I believe in being real in this space I call Hands Free Mama, so I give you my honesty in hopes that it makes a difference in how you gift the ones who mean the most this holiday season.
This is my story …
The month before my husband turned 40 years old, I started thinking about how we could celebrate it. Very early on, he made it abundantly clear that he did not want a surprise party, actually no party whatsoever.
He said he just wanted to spend time together as family.
Really? That’s it?
Well, I knew that I would be sorely letting him down if I did not make his 40th birthday somehow different than the 39 birthdays before.
Although I wanted to make it special, I really hoped to figure out something that didn’t require a lot of effort on my part.
(That’s the honesty I mentioned earlier.)
