Being Busy and Getting Older

The past week has been SO busy. Among many other things, I had a birthday! 

I turned 27 on the 29th and yes...ahem... that means I am yet again, one giant step closer to 30!

The day began with delightful birthday wishes from hubby and my 2 favorite little ladies. Noelle and Bella literally jumped into my room with huge grins and shouted, "Happy Birthday Mommy!" That was a priceless moment.

Later that day, Hubby came home from work with cheesecake and white roses in hand. Everyone ate cake and then Hubby and I were off to a Fred Hammond concert and dinner at a Thai restaurant! 

I received quite a few calls from friends and family and the day was very special. Perhaps one of the most special aspects was hubby writing a version of the What I Love poem for me:) 

Here it is:

I love the way you walked into english class when we were 14.

I love to see you go crazy over things that smell good. 

I love the way you relentlessly care for my children.

I love your creamed spinach. 

I love it how you celebrate Christmas earlier and earlier every year.

I love your big pretty smile. 

I love it how you always order food that I wished I'd ordered at a restaurant.

I love how you are passionate about family. 

I love to hear you pray. 

I love the way you love me.

I love loving you.

~Happy Birthday
