last night, i got my first birthday gift!
even though my birthday is still about a month away, dan had very good reason for handing my present over early (aside from the fact that we are both cuckoo and can never wait to give each other ANY kind of gift – anniversary, christmas, valentine’s day, etc.). i am going to be needing the contents of this gift before october 12th.
i specifically requested that dan plan a hike for the day of my birthday (since it’s on a saturday) and luckily, that was right in line with what he was thinking! talk about soulmates. we are also hoping to get some hiking in this weekend during a camping trip, so he broke out the boots early to make sure i get as much use out of them as humanly possible.
(incidentally, if anyone has suggestions for great hiking around the chicagoland area, let ’em rip!)
