Birthday with Mike :)

Mike braved the roads last night to come see me. We had plans to spend Tuesday night celebrating my birthday, but with the weather we had to postpone. While it made me nervous that he was out on the roads, I am really grateful he came over- I really missed him :) And because he is amazing, he brought me some of my favorite things: Chick-Fil-A for dinner, Dublin Dr Pepper, and enough dark chocolate peanut M&Ms to be dangerous- have I mentioned how much I love this man? He has obviously learned the way to my heart ;)

It's the simple things, really...

He also gave me a gift card to a spa for me and a friend to get a massage or mani/pedi and a gift card to Cantina Laredo to have lunch and make a day of it :) How sweet and fun is that? It was good to spend time with him- even if he beat me (like he always does) in a rousing game of Scrabble. But I can't think of a better way I would rather spend my 26th birthday.

On my 25th birthday, I was single and not dating anyone (well, I guess every birthday before that was the same too haha). On my 26th birthday, I am engaged to the sweet love of my life, planning our wedding, and getting ready to embark on a new journey to follow God's calling on our lives. It's funny how quickly life changes, and I am blown away by the incredibly unexpected blessings the Lord provides.

Mike, thank you for making my birthday fun and special. I love you! :)
