happy birthday husband and happy anniversary to us

it's husband's birthday today. sabin made this fabulous cake for him while we were at work. that's a fondant tractor that looks a bit like husband's own little red tractor. not all of it was edible. the child has learned her share of tips and tricks from watching cake programs on TLC. very clever. it was six layers with nutella, cake creme (a rather pudding-like substance), bananas, pears, pineapple and raspberry jam, all covered in whipped cream and with sprinkles and fondant decoration. just perfect.

it's also our 15th anniversary. as husband remarked this morning, "15 years. i've never been married that long before." and neither have i. until today. i hope we make it 'til at least 3 times that. it's been a great ride so far. i always feel consciously grateful on this day for the path i chose to take with husband. the memories we've made and the plans and projects still ahead. i definitely made the right choice, so many years ago, turning everything upside down for love. it was all worth it.

Happy birthday to husband and happy anniversary to both of you. Chloe says, "way to go Sabin, that's a fantastic cake!" and now she wants chocolate-nutella cupcakes. :) Hope you both have many more happy years together. :)
