"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES
Happy Tuesday, m' dears! We celebrated my 31st birthday and Tripp's 13th birthday last Saturday. The celebration started off with a bang when Flyboy presented me with a candlelit donut that morning. Somebody knows my love language is SUGAR (and snazzy flats)!!! Be still my heart. Then, hours later, the two of us realized we must be getting REEEEEEALLY old and super lame because we both popped a handful of Tums in a desperate attempt to get rid of our terrible belly aches. Womp womp! When you live in Swell Rio, you rely heavily on tasty treats to make birthdays and holidays feel kind of special. Unfortunately for us, neither gin-spiked drinks nor delectables sounded appealing on Saturday, so we took to the outdoors and enjoyed the fabulous "fall" Texas weather instead. It was divine! As we watched Max chase Tripp and Beesly around the yard, Flyboy and I couldn't help but reminisce about the fact that we began dating exactly 11 years ago on my birthday. Opening presents, receiving mail, and answering cheerful phone calls on October 22nd certainly makes me feel special, but nothing beats the company of my best friend and husband, sweet pups, and little boy. If you asked me if I thought life with Flyboy would look like this 11 years ago, I probably would have rolled my eyes or smirked. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this, but I'll gladly sign up for 11 more. Maybe even 31, if that's not too much to ask?
Alright, enough about me. How are YOU?! I'm dying to know.
