The magic apple tree :)

It's my birthday on Saturday, I'm going to be 25. Then its our wedding anniversary on Sunday, exciting stuff :)  We leave for our trip Edinburgh right after work today (this post is scheduled), I can't wait! 

Birthdays in this house are so sneaky, we love to plan little surprises and tease each other about the building suspense. I've had to put up with Al's secretive behavior for nearly a month now, things like waking up in the morning and he's already up, on the laptop and won't tell me what he's doing, I'm even banned from certain areas in my own house! 

Who am I kidding? I love it and it makes me feel like such a special lady :) Just seeing how much time, effort and how excited he is about the gifts he's chosen for me shows me how much he cares about making my birthday amazing. I love him! 

Yesterday I got my second early present - A beautiful little apple tree, with 5 tiny apples on it - I nearly cried! I just love it so much, it's the perfect gift for me, it really symbolizes our journey and how we are living our dream right now just on a small scale.
