My birthday was this Sunday, December 15th. I am now 26 years young. I don’t feel any different but my birthday this year was beyond amazing.
It started with David and I having lunch with my parents. We went to a steakhouse. What made this adventure so wonderful was the fact it was the first time David got to meet my parents (aside from the short accidental meeting of my father and brother at my job). He was nervous but they were very kind and easy going on him (not that they had a reason not to be :))
Afterwards we went ugly sweater shopping at the Goodwill and had no luck but the time spent together was fun. I even got to go to an animal shelter and see the guinea pigs up for adoption. I may or may not get one. First things first, a home and then little piggies.
We drove back to Davids house where he gave me my birthday gifts. These gifts were beyond anything I would have thought about on my own. He gave me a leather bound scrap book filled with moments captured on polaroids of how we met, our dates and adventures we have had. This was followed up with the camera that he used to take the mini polaroids. It is a very thoughtful gift. His inspiration was my mentioning of wanting to take more pictures with my own camera since I have been out of touch with photography. This polaroid captures moments that digital cameras or phone cameras cannot. A moment captured as it should be — in the present. I took a picture of David sitting next to me. He makes me so happy.
Thank you my love. For making my special day, a day to remember.
ps - Not only is it amazing, it has not been debut in the states yet. It was imported directly from Japan.
