my birthday in pictures

as i mentioned earlier, i’ve had a fabulous birthday. we were up *very* early to head to breakfast as wes-man’s, which is in a little town called white just east of cartersville. we love this place, even though we don’t go too often. last year, joe had a “happy birthday” message to me painted on the 1940s truck that the restaurant’s owner paints each day with messages.

today, we pulled up to find my name on the truck again. this time, though, only my name was on it. yay.

birthday 1

while we were waiting for our food, joe gave me my present. he’d been telling me he got me the best present ever, and it totally lived up to the hype. he made a collage of pictures of me and us together around the lyrics to the song “just like heaven” by the cure, which is our “other” song. i made him one for our one-year anniversary with the words to our song, and now we both have one.

birthday 5

on monday night at our kiwanis meeting, we celebrated my birthday by me being forced to wear a pair of antlers while everyone sang (or, in our case, hummed) the birthday song.

birthday 12

tonight, we’re going to provino’s for dinner, which is one of my favorite restaurants. i can’t wait!

    I can’t believe how crafty Joe is! Was he like that “BC” (“Before Cady”) or did he learn from you?
