We turn not older with years, but newer every day. - Emily Dickinson


Well, the big day has come and gone and it was such a delight. While waiting to pick up Ben from work, I hiked over to the mall for some much needed thinking time. There's a caribou smack in the middle of the mall where I ordered some chai and made my pretty list of 21 things to do for the 21st year. :) 

Here are a few:
1. Bake an apple pie from scratch
2. Sew the following: apron, dress, skirt,  & coat
3. Have a rockin 1st year of marriage.
4. Secret
5. Be more compassionate to family.
6. Secret
7. Get in the habit of laughing.
8. Secret
9. Learn Guitar, write Ben a love song
10. Start looking for ways to 'bless others' rather than 'treat myself."
11. Make our neighbors cookies :D
12. Secret
13. Secret
14. See the ocean with Ben.
15-18 Secret
19. Finish my knitting projects :)
20. Get to know Mr. Ben even better.
21. Super secret!
22. Learn the napolean dynamite dance (Yes, I'm quite the over achiever)
 After I made my lists and watched all these cute pregnant women (every pregnant woman in Minneapolis came to the mall yesterday) walk around, I headed off to pick up my husband.
After I picked up mr. Ben, he began the real birthday celebrations:

After going out to eat, he took me to SURPRISE. The guitar center and got me the most beautiful guitar. I played it all night until my fingers hurt and was. SO. Happy.
Ben's quite the teacher with guitar as well. Ladies and Gentlemen, I picked well. Thanks Ben, for the most kickin b-day ever.
You're the most amazing man ever.
So, good birthday indeed.

All thanks to this guy:
Greatest. Birthday. Ever

Over and out.
