Birthday Love

Just a quick shout out to my wonderful husband!
It is his birthday today – and he is once again 10 years older than me.
For 6 months out of the year, he says he is only 9 years older; but all that changes on December 3. And, I don’t let him forget that he’s my “old man”.

This “old man” loves his kid’s cartoons, but for some reason the Minions from Despicable Me make him extremely happy. So, I knew that I had to order some special cookies for his birthday. For that, I commissioned the same incredible cookie artist that created the  Thanksgiving cookies I took to my grandparents’ home this past week.
I just gave her a few ideas to run with, and she did an amazing job!! I don’t think I expected them to be this stinking cute!
ImageSorry for it being a bit blurry and dark. Beggars can’t be choosers when trying to find a time to photograph cookies without sticky fingers trying to snatch a treat (the toddler’s AND the husband’s). I ended up snapping a pic at 11:00 after both were snoozing.

I have to say, four years ago when I met John, I had no idea the crazy turns my life would take. But each one has been a remarkable journey, with each bringing growth I never expected. Even with all the twists, turns, surprises and disappointments, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Here’s to many more birthdays and Minion cookies! (Though hopefully he’ll have moved on to some new character by then. haha)

  1. These cookies are amazing! So cute and a perfect gift for an old man of a husband. (I have one of those too… lol)

    • The oldies are the best, huh? 🙂 I sent the cookies to work with him and they were gone by 9:30! I know for sure that she got 2 more customers because of them.
