I even loved the little ants that roam across the buds (once I learned that their activity is necessary to allow the peonie buds to open).

  9. A very happy birthday, Dale! I will lift my glass of wine to you tonight, and send all my best wishes to you for a rapid recovery. Peonies are my favorite, too.

  10. Oh dear Dale – I am so happy to be joining in with other readers of your lovely wife’s blog to send you the VERY BEST wishes for another (maybe not quite so interesting 😉 trip around the sun! Virtual hugs and love from Georgia!

  11. Happy birthday, Dale! You are obviously special to inspire so much love and affection from your lovely wife and family! Enjoy!

  12. Happy, happy birthday Dale. I hope this year is everything you wish for and a little bit more.

  13. Happy birthday Dale. May you continue to heal. May all your birthday wishes come true.

  14. I am WAAAYYY behind on reading blogs, so
