It was my husband’s birthday last week.
And – being the awesome wife that I am – I organised to take him out for a romantic dinner last Friday evening. Just the two of us. A cocktail followed by dinner at a restaurant we’d both been wanting to try for ages.
An occasion such as this called for a new outfit.
For him AND for me.
After all, me looking good would be yet another birthday gift for him – right? Right!
Not only did I feel fabulous (probably the most fabulous I’ve felt in a really, really, really long time) but he also told me how fabulous I looked. Several times. And we had one of the best nights – full of laughs, sneaky kisses, hand holding, cuddles and great conversation.
EXACTLY what we both needed.
This lady in red is one happy lady with one happy husband. And that’s a really lovely thing to say after 12.5 years together.
Here’s to many more birthdays together (and many more excuses to buy new dresses)!
