The way I see it, any reason to celebrate a loved one is an opportunity worth making the most of. Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries of any description, milestones, successes ~ you name it, drinks are on and memories are made.
Over the years my passion to celebrate my own birthday, Mother’s Day, or achievements, has dulled.
“Sorry, I forgot.” and “You’re not my mother.” replaced the early morning greeting and cup of tea in bed. I’ll never forget the look on my children’s faces when they apologised for not having a gift to give, which was never expected but something they wanted to reciprocate. My gorgeous mum and sister compensated and made sure my cherubs weren’t disappointed.
Then I met Trent…
Thought out and planned Christmas gifts, in boxes filled with snow, brought tears to my eyes.
An organised breakfast cook off, for Mother’s Day, with a trophy for the winning team, left me lost for words.
Then came my birthday. Not only did he shower me with beautiful gifts, he dedicated days to celebrate me.
A romantic dinner for two, a surprise dinner with the kids, followed by a relaxing afternoon at the exquisite Mandoon Winery with our gorgeous friends.
Althought the official celebrations have come to an end, it’s the everyday moments we share, and the little things he constantly does, that light up my life brighter than neon.
I hope you have someone special in your life to celebrate with!
