Counterpart

Just celebrated my boyfriend's 28th birthday!  I orchestrated a sequence of surprises all week to make the event extra special for him this year.  They included home cooked meals (despite what you may think - that really is a novelty in this relationship), gifts, and of course - a surprise birthday party with his closest friends and family.  On his actual birthday we chose to dine at Chez Daniels, which is a French restaurant in the greater Minneapolis area.  It was superb!  We like to go all out when we eat so uniformly we delved in a three course meal.  I had the french onion soup, sea scallops, and pan seared lamb chops. Augh, just the act of typing that made me salivate.  I'm resisting the urge to scroll up to see my food pic in fear that I might self implode from envy and hunger.

It was an incredible series of events and I was almost sad to have it all be over with.  After all, he is, and continues to be, the kindest, softest, and most loving person I have ever met and the celebration of his life is paramount to me.  His patience and devotion to me over the years has truly been a catalyst for my own personal growth and I am incredibly blessed to call him mine.  You probably saw some of the photos above on my instagram (@5ivefeetsmall) and peeped my Bey limerick.  I am obsessed with her new album, particularly this song so I had to :)  Here's the entire song in case you foolishly haven't downloaded it yet.

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me like XO
