Day 314 of 365: Happy Birthday, Matt!
Matt turned 35 today and I still don't think he looks like he's out of his twenties. So many hats now...brother, hubby, son. Just think, next year he will have another that says 'Happy Birthday, Daddy!' as well.
He has the week booked off work, so I get him all to myself...kinda. We've been tossing some thoughts around about places we can go to celebrate a bit. Initially we thought camping a few nights at The Lake District would be ideal, however, that might not be best until after our little thumper is here. The amount of times I need to get up in the middle of the night anymore and the aches in my lower back would not make for fun camping. We'd still like to take a couple short, inexpensive day-trips if we can. Good thing I have a camera now willing and able to take pictures.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
