Wee Memories. We celebrated my husband's birthday this week. I made him a card of course. I wanted it to be somewhat funky and yet get the message across. I free hand cut a heart out of an old dictionary and attached one of those cool Tim Holtz keys to it with some awesome twine and used a computer generated sentiment and a tiny little dimensional heart. Then I doodled around the edges in Julie Bonner style. He loved it. He sees me making things for others all the time and I really feel that I need to make more little handmade and heartfelt expressions of love for him. He saves EVERYTHING I have ever given him. Don't you just love sentimental men? (sigh!)
We celebrated by taking the day off work (right in the middle of the work week....) and doing some of our favorite things....out to a simple, healthy breakfast, walking the Volusia County Farmer's/Flea Market and then we went into Orlando and he took me to an awesome scrapbook store and let me shop! He even found me cool stuff and encouraged me to keep buying. He's a definite keeper! Then I took him to 2 guitar shops and we actually found a couple of cool guitars that he would not mind adding to his collection. Now, just to find a way to afford them and that awesome entertainment center we found! We stopped for an early dinner at one of our favorite healthy salad bar places to eat -- Sweet Tomatoes.
Here's Dave enjoying his awesome pasta after polishing off a big bowl of Irish Potato and Leek soup. It was a wonderful day to celebrate a wonderful man....so glad you are my husband, honey. Here's to many, many more birthday celebrations with you!
