The Love of my Life

It was a busy weekend.  Why?  Cause the love of my life turned 25.  We spent most of the weekend celebrating the momentous occasion.  Friday night we went to Tuscany for a romantic (albeit freezing) dinner.  Mushroom and truffle ravioli for me, meatloaf and mashed potatoes for the birthday boy.

Saturday we had pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.  And opened a few presents.  Then, because of an unexpected turn of events, we headed to the BYU vs. Utah game.  While the outcome of that game wasn't a very happy birthday surprise, it sure was fun to be there!

After the game we went and paid a little visit to the Parkinsons to share in a little birthday/anniversary fun.

Then Sunday night Dave cooked his own birthday dinner--he likes his own cooking better!  He made fabulous french onion soup and roast beef sandwiches, with a chocolate pecan pie for dessert.  All-in-all, I think he had a pretty good birthday.  I guess if you really want to know you'd have to ask him!

I am so grateful the Lord brought Dave and I together.  I am so grateful that Dave chose me.   I didn't even know that there was someone so right and perfect out there.   There couldn't be a better, more adoring father.  Dave is wise, loving, passionate, generous, driven, and just wonderful.  Love you, babe.
