This week I turn 30. Thirty years of life...sounds long, and short all at the same time. :) For whatever reason, I anticipated NOT looking forward to this day. I thought I would have a hard time NOT being in my twenties anymore. I actually still remember posting my 29th birthday blog this time last year as Chad and I were making our final preparations for our wedding day. It felt like just yesterday. With all the hub-bub going on last year, both our birthdays (mine Oct. 14th, Chad’s Dec. 10th) took a side seat to the wedding, knowing full well that we’d be sure to make up for it in the coming years as husband and wife. Chad, being the sweetheart that he is, DID NOT let me down. :)
It’s funny how the things he does for me doesn’t ever surprise me, yet he still manages to get me every single time. He never ceases to amaze me with his attention to detail, the HUGE effort taken to make everything just “right” in order to make things as special as possible, and his cunning surprise abilities! A month of planning and little birthday gifts scattered here and there, given like they were the last, definitely had me blind to what was the “end all, be all” gift.
A brand spankin’ new 27” iMac computer!!
After what seemed like a long day flying, I arrived home to a darkened office where supposedly the light bulbs had gone out. Reaching for the light over the desk top, my mouth DROPPED when I found THIS waiting for me!!
HOLY CRAP CHAD!! :) :)
I definitely think Chad gets as much happiness out of giving me gifts as he does in receiving them. Almost immediately, I turned around to spot Chad's eyes welling up with tears just seeing how happy he had just made me. What a MAN! Knowing full well that I wouldn't have considered such a large purchase for myself, he planned this unbelievable surprise. I'm still in shock! I can't wait to use it... too bad I have to wait til AFTER we come back from our Yosemite trip (which I thought was my ORIGINAL and ONLY birthday present!!).
