There have been a couple times over the last several years I haven't gotten to spend Chip's birthday with him. But in the past, I've missed his birthday because I'm away briefly for a conference, not because I'm actually living somewhere else. So even though I'll get to see him and celebrate with him this weekend, it's still different somehow. I've been thinking about him a lot today & how wonderful he is. Here's one of my favorite pictures of him from our trip this summer, eating in a little cafe in Edinburgh.
