Celebrations

Guess what?

Today's my birthday!

I have to brag on my husband for a moment. He's just too good to me. My darling husband woke me up with wonderful homemade muffins and a tall, cold smoothie, my bible, and a reading book, all arranged artfully on a tray so I didn't even have to get up. I didn't even know he knew how to cook muffins or make smoothies... yet they were **perfect**. We decided together back at his birthday that we wouldn't buy presents this year (we spent more than enough at Christmas), a request that he honored. Instead, he crafted a poem which he read to me while I was enjoying my breakfast. We're going to find a frame for it and hang it by my computer.

22 has been the best year of my life... so far. It's the first full year I spent married to my husband; the year I graduated college; the year of my first (hopefully!) international mission trip; the year of so many other wondeful things that I can't find a way to summarize them nicely. I can't wait to see what's in store for 23!

Happy Birthday! (belatedly!) It sounds like you had a wonderful day! We are just about one year apart; I'll be 24 in May. I hope this coming year is just as wonderful for you as last year was; as I trust it will be!

Happy Birthday!! 23! What a great year! Let's see, you are 7 years older than my daughter, Joanna, and only 18 years younger than me. But the time goes fast!
