I love love love this picture. And for so many reasons. Let's start with that big smile on Kev's face. He is so happy, thrilled, excited to be retired. We had a great party and all night all he kept saying was"I'm retired...whatta you want to do tomorrow?" It was funny. But it's so awesome that he has finally reached this point. He's been waiting for this day to come and now it's here. 31 1/2 years is a long time and a great career, but definitely time for it to come to a close. Every summer had been getting harder and harder to deal with because it just seemed to get hotter each year. So no more carrying mail in over 100 degree weather. He is so happy, and that makes me happy.
The other thing I love in this picture is that cake. Can you believe it? That's a homemade cake. Everyone was taking pictures of it and thought it was so cool. And it was delicious too. I hated to cut it cause it was so awesome, but what was I gonna do with it if I saved it? Most likely I'd be the one to eat it all. But we did cut it and everyone got to enjoy it.
So as my title says... new adventures coming soon and they will be. Everyone was asking what I was going to do with Kev home with me all the time. I'm sure it'll be different but I also think it'll take both of us some time to actually realize that he won't be going back to work ever again. It's a great time in our lives.
