It's that time of year again, when all my thoughts start gravitating towards a new school year and the hundreds of students that not-so-patiently need my attention, my creativity, and my energy. But amidst the chaos of back-to-school meetings and lesson planning, I get to take a 1 week in August to celebrate the person who means the most to me: my husband, Andrew.
Happy Birthday, Andrew!!!
I fully believe it celebrating not just a birthDAY but a birthday WEEK! A day is just too short for one to feel the full extent of how grateful I am that Andrew was born.
So here is birthday week outlined for you. It started last Tuesday and ends today, Andrew's actual birthday.
Tuesday- It all started out with breakfast in bed. Andrew works late on Tuesdays, so that means he gets to sleep in a bit. I especially love this in the summer, when I can cuddle with him for a few more hours.
Wednesday- I brought him a Cafe Rio salad (his favorite), and we ate lunch outside his office. We relished the half hour that commemorated our last weekday lunch-date.
Thursday- This day was just a small "gift". I bought him a giant soda from Sodalicious.
Friday- We drove to the outlets in Park City. This is seriously one of Andrew's favorite places to go. I didn't even tease him when we drove right up to the Nike store just so we could walk around it and end up not buying anything (which is what always seems to happen). Then we went to Sammy's Bistro in Park City for dinner.
Saturday- Big dinner celebration with friends and family. We had a ginormous group of 16 people come celebrate Andrew's birthday at the Cheesecake Factory.
Sunday- We went over to Andrew's grandma's house for family dinner. Just another night to spend surrounded by people we love.
Monday- And then we ended birthday week by going to a Brazilian steakhouse.
So there you have it, birthday week all mapped out. I was totally panning on taking a picture of each event so that I could include it in this post, but.....well, you can see how many photo ops I actually succeeded in capturing.
Instead, here is one little photo of us in California way back when.
