Happy Birthday, Kevin!

Today is a very special day! Today is this handsome man’s birthday.


To this very special person in my life… I love you so much. You are the salt to my vinegar, the amaretto to my coffee, the sun to my moon, the umbrella to my rainy day, the navy to my pink, the marshmallow to my graham cracker, the caramel to my chocolate, the whip cream on my java chip frappacino. What I mean to say is that you make me better, without you the world would just not be the same. I love you.

We celebrated all day yesterday with the one thing that will steal Kevin’s heart most – delicious, from-the-heart food!

In the early evening I prepped a meal for sixteen complete with locavore farmer’s market goodies and fresh fish brought and caught by some of the best fishermen we know, our friends.

After much sleuthing and investigating we figured out whodunit.

Such a fun evening!

If you haven’t been to murder mystery party (this was a first time for all of us), I highly recommend it! It was so much fun to host. I embellished with mandatory mugshots and murder weapons to keep everyone in the spirit. And when everyone arrives to your home in their assigned costumes and in character, you know you’re in for a good night!

One final toast to the man I love most: Thank you for being who you are. Thank you for being a terrific father and a loving husband. Happy Birthday!

    I’d love to hear how you planned your dinner party! Was there a how-to that you followed? It looked like fun!

      Hi! Yes, we ended up borrowing a script from friends that held a similar party last year for their youth group. It takes a bit of time to get all of the clues sorted and characters figured out, but I think if we were to ever do one again it would be old hat! Easy to host. :)
