Motherhood. Lawyer-dom. And maybe a few nice recipes.

Happy Birthday, Dear Jerrod.

Yesterday was Jerrod’s 37th birthday.  Ten years ago, Jerrod and I celebrated his 27th birthday together, and that was the first birthday of his that we were a couple.  It’s hard to believe that it has been ten years, and our celebration yesterday was definitely a little different than our celebration ten years ago.  On Jerrod’s 27th birthday, we were newly engaged, and we had only known each other for about seven months.  On that day, I was thankful for Jerrod as a great friend and companion, and I was anxiously anticipating our wedding and a new life together.  On Jerrod’s 37th birthday, he has a few more girls in his family, and we appreciate him in his role as father, husband, confidante, book-reader, toy-picker-upper, best playmate, and shoulder to cry on. 

Avery and I kicked the day off by making Jerrod’ s birthday cake.  Avery helped a bit but was most zealous about the clean-up.  

We had a family dinner last night, complete with multiple rounds of “happy birthday.” 

Here’s to you Jerrod!  It’s fun to think about what your 47th will look like!
