My birthday and why l love my family

Pin It
I turned one year older yesterday. At this age, birthday is not a big deal to me anymore. Well, it never was. I wasn’t going to do anything big. Maybe go out to a fancy dinner with my family but my sweet husband had plans. Few days before my birthday, he took little one out shopping for Mommy’s gift. The thought of someone who cares and plans my birthday few days ahead just makes me smile (especially his typical work day is 10-12 hours for the past few months).

He gathered everyone together and celebrated my BD past weekend. I had no idea what my gift would be. Little one was being loyal to him and wouldn’t spill the beans. Believe me I try...haha! To my surprise, he got me a pair of princess-cut diamond stud earrings. They are so precious! Why there are 2 boxes, you may ask? Because my sweet husband couldn’t decide which pair I like better. Therefore he brought home both so I can shop at home. He also picked up a couple of Fall shades nail polish for me, isn’t that sweet of him?

The thing makes me happy wasn’t the expensive gift I’ve got (yeah, that too =) but the thoughts that count. I can definitely purchase those earrings myself, that’s not a problem. The fact that he took his time and effort to look for my birthday gift means the world to me. There is such a huge difference between the two. Sometimes, he came home with a latest shade of OPI nail polish and it just made me the happiest girl on earth even though it only costs $8.00. The thought of him trying to figure out the nail polish that he thought I would like worth more than anything. I hope he knows I appreciate all little things he does for me.

I absolutely love the earrings. Hubby told me he got those earrings for me to match with my engagement ring so I feel complete.

I told him I am going to take this gift as our anniversary gift too (also coming up this month). My age is getting bigger but my gift doesn’t have to be this big every year

Sigh...such a sweet post and sweet hubby! You're completely's always the thought that counts as trite as that sounds. But it doesn't hurt to have nice diamonds too, eh? It blows my mind that he's thoughtful enough to pick up some nail polish for you. Erm, I cannot even fathom the thought of my bf picking up some makeup for me.


Tearing up here... You are one lucky girl.

Happy birthday! I couldn't stop smiling when I was reading your post. Your husband and daughter are too sweet. I love how you're so at peace with where you are in life. I hope I reach that same level soon :)


Thanks ladies for your sweet comments

@Sophie-Lou-J: I am glad you found the ring you like :) The process took about 3 months from placing the order/having the ring made/custom sizing to fit my tiny finger. We went through so many little things just to get this ring. Just like you, once I saw this ring, I know I have to have it. I think there are a handful of jewelry retails who partner with Natalie K in the whole nation. If you really wants it, tell your bf to get on it :)

@Cee: Life is stressful for me sometimes but I learn how to live through it. I don't let little things bother me so much. I only care for those I love which is my family. In return, the love/support that my family has for me is what carries me through everything.

That was so sweet of him, especially getting you both pairs of earrings since he was not sure which pair you would like better. And the photo of you and your daughter is so cute. :-)


Belated happy birthday! You have a wonderful little family--and as you said, a very sweet hubby. And I really admire your outlook--if I don't give my wife a birthday week she feels cheated. LOL! But she's my sweetie--so I tease her a lot about it. =)
