i’ve been struggling with my weight lately, and even though he doesn’t think i’m fat i’m not feeling too good about myself. joe just emailed me to tell me he’s been doing research and found a new workout for me to try. it’s little things like that that show me how much he loves me.

my day

was fantastic. joe and i went to church, then to my grandparents’ for my birthday dinner with the family. afterward, we went and walked around downtown, then went to tony’s, an italian restaurant, for dinner. we were going to go see phantom of the opera, but it is a 2.5 hour movie and i was afraid i wouldn’t be able to stay awake, as it started at 9:55 p.m. so we walked around the mall, bought a few things and came home. joe gave me the greatest presents: a hanging picture frame with three frames, hanging candle lanterns and bridget jones 2, which he said he bought because it was what we saw on our first date. awwww.
