Sunday evening Jack called me downstairs and my entire family was there singing Happy Birthday. He had put out a bunch of snacks and a big chocolate cake. We ate and played board and card games until late and it was super special.
Monday was my birthday and I just wanted a super restful, relaxing day with nothing to do. I slept in while Jack took care of the kids and got Liv off to school. Had breakfast and then came down and opened up so many awesome, thoughtful gifts from the BEST husband. Hamilton sheet music, a big bound Hamilton photo book, a novel, the next season of a TV show I've been watching, a super cute scarf, some chambray joggers, a $50 Target gift card, and my big gift: a new Canon t6i with bag, lenses, accessories, cards, and Adobe Lightroom. I have been using a Nikon, but broke the body and the focus is off. I LOVE my Nikon, but wanted something a little less bells-and-whistles for more everyday use and need to send it in to get fixed anyway. I have had so much fun using the new Canon and it is such a great gift! We went to lunch, went shopping, and then I sat in bed and watched my new show and played with my camera, took a long hot bath, read, relaxed. That evening we ate an entire family sized pizza and watched Little Women. It was an amazing weekend and I woke up Tuesday bummed it was over. Bummed to be thirty...but grateful to be waking up to the products of my years and those who make my life so worth living and progressing through. Thanks babe for making all my birthdays and all my years just so golden.
