happy birthday, boo boo!

for it was not into my ear you whispered,
but into my heart. it was not my lips
you kissed, but my soul.
{judy garland}


today is patrick's birthday.
he'll enjoy his favorite, green bean casserole.
say what you will about casseroles, or 'hot dish' as they say here...sometimes it hits the spot.
patrick married me for my green bean casserole making skills. obviously.
also for my buttercream frosting making skills, he's requested cupcakes as well.

i love this old photo booth photo of our family

we love you, babe. super proud of you.
at thirty one years old, you are still a champion, going strong!

oh, and this is a favorite, too.

and remember when we heard this song? praying this with you, on and on!
