Happy Birthday ~


Today is my sweetie's birthday.  He's been called a lot of things, but the one thing I've always refused to call him is my boyfriend.  I've always said I'm much too old to have a boyfriend.  Gentleman friend, yes.  Boyfriend, no.
We have been "dating" for almost 17 years.  Time sure flies when you are having fun :)


We joke that 6 years ago, he finally made a commitment.  Here is our commitment the day we got her.


And here is our Loocie today.  



We are all a little more grey . . . sigh.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Happy birthday, Fritz!! Geez .....he's so handsome Lauren..how wonderful that you have someone so special in your life...and you're really not too old to call him a "boyfriend"..I guess significant other is the term they use now! Hope you had fun in Milan yesterday...sounds like a great antique show! I love that little town.

Happy birthday to your man friend ( that's what I call my step- daughter's friend) cause he's hardly a boy! He's definitely a nice looking friend and no doubt that he's also nice! Seventeen years is longer than many marriages last ~ cheers to you both!
