Happy Birthday John!

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Today is my best friend's birthday! John turns 24 today! Too bad I'm not there to give him his birthday kisses.

It's been a little while since I've dedicated a whole post to him so I figured why not. It's his birthday!

We've made some wonderful memories over the years we've known each other. There have been so many happy moments, it's hard to remember all of them.

I think one of the best moments was during the first year John and I were dating. We happened to be going home for his birthday. His mom and I started scheming as soon as we figured out the trip was set. We talked about what to do for weeks. We finally decided on a cake and surprise party. I came up with the idea of a baseball cake because he always talked about how much he loved the sport.

The cake turned out wonderful, John was surprised and actually wasn't too mad that we made a big deal about his birthday!

This year his birthday is going to be much more low key. His mom sent him cake in a jar, which is pretty awesome in my humble opinion.

I got him a set of Corelle dishes the last time I was there as an early birthday gift. You know you're getting older when you get house stuff for your birthday! Love you John!
