Happy birthday to me.

As an early birthday present my husband made me a delicious dinner Saturday night. He prepared lemon pepper chicken with mashed potatoes and peas. He even made gravy from scratch for the first time. It was very tasty! I'm looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow for lunch.

He also gave me my gifts early (we tend to do that a lot).

A beautiful yarn bowl

The yarn in the bowl is for some socks I'm making him.

And this lovely necklace

These are both handmade items purchased from Etsy. I love that he picked such thoughtful gifts and that they are handmade. I really appreciate handmade items as I understand the effort and care that goes into making things yourself.

Thank you, Shawn. It was a lovely day even though my head was congested and my nose was running.
