So, this month, I turned another year older.
Of course, this birthday was super special because I had a precious little boy to snuggle all day (although to be completely transparent, the boy was quite a grump on my birthday, but I still managed a snuggle or two).
Michael also fed my insatiable book habit with six new books. Two of them aren’t showing in the picture below because they are preorders that will come out in September and October (The new Deborah Harkness book and the new Ransom Riggs book).
And then, Michael came home early on my birthday, and I went out alone to get my nails done. I didn’t take any pictures because I was seriously just enjoying the moment. I got a package deal that included an amazing neck massage with the manicure. Simply divine.
And then last weekend, Michael’s coworker watched Sam while we went to dinner. It was the first babysitting experience outside of family and, honestly, it was wonderful. Michael and I ate steak and had dessert. And we ordered things on Amazon for Sam from our phones. Ok, so we were still thinking about him and our conversation was all about him, but baby steps, right?
Overall, I would say this was a pretty amazing birthday. I’m so grateful for this last year, and I look forward to the adventures this next year will bring!
