Today is my best friend, my soul-mate, the love of my life & my Little Dudes father’s birthday! Crazy to think that this was the 10th birthday we had celebrated together! I remember celebrating his 30th birthday together and I surprised him with a huge party! Now ten years later our adventures together continue from getting married, having a family and most recently moving cross country! I couldn’t imagine it any other way! Happy Birthday Babe!
Our family tradition was to celebrate a week of birthdays! So each day starting the week before the birthday we start celebrating by giving something small, making something or cooking a favorite meal or dessert. This is always my favourite part because I’m a massive foodie, especially when it comes to desserts like chocolate cakes and profiteroles which I always get when it’s my turn. When it comes to the gift giving, my go to gift is always something from somewhere like jacobs the jeweller because there is always something for everyone in jewellery shops. Jewellery is such a traditional gift for the one you love too, which gives it an extra nice touch. Each day is special and all about the birthday person! How do you celebrate birthday’s in your family?
