FO: Birthday boy socks

Today is Dave's birthday. And there is indeed a pair of birthday socks ready for him to unwrap!
I finished them up on Monday, as promised, with plenty of time to spare for the big day. (I also found a couple of cool rock t-shirts to wrap up with them). Later I'll be making cupcakes, and figuring out something special for dinner.

It's a big, round birthday for him (I'm not allowed to say the number, but we met 14 years ago and he was 26, so you can do the math). I'm only a few years behind him. It's hard to believe that he's anywhere near that number.
Most days we still feel like those crazy 20-something kids who met online and fell in love after just one date.

Happy Birthday, babe! Here's to at least 40 more!

No way....neither of you can be that old. Oh, well. 40 is the new 20 I suppose and I hope 60 is the new 40 although I am getting pretty darn close to....argh..70. Ugh.
Anyways..congrats on the sock finish. I knew you could do it!

Good looking socks, and here's to another 40 or more years of love and togetherness!

They're very handsome socks! And Dave should save his angst for a decade. Ask me how I know...

I knew you could do it! And they look fabulous! Wrapping them up in a rock shirt is brilliant - whether it's music or actual rocks. I might have to use some Metallica or local radio station ones for my partner in crimes birthday. Brilliant.

The love and effort into those socks I understand why looking at that photo of you two. I hate to be super corny, but aww. It's really sweet and cute.

I met my husband around the same time as you two in our lives. We look back and are often surprised at how fast and all that jazz. But we've grown up together and continue to enjoy each other's company. Seeing you two at it is just as inspiring for me. Wishing you many more years of happy together. All the best! Happy Birthday to Dave!

Happy Birthday to the man! I knew you could finish the socks. 40 isn't anything! I am starting the slide down the hill to 60. Now that I really can't believe!

You made it!!! Dave's socks look GREAT!

40 isn't so bad ---- I'm probably the oldest one around here, heading towards 61! LOL
