And happy birthday to my favorite guy in the world… I feel lucky every single day to have found you.
Tonight we’ll do a little bit of trick-or-treating and a whole lot of celebrating. We may have already had our night out (my big surprise — dinner, a hotel room, and a haunted pub crawl… terribly cheesy but also amazing… okay ya I’m a huge nerd) but tonight we’ll get to blow out candles and open presents, and come on… that’s the real fun of a birthday right?
(It’s possible that I am actually more excited than Mark for his present.)
What about all of you? Do you have any big plans for the night?
How do you know you live (kind of way out) in the country? You might find yourself shooting giant robots with pumpkins, or watching uncomfortably as your six year old maneuvers what looks like a tank with ease.
The idea of decorating for Halloween in shades of white has always appealed to me. I love white, and even more, I love anything unexpected. Anything I can do to put a new spin on an old tradition is good with me. How about you?
What’s your favorite holiday trend? Or would you rather stick to tradition?
Lately, my brain has taken to spontaneous combustion. I’ve forgotten the date, the time, what it is I’m even talking about in the middle of a sentence… at this point I think it’s safe to say that wedding brain has taken over.
The thing is that it’s not just a wedding I have to prepare for, it’s also the fact that I’m about to leave… for 3 weeks… right in the middle of a busy political season (to put it lightly) and right in the middle of the holidays…
So, that said, this morning I thought it was Tuesday.
But I suppose my recent bout of forgetfulness just emphasizes how badly I need a night out… and tonight I’m planning to do just that. My maid of honor has the whole evening planned and I can’t tell you how fantastic it feels to just be along for the ride. Whatever the stress that comes with these final few weeks I have to say… the one thing I’m feeling more than anything is thankful that I have such amazing people in my life.
… and happy birthday to my favorite guy!! (he was the little orange one on the left)
I love you more than I can say.
You are my ally, my accomplice, my mentor, and my best friend. You keep my feet on the ground… and you never let my dreams fall down to meet them. You know when to listen, and when maybe it’s better to ignore. You know when I need a hug — or a big bowl of ice cream — and you never stop making me smile. You never stop challenging me. And you never stop making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
