32 Reasons

Yesterday was Terrell's 32nd birthday and we had a really fun day celebrating. We started the day with cinnamon rolls and singing Happy Birthday to daddy, then I picked Garrison up early from school so we could all enjoy a family date for lunch. After Terrell got home from work we gave him his presents and then waited for my mom to come over so we could enjoy a date night by ourselves.

Other than me being sick, which put a total damper on things, this was my favorite part of the day...I got to get away for the evening and spend time alone with my favorite person. We talked, we ate good food, we talked some more, we laughed, we ate dessert... it was a great night. And, we had the night off from bath and bedtime... the craziest, most exhausting part of our day! The timing worked out really good with me feeling so crummy. Terrell made sure I went to bed early and has been the best nurse. I love and appreciate him more than he knows! Which is what made me decide to do a little birthday list for him... of reasons I love him and am thankful for the day he was born. =)
