Shorty, it's your birthday...

I turned 25. Wow. 1/4 of my life has been spent (since I like to think that i'll live to be 100.)
Where did it go? And will the next 25 years go by just as fast?

Birthdays are a good time to reflect on time past and look forward to times to come.
As I reflect on the past I am happy to say that I am proud of the things I have accomplished, and grateful to my Father in Heaven for guiding me to be who I am and where I am today.
As I look forward to the future I am excited for the life my sweet husband and I are creating for ourselves, for the future family we will have together(no, I am not prego), and for the continued guidance we receive from our Father in Heaven.

I know the road ahead is just as beautiful as the road behind me.

I arrived home from work on the 29th so happy to see my husband home from work and awaiting my arrival! He gave me a big smooch and a hug, beautiful roses, a cake, and a sweet card expressing his love... sigh.

Yes, that is Cinderella on my cake. Haha... I guess that means he sees me as his princess, making him my prince charming. Either that or just a big fan of Disney Cinderella... but i'll assume it's the first reason.

We ate dinner just down the street at Lili's on Magnolia Avenue. Delicious! We ate there again less than a week later. It is a quiant little restaurant that is actually top rated in Fort Worth.
ps. order the key lime pie for dessert. You will taste heaven.

I picked out this piece of art for my birthday gift. We found it at an Antique Mall and I fell in love. It is 3 feet in diameter, metal, and just simply stunning to me. Definitely my style. Not sure that it is Bens but his bird is the Rooster painting we bought in the Dominican Republic and this will be my bird in the house. :)
