the big 25

A few weeks ago James turned the big two five. Since he has been my rock and has been so caring and loving, especially during this pregnancy, I wanted to do something special for him to say I love you back. His love language is gifts, so I created a day of gifts for him of little things that reminded me of him. I showed up at his work at 9am with his first gift, a Starbucks Vanilla Latte and blueberry muffin, and a large birthday bag of gifts in my other hand. He was a little embarrassed at first, I mean I guess your wife showing up with a huge bag of gifts on your birthday can be a little embarrassing! But he ended up loving opening a gift every hour.
And then the weekend following his birthday I had a game-themed party for him since he loves to play games. I don’t think he has ever turned down playing a board game with anyone, he loves them that much!
I even created snacks to go along with the theme – dominoes brownies, checkers rice crispy treats, and angry birds cupcakes. It was fun being creative and making snacks for everyone to enjoy.
I love you honey and am looking forward to this next year together! I can’t wait for you to teach our son how to have a tender heart for the Lord, seeking God’s wisdom over man’s. Our little boy is going to be one lucky kid to have a dad like you. And I am one blessed woman to be your partner and soul mate. I love you!
