Paul spent the this past weekend spoiling me. We usually don’t take weekends off since they’re prime time for portrait sessions and weddings, but we planned in advance to have a whole weekend of fun and relaxation for my birthday. Even though I turned 24 yesterday, Paul brought out my inner-child-birthday-princess.
He designed this card with a timeline of the weekend activities he had planned! We were going to go paddle boarding but in leu of recent shark attacks here we postponed that adventure and enjoyed beach strolls and geocashing instead, we had icecream, we had Chipotle (burritos!!!), we went to a fantastic live comedy show (we’re both crazy about Mike Birbiglia!), Paul prepared a delicious home cooked tofu meal, and of course we had cake and more icecream. Family and friends called and I received beautiful packages from Oregon and Virginia.
My last birthday fell during our 6 months at the orphanage in Thailand so it was a very different but equally beautiful experience. I’m thankful for where we’ve been and where we’re headed and excited to see what 24 has in store! I feel ridiculously loved and eager to share that love tenfold. I feel so blessed to have this life and am so very thankful.
