Oh oh, I hear you say, what's Trina thinking now?
Well, a ton of things. First off, a big happy anniversary to my lovely hubby Andy. 12 years married yesterday.
I find buying presents for Andy incredibly hard. He has everything he wants, and if he doesn't he works out a plan to get it. So it leaves it hard to buy for him. Especially straight after fathers day. So what I do, is use the 'traditional / modern' wedding anniversary 'themes'. This year, for 12 years it was silk, linen and pearl.
My favourite gift was the cotton hankies (part of the linen category? I'll take that!) I brought and had embroidered. He LOVES hankies. I hate them. But that's part of what makes this gift special. I still got them even though I hate them. LOL. The other part is what I got them embroidered with. A little something that is special to us. A promise we made to each other. Four/4/for. Forever.
We went out for a stunning lunch at the Takapuna Beach cafe. The day was gorgeous so it couldn't have been better. After we sat on a chair by the beach and ate ice cream. Oh my goodness. I had coconut chocolate and salted caramel. Divine!
Today is a new day. I sit here typing in my dressing gown. The chaos of the morning seeming like a million hours away. But boy oh boy. Does anyone else have major issues in the morning? If so, my question for you is how do you have breakfast? I remember growing up we all sat down together. Food on the table that we all ate from, then it was put away at the end of the meal. It doesn't seem to work like that anymore. Certainly not for us. Perhaps it's something I need to reinstate in our family? It might help streamline things a bit? Would love your input on how to help me get through the morning. TA!
And finally, I realised today how much I appreciate reading through my blog. I can't remember what made me look? I think I was checking if I'd done an update on something? But I got sidetracked as I looked over past layouts, Sunday Shake Ups, rambling thoughts and realised that I miss having my posts written down. I haven't been putting things up here as often as I used to. I swore facebook wouldn't take over from my blog when I joined. But it has. Maybe it's time to change it back again, stick to my promise to myself?
Have a great day!
