Birthdays and Other Holidays

March 2000. I made a hideous cake for TC's birthday, forgot to buy candles, and didn't think to move the cake to a plate or something prettier than the cooling rack. But I made the cake that TC asked for (red velvet with peaches and cream). And he was happy, because he's just that kind of guy.

March 2003. TC bought me the shoes I had been eyeing for months. Every time we went to ZCMI I had to ogle the shoes. And he surprised me by buying them for me. I still have those shoes, and I still love them.

For TC's birthday that year I bought him a lava lamp. Doesn't quite compare to the awesome shoes he got me, but TC doesn't complain. And we still have the lava lamp. And we still use it from time to time.

And who can forget Valentine's Day 2004? I woke up that Saturday morning to a trail tissue paper hearts leading me from the bedroom to the living room. The coffee table was decorated with a table cloth and candles. We ate our cereal that morning by candlelight while we watched cartoons and drank juice out of wine glasses. My gift from TC was a beautiful bright pink rain coat.

TC is and always has been a great gift giver. His gifts are thoughtful and always a surprise to me. Is it any wonder that I love him so much?
