Birthday Boy

 Joel turned 29 yesterday! We kicked off the last year of his twenties with a romantic Italian dinner, a tasty Susie Cake and party balloons. (which if you haven't heard about the national helium deficiency, balloons are a luxury these days, so enjoy them while they last). It was pretty low key this year, since it's been a busy month with Costa Rica and then our Anniversary next week. I told Joel I would go big for his 30th! The pressure is on to live up and soak up his last year of the twenties, but everyone says the thirties are even better...


I couldn't love this husband of mine more. 
Happy Birthday to my best friend! So grateful I get to grow old with him xo

  4. helium crisis is over thanks to praxair buying up all the helium mines to begin mining again. there wasnt really ever a shortage, there is plenty there, but when the cold war began the government took over all the helium mining & a number of years ago they just stopped (cold war was over) & weve been using up our stock pile in tx ever since. when it started to get depleted, it seemed like we were going to run out & the only businesses that would be able to receive helium would be ones w/ government contracts, but did you know that ever MRI machine in the world uses helium? did you know that all manufacturing businesses use helium (like my husbands 45 million dollar a yr business)? if the world ever truly does run out of helium (which we wont) the world would be screwed. so it just took a private business like praxair to purchase the mines from the government & begin again. it was costly for them (or so our rep tells us), but now they own the monopoly & unlike the government, gases are their business so they wont get bored one day & just decide to quit mining.
