Only 1 hour into my birthday and look what I found!

Have I mentioned lately that my sweet husband, Nathan, loves me? This morning he greeted me (after letting me sleep an extra couple of hours) with all five babies and a BIG box! That is always a GREAT way to wake up, right? When I opened the box, look what I found:




For those that are new to this blog, this is the coffee serving set that goes with my wedding china pattern. The pattern has been discontinued and Nathan had to drive about an hour and a half out of town to find this! Not only that, but he mistakenly purchased cups and saucers with the pitchers first. When he looked in the cabinet and realized that I HAD the cups and saucers, HE WENT BACK and exchanged them for the creamer and sugar service.


Am I married to Superman or what?!?!?!?!?!

I am LOVING that we are using our china, at least, weekly now! When the day comes that my children inherit these peices, they will have memories o go along with them They won't be holding on to dusty pieces of china, just because I did or because they have monetary value.
These pieces will have REAL value in thier hearts.


******Go here(1) & here (2) for background on why this gift is so special to me --to us!

******HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BELLE TODAY ALSO!! ****

That was my grandmother's china pattern, too. You've got yourself a keeper - guy, not china :)

Have a great birthday!

Thanks Angela!! Happy Birthday to you, too!!!

What a man! I LOVE your china. Mine has been discontinued as well. I drag it out on holidays, but I really love that you use your at least weekly. I think I might try that.

Just read about your amazing Graycen. You're a great mom, Angela. You're raising those children right!
