they say it's your birthday

yesterday was AWD's birthday.

when we were first engaged and talking about wedding dates, i was very much opposed to having our wedding close to anyone's birthday. mostly because i really like to make a big deal out of birthdays (mostly my own), and i didn't like the idea of an anniversary overshadowing the birthday fun.

but, like the rolling stones teach us, you can't always get what you want and so here we are, getting married right smack dab in the middle of both of our birthdays, with only two weeks on either side.

luckily (hopefully?) this is the only year we'll actually be getting married two weeks after AWD's birthday, but i am sorry to say this time around the madness of last-minute wedding planning did get a little bit in the way.

but also luckily (hopefully?), AWD is a pretty low-key birthday celebrator, so a surprise dinner at rasika (where we have been trying to eat basically since we've been dating), a little gathering of some bennett cousins (welcome home, thomas!) and some presents (my mom wrapped hers, i didn't wrap mine) did the trick.

and, i let AWD open a few wedding presents for good measure.

dear, AWD. i sure am glad you were born.

You know someday you might like it. Evan's birthday is the end of January, two weeks later Valentine's Day, and then two weeks after we have our anniversary. If/When there comes a point in your lives that the money is not flowing as freely as your little heart desires--it can be nice to do something large to cover it all instead of having to settle for something real small for each. Just saying--works for us :) Plus, then we also have my birthday, father's day (some times on the same day) and Aiden's birthday within a few weeks too. The list just goes on and on of examples like that. It will just get crazier as life goes on and babies come ;)
