yesterday, my darling husband turned another year older.
while he worked the first half of the day, i picked up a few of his favorite things; tickets to a concert, his favorite beer, and a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake.
we spent the afternoon playing putt-putt and drinking wine on the patio of il lazzerone before a storm blew in and forced us inside. we shared the most delicious bruschetta and neopolitan pizza before heading home to open gifts and blow out birthday candles. naturally, we devoured half of the cake in one sitting and were in bed by ten. tonight, we drove down to kansas city to see phish at the starlight theatre. we arrived early for dinner + drinks that were included in our tickets. the concert was so much fun and we hung around for as long we could in the haze of nag champa before carter called it a night. he has been suffering from a lot of pain in his foot lately and we are just praying it will not call for another surgery. so, we came home, ate more cake, and crawled into bed where he is currently snoring away.
happy birthday, husband. twenty eight sure looks good on you!
