I could write a novel about all the wonderful little things that happened this week. It was that good. Do you ever have weeks where you almost burst into tears because you realize all the goodness God has surrounded you with?? That was this week for me.
Every day this week, these ranunculus have been making me grin from ear to ear. Ranunculus are my very favorite flower and I literally squeaked when I spotted them at Foodland last weekend.
I love how the bright orange petals go with the teal glass of this vase I thrifted recently.
(PS. These colors might be making an appearance in a certain little boy's nursery!)
I had a pretty awesome birthday on Monday. It was the first birthday I've ever spent with Chris and we definitely made up for lost time. The past 5 years, we've either been abroad (me in Mexico, him in the Dominican Republic), in school or Chris has been deployed, so spending this birthday together after finding out we're having a little boy was seriously perfect.
I've been wanting a wafflemaker for forever. Chris surprised me with breakfast in be and when I saw that waffle on the plate I said "Chris, that's a waffle!! A WAFFLE!!"
I was a bit excited.
I also got to spend the day with my sweet friend Krynn-- we got crepes for lunch and shopped for our babies while slurping chocolate ice cream.
For dinner, Chris and I packed a picnic and went to our favorite lagoon spot to chow down on artisan bread, brie, olives, coppa and sparkling lemonade. I literally has tears in my eyes as Chris and I sat on that red blanket together. Blessed beyond measure.
See how my birthday revolved around food??
