This post is about my birthday...hence the title. That morning, Jack and my Mother-in-Law Janie had made a cake for me to wake up to (after sleeping in :-) ) it was sooooooooooo cute and very much appreciated. Jack was loving it since he lives to make people smile.
As a couple, we don't get to go out together too often. I really wanted to spend the day with Jon since he was so busy traveling this summer so I barely saw the man. And I miss that man terribly when he's gone for even a half hour. So, we went to my favorite little shop called Brookdale Farms in Hollis, NH before going out to dinner with my Mom and Greg. The weather was perfect. It was sunny, warm and had a slight breeze that would cool you off the moment you needed it.
Brookdale Farm in the summer is stunning. Nothing but flowers for miles...er...70ft. The colors are vibrant and the scents all seem to work together. It's like walking by your favorite Yankee Candle. One day, I want a garden with mostly purple and white flowers. Those are the plants I'm drawn to the most. Like (in order of favorites) Lilacs, white Hydrangeas, Lavender and white Roses.
I love the hanging flower baskets from the tree.
way back when.
It was wonderful sitting under the tree and just enjoying each other. We always discuss dreams and goals and support each other to no end. One of my favorite things is just being with him. We don't even need to speak to each other the whole time.
Remember his girlfriend from the Zoo?
Must hit up the candy section! Boy, oh boy was he loving it inside.
The only picture of us...who needs eyes these days? Overrated.
Once we left, we went to a favorite spot of mine called The Pasta Loft in Milford, NH. It was a blast! Little secret...I didn't drink because I was positive I was pregnant (which I was), so I had Root beer. Mmmmm.
Jon enjoyed the fruity Margarita which may or may not have come with a face.
Here is my prettyful Momma. Love her!
The boys...discussing "boy" things. Nasty fools.
Sorry babe ;-) ....not sorry.
