i awoke to presents. my birthday dress.

we ate a lil breakfast and opened some cards.
my parents are selling the home in Georgia this summer.
they're off to live on the 36 acres of land they purchased in South Carolina.
something about wanting to play farmers and raise chickens & pumpkins.
it's a beautiful dream. but not before sending me a piece of our beloved home.
a small, signed, piece of wallpaper from the kitchen.
the kitchen, the place we'd gather and talk for hours. ...i'll miss it terribly.

after breakfast we spent the afternoon in the park with the ducks.
God gave me the most perfect Phoenix weather on my day.
high 80's & windy. absolutely perfect.

    You are so loved! I'm glad your day was so special...and major props to your hubby.

    Incidentally, I am tearing wall paper out of our kitchen today...old old paper that was here when we moved in, and my daughter (age 10) wants to keep a piece. So sweet.
