There is something about celebrating the one you love and I sure do love celebrating Brandon's birthday. He probably thinks i'm the cheesiest person ever because of all the things i try to do for him, but I love it and him. I really reflected this year about why I love him, and how much I really can't live with out him. He's made me a better me and is so patient with the way I am. I know I have a lot of faults, but he has the patience of Job and is always motivating me and helping me do better. Goodness i just love him. Anyway sorry for the mush. But we went on a day date (Thanks for my mom for watching the boys!!) and we went Pago in Salt Lake. It was incredibly good and with a visually pleasing aesthetic.
I tried to surprise Brandon all week by waking up in the middle of the night to decorate the house with birthday signs or other decorations. Or I tried to surprise him one night during the week with a bunch of friends to go out to dinner. OR I try to surprise him by getting all his brothers together to go rock climbing on the night of his birthday... I don't know if he catches onto my surprise but he always plays along and is generally always so excited.
I promise I'm happy! haha! This moment was probably just a nice relaxation mode i transitioned into from eating with sweet little boys needing something every five seconds to a nice quiet adult filled, i didn't make this lunch mode.
Have I ever said how much I am obsessed with parsnips? I love them. So this roasted parsnip soup was golden. I can't stop thinking about how to make it and I mayyyy have just found a recipe that might be similar!
>So grateful for this man, and how he treats me and our kids. He is so good to the core, and I sure love you Brandon.
