I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal. Will Ferrell and I share the same birthday.
And my grandaddy Alvin too. We share the same birthday. And like 6 people in my home church.
So, maybe I'm not really a big deal.
Anywho, this year, Mike asked what I wanted for my birthday and although there is a Dooney and Bourke purse I'm dying to have, I opted for an experience we could both enjoy and something we'd been talking about doing for a while.
A couple's portrait.
No, not really. I wanted him to take me to the Inn at Fearrington in Pittsboro, NC for a night.
The couple's portrait in our room was a bonus. (More on the Inn at Fearrington in another post)
We have very few pictures together since I'm always the one behind the camera and he refuses to learn how to use the darn thing, so I managed to use the self-timer for like the second time ever and capture some shots of us right before dinner Saturday night.
So unlike that adorable purse with the great hardware and style that would go with almost everything in my closet, that will soil and stain, rip and grow old, I have these images, that will remain forever.
Best. Birthday. Ever.
Thanks for the patience Mike...love you!
