The Mister had a birthday~ but you knew that already thanks to my frantic whining about such things. I am happy to report that his gift DID arrive, with 18 hours to spare! (Thanks for asking!)
His gift was a photo book entitled Remembrances from Hopesteads' First Year, where I printed all the pictures from ALL the projects that Matt did to the Place this past year. He often gets overwhelmed at all there is still left to do (you people with fixer-uppers know what I am talking about!) so I wanted to encourage him to see all that he has DONE. It is easy to forget where you came from when there is still so far to go but bound together with paper and thread, it is REMARKABLE all that he accomplished.
And you followers of this blog for any length of time must know by now the birthday tradition of Matts' shaving before presents? Well, THIS year, he got out of it. (For a day!) ;-)
I love the man.
PS. The food was good too. :-)
