May is quite the celebratory month around here: Mother's day, our anniversary, and one short day later, my birthday! Today I was thoroughly surprised with a typewriter from none other than my two girls (of course choreographed by there very sweet daddy). We were all very excited to put it to use. I have actually been dreaming about one of these for some time now (although owning one makes me feel a bit like this guy or this guy, or a little like the staff of Deuce Hotel). It is wonderful to hear a little "click click click" as I go about doing my chores, knowing the girls are practicing their writing. Too cute.
There's a little "love pile up." Warning: if you lie down around our house, Hugo will do one of these full body hugs on you. What can I say? He's a lover.
And if you squint at that last picture, you can see an assortment of whiskey that I bought for Ben for our anniversary (a typewriter? whiskey? What is this, Mad Men?). I am definitely not a big drinker, but I did my best, and hopefully found some interesting things for him to sip on over the coming year. You know, sometimes a man needs something manly like whiskey.
I am counting down the hours until we enjoy a chocolate frozen custard cake tonight. Seven and counting.
