yesterday the flemings reached a milestone.
one of us turned 30.
and it was not me.
(i'm so gonna get it when i turn 30)
i worked the 3p-11p shift on Sunday night
so i was sleeping when Nick woke up at 6am to get ready for work
...or so he thought...
we ended up getting a Sonos music system for Christmas
and the great thing about it is that you can control your music wirelessly via your iPhone
from any room in the house
like the bedroom
while Nick is in the kitchen making coffee
and you can blast Tim McGraw's "My Next Thirty Years"
not saying i did that.
just saying i could
i baked him a cake.
incidentally, i was skyping Megan whilst baking,
and i believe that i belittled her very existence in my act of domestication,
as evidenced by the following tweet:
i can't help it that i'm equal parts domestic goddess and driven career-woman
and if you believe that,
then you haven't been reading this very long.
but i digress.
Nick got off work early
and came home to be surprised by his cake
which we did not immediately delve into
because we were headed for lunch
|italian wine is the prettiest. (and the driest amiright?)|
we went to Dough
|when given the choice between sparkling or still, we ALWAYS sparkle.|
Dough is an amazing Napolitano pizzeria
and hidden gem in San Antonio
that also makes their own mozzarellas and burratas
|winter burrata, with leeks, baby portobellos, and pancetta|
|cannellini bean soup|
|crack bread. it's addicting.|
|their oven. brought over on a ship. from Naples, Italy. blam.|
we had a delightful lunch
because I had to work again at 3pm
|self-timer self portraits are the best.|
it wasn't ideal
but around here, these days, we take what we can get.
and sometimes, what you can get, is cake.
|lemon raspberry cake with lemon buttercream frosting|
so Nick, if you're reading this (which you rarely do),
i'm so proud of who you're becoming
and i genuinely believe you are the most handsome 30-year-old to walk this earth.
you have so many gifts and talents
and you love me so well.
i feel incredibly blessed to walk through life with you
and i can't wait to see what the next 30 years hold.
