Yesterday was my birthday!
I have found celebrations in plural marriage to be somewhat complicated emotionally and logistically, but was pleasantly surprised yesterday.
NO ONE is better at birthdays than hubby. I would challenge anyone.
First, he let me sleep. The night before he came into my room very late to ask what my favorite meal was. I don't have one and he knows this but thought perhaps he had just missed it. lol...
I knew we didn't have the money to go out, so I told him to just make anything he thought I would like.
Then, after I awoke, he wouldn't let me tidy up as I usually do and even made a point of leaving me alone to write without interruption.
Near dinner, he made me a romantic, aromatic whirlpool bath complete with candles and soothing music.
Dinner was delicious as always and he went out of his way to try a couple of new dishes to make the dinner special. Also baked me a cake!
After dinner, hubby feeling disappointed that we didn't go to Mexico for my birthday as we had for the past few years, made some margarittas and sat outside with me for a couple of hours just enjoying the coolish evening.
Then, instead of 3 or 4 am, he came to bed early.
It was a lovely day.
It was the first day since coming here to live in April, that I have felt special and as close to him as I did during our courtship.
