Martha+Tom

Happy Birthday Tom

This time last year  we’d just gotten married and returned from our honeymoon to Portland, Oregon. A few days after our return to Minneapolis, Tom ran his first marathon. This weekend we had a great time spectating the marathon by bike, enjoying the warm weather and the fall colors lining the city streets. Tom rounded off Sunday by bottling his second batch of home-brewed beer. But TODAY is the big day! Happy Birthday, Tom. You continue to be my favorite travel companion, dining partner, and my official biking and skiing coach. You are the most talented, disciplined, and kind (readers feel free to add your own adjectives in the comments) person I know.

    What, no 2011 marathon!

    Lately it seems like Tom would rather ride 100 miles on his Trucker than run 26.2. But after watching the runners on Sunday he had quite the glint in his eye!

    What a nice homage to Tom Nehil, a world-class fella and cuñado, un verdadero tío guay. :-) Feliz cumple, Tomás!!

    And in particular, he has not become one of those ‘piast guys’!

    Ah! Tom Nehil, you are an amazing son-in-law. Bless you.

    Sweet post Martha! Glad he was outed from his facebook-hiding ways.

    Heartwarming to see that boy so appreciated, Martha!

    OMG, this is what happens when I’m left to my own inadequate Google calendar (now fixed). Happy birthday, Tom!

    Me ha recordado a los vasos que nos dio mi madre cuando fuimos al Monasterio de Yuste. Feliz cumple!!
