For My Hunster…

Well….I don’t really call him hunster, I call him hunna.  And he calls me hunna.  And when the kids were toddlers, they called him hunna too.  Yes, that’s what the hubby and I call each other.  I’ve told the story before.  Last year….I think.

But today is my hunna’s birthday so I just had to bring up all this mushy, hunna business.  Why not.  Our life can be so serious, but even in the heat of disagreement (oh it’s so rare), we are still calling each other hunna.  It actually makes me laugh.

I think all of our friends are used to it, but maybe they think it’s weird.  It doesn’t really matter, we like it.  I wouldn’t think of calling him by his first name, that would be weird to me.

But anyway, I wanted to wish my fabulous, sweet, thoughtful, loving husband a very, happy, happy birthday.  Our life together has by far exceeded any expectations I could have ever dreamed.  We’ve been through so many changes and challenges and life seems to only get better.  This is our year to shine. 

I love you truly, whole-heartedly and devotedly.

Love always,

Your hunna

    Happy Birthday Mr. Hunna! I love the nickname thing. We are Mooch & Roo…long story. If he called me by my “real” name I would definitely think something was wrong!

  7. A good wife is a treasure to a man. Obviously he appreciates his hunna and makes her happy.

    A good marriage is a gift to the children. May they be blessed always in this.

    Happy Day to your hunna! I love that you call one another that, I think it’s great!

  10. Happy Birthday to your hunna, Cathy! We have one pet name that’s the same for both of us. We call each other it without even thinking. (Pet names are funny things, but very sweet and they mean the most to those of us who use them with each other. I don’t really care what others think, like you said. LOL) May it be an absolutely wonderful year for you all. :-)

    Hi Cathy… Hope your hunna has a great day… My husband and I call each other sweetie. When he calls me by my real name I think something is wrong too.
    I think in 25 years of marriage I can count on one hand how many times he has called me “Janine”.

  14. All the best for a very happy birthday to Mr. Noble Pig! Wishes coming your way for a wonderful day and a brilliant year ahead!

  15. Trisha 15
