Happy Birthday & Anniversary To My Wife Heidi

Some of my colleagues veer away from shining a glimmer of light into their personal lives, even with regards to the more mundane topics of our day-to-day lives for the sake of “professionalism” … I disagree. There are some topics of comfort which fulfill us and make us whole that make for a genuine perspective on what drives us and makes us succeed. The topic I take pleasure in celebrating publicly is none other than my lovely Finnish wife Heidi Marika Mendoza.

Today at the Mendoza homestead along the snowy foothills of Castle Rock, Colorado, we will be celebrating BOTH her birthday and our 6th Wedding Anniversary.

Mysteriously, we are celebrating her 21st birthday for another consecutive year … but I digress. 🙂

She has given me two beautiful children, my handsome and talented son, Valentino, and my adorable, nearly 8 month old baby girl, Siena Blue. Being the wife of a recruiter, a blogger, and Shally’s Partner at JobMachine is no easy task. Putting up with the late nights at my office and picking up my clothes at the corner of the room (I compartmentalize you see) every morning is not something I often take the opportunity to appreciate … so she reminds me too often. That being said:

Thank you Heidi for being a big part of my life and success. Happy Birthday and Happy Wedding Anniversary on this tenth day of January.

Love You

    My darling, darling husband,

    Even though you very often get confused between the closet and the bedroom floor as the place for your clothes, I still thank God for the day when I made the decision to travel 7,000 miles to be with you. Best decision I’ve ever made.

    I love you very, very much 🙂

    Although I’ve never met you, Dave has spoken glowingly about you to me numerous times. There is little question that he married much better than you. 🙂

    Dave & Heidi,

    With much gratitude and admiration I wish you two the best each and every day! Happy 21st (again) Heidi, and Happy Anniversary to you both.

    Dave, you should really pick up after yourself; thats how clothing “accidently” gets shunk in the wash.

    After Steve Rothberg pointed out that Dave married much better than Heidi did… my comment was:

    I second that, Heidi is HOT!…

    Oh no, idid I just write that?!?!? Oh, it’s OK, my wife reads my blog, but not this one… whew, that was close.
