Soundtrack Friday

My husband turns 40 today. We've been together for 18 of those 40 years - not quite half his life. I love my husband. He's a wonderful man with many strengths. He can also be infuriating. Can't we all?

Today's Soundtrack Friday isn't about me. It's about him. My husband is complex yet simple. He has a hilarious sense of humor. He can think deeply and can also step back and see things from a broader perspective. He doesn't always have the best taste in clothes, movies or TV but I admire his willingness to try new things and to take my recommendations seriously.

We fell in love over a mutual admiration for Canadian prog rock group Rush. In some ways, Rush is the soundtrack of our life together. You name the song, I can tell you how it fits into our relationship. Scary, huh?

So, to my wonderful husband, today's Soundtrack Friday is all about Rush. I give you their hit single, a staple of concerts everywhere, Freewill. Babe, this one is for you!


  1. Happy birthday to the husband! I hope it's a great day for him and the beginning of his best year yet.

  2. Husband says, thank you! :)
