Tia's Birthday

On my birthday I was welcomed home from work by "Coolio" the birthday snowman. Coolio started off my birthday with a single red rose and a birthday note. I was later told that the red dot on his cheek was a pimple because he was so nervous waiting for me.

I walked inside to find my wonderful husband standing at the top of the stairs holding a dozen red roses. He had prepared chicken marsala with pasta and decorated the table with an Easter Lily. Then, knowing the Carvel icecream cake tradition, he brought out a Carvel icecream cake (with balloon candles) accompanied by my favorite dessert wine. That, of course, brought tears to my eyes as there are no Carvel icecream places nearby and I had pretty much accepted that Carvel wouldn't be apart of the celebration this year... not to mention it was a touch of home!

Later, we went out to play in the snow as it had snowed 6.5 inches early that morning. We made our first snow angels ever and had a snowball fight. When we came back in, I had to "find" my presents around the house as they were hidden. He didn't make it an easy treasure hunt. It took me a few hours, but I eventually found them and loved them. It was an awesome birthday.
I felt so loved, not only from my husband, but from all the calls, cards, and text messages I received from my family and friends. Thank you for making me feel special and for being apart of my life.
