A Pinteresting Fourth of July

First of all, I wanted to give a shout-out to my husband, my soulmate, my companion, and my monkey!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! 😀  Sorry I couldn’t be home with you when the clock hit midnight, but I can’t wait to see you later on today!  I’m excited for all the wonderful things that are sure to come this year for you and for us.  Love you more than cupcakes (is that possible, yes it is)!

from july 2005 – the day we had our “define the relationship” talk 🙂

This long holiday weekend will be spent relaxing, cleaning, hanging out with friends, going out to eat, and hopefully seeing some fireworks.  After working about 80 hours this week, relaxation is MUCH needed around here.  But to celebrate this holiday, of course I had to do a Pinterest post based on it!
