Without a doubt, I married the right man. Not only is he handsome, funny, smart, and my best friend, but he has this amazing knack, every now and again, of making me feel like a queen.
My plans for yesterday didn’t materialize because Marcus ended up taking the day off of work! He’d planned to take the morning off for my birthday, but since he was still a bit under the weather, he ended up taking the whole day. Even sick, though, it didn’t stop him from making my birthday so special. He made me coffee and a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel for breakfast (yummy), he played with the girls and was an all-around superdad, and he even made plans for us for dinner, including a sitter and some good friends. When there were some kinks in the plans (our sitter didn’t show up, and my favorite restaurant was closed!), he adapted and we still had a wonderful night.
So, how did I spend my free time on my birthday? I knitted, of course. I started a Calorimetry from Knitty as a gift for someone for Christmas. I finished up a Cashmere Neckwarmer. I sat on the computer and looked at all the beautiful things I could be knitting next. Oh, and I talked to my mother on the phone and picked the pattern and the yarn that she wants for her Christmas present.
So, it was a birthday filled with knitting, relaxing, food, family, and friends. It was made possible all by that amazing husband, dad, and man that I married. I really am a lucky woman.
The best part of yesterday is how I feel today. Refreshed. Happy. On top of my mothering and homemaking game.
It doesn’t get any better than that.
