Happy birthday to a dear friend
Did you go somewhere special over the weekend?
Did you celebrate an accomplishment, milestone or the mere existence of your loved ones?
That’s what my weekend was all about – eating, drinking, laughing, loving and generally basking in the presence of one of my favorite people in the world.
My best friend Kenton turns 27 today.
That fact is hard to believe, considering I met him nearly two decades ago, on the set of a children’s theater production in Beatrice, Nebraska. Over the years, we’ve been through so much – as geeky kids, as wayward adolescents, as roommates and now, as long-distance friends.
Scratch that friend part. Kenton is family – not by blood but by choice.
Happy birthday, brother! I love you, and so do all of your dog nephews.
In fact, Scooby has a special message for you on this big day:
Who’s part of your chosen family?
Come back tomorrow to learn about Remedy, the local restaurant I insisted on as the setting for Kenton’s birthday dinner.
