The Best Husband. .

I just have to brag about the amazing husband I have. Yesterday was his last day in his current assignment in California. Tomorrow he will be leaving CA headed for Telluride, CO for a 10 day ski trip that has been planned for a while. I am so excited he will be going somewhere new to ski and I hope it dumps buckets while he is there! From Telluride, he will drive here to be with me for about a week. I am so excited about seeing him, obviously!
Yesterday was my 26th birthday! I just have to show you what showed up at my door yesterday.
These came today. He didn't know why but they had to come separately!
I don't feel bad about eating 3 of them immediately upon opening the box!!! I am sorry I didn't get a picture of the full box though!! Oh well! I just couldn't wait!

He is the best. I can't wait to see him. I can't wait to hold him! He can make me feel like the most special person in the world and he doesn't even have to be in the same state as me! Amazing!

Happy Birthday Camille / My 100th Post!

So this is my 100th post on this blog. In the beginning, 100 posts seemed so distant and unreachable. I guess I just didn't think I would have enough subject matter to write about for 100 posts. Now it seems that I just started it and I can recall all the posts I have written and what they are about.

Tomorrow, February 5th, is my baby sister's 20th birthday. My oh my! I remember asking for a younger sibling when I was about 4, assuring my parents that it did not matter to me if it was a boy or a girl. Well when I was six, I got Camille, my new baby sister. I think it was only a year or so after she was born that I informed my parents that I had made a mistake in requesting such a thing as a sibling and that she was ruining my life! I let her exist in my world growing up, but mainly, she got in my way and into all of my stuff. It wasn't until after I left home for college that I realized what a cool girl she is. Over the years we have spent more time together as we both have become adults. I have come to realize something over this time. I need her.
I need her to make sure I don't walk out of the house looking like a color-blind train wreck.
I need her accessories and shirts so that my mundane monotonous wardrobe has a little spice every now and then.
I need her to go with me to new places when I am afraid I am not socially apt to make it on my own in a new crowd.
I need her to help me make fun of our mom and dad when they say something hilarious.
I need to share all of our family inside jokes with her.
I need her to be with me when I am having a bad day without Trae, whether I need to talk or not.
I need her so that I can be cool by association.
I need her hugs.
I need her smile.
I need her laugh.
I need her humor.
I need her imagination and love of all things bright and colorful.
I need her to know that I am proud of her and that I love her more than she will ever know.

Happy Birthday Camille!
