A Happy Birthday, Indeed!

And I will have just that...

This weekend was more than I could have ever asked for in a birthday. My day started out with an Asian bath and 90 minute massage at the Kura Door (a holistic Japanese spa in the Aves). Seriously, I would have been happy at that...but then I remembered the fun shabby chic desk back at my apartment that Jimmy gifted me with a few days earlier. And after we got back from lunch, he gave me a copy of The Great Gatsby, his favorite book that I pretended to read in high school. I was showered with love and affection from every angle all day long!

But the best gift came the next day. We went to dinner at Pei Wei to celebrate my birthday and my brother-in-law's birthday. Dinner was great, and the company even better. We went to the mall and to Hobby Lobby and just wandered around for a few hours and decided to wander back home and take Winston for a walk and watch a movie. We walked up to the capitol like we usually do and made our way up the stairs to overlook the city. And then he pulled that little white box out of his pocket.

He said all the perfect words (and I nearly ruined the whole thing by telling him that he didn't need to do it now if he wasn't ready...what was I thinking?!) and helped me realize how special I am to him, and then dropped to one knee. It was perfect. I couldn't have painted a better birthday if I tried.

So now I get him - all of him. Forever. He and I, everyday. I. Can't. Wait.
