Friday was my birthday. Jeremy really made it a birthday week. The Saturday before, we spent the day in the country and had some really relaxing quality time and ate some amazing farm fresh food. The Monday after, we had a double date with some dear friends. Then on my actual birthday, I got pedicures with a best friend in the afternoon and then came home in the evening to a clean house, a sweet husband, and the coolest birthday gift I've ever received. I present...my new kitchen cart.
When Jeremy and I were in Chattanooga, TN in June, we popped into a couple of antique stores (one of our favorite pastimes), and we stumbled across this adorable antique desk, and I said it would be the perfect size for a kitchen cart. Little did I know, Jeremy went back later without me and bought it and brought it home and hid it somewhere for nearly two months. Then he built a base for it and put it on wheels and created the coolest kitchen cart I've ever seen! I came home from work on my birthday to find it in my kitchen, and I gasped. My love language is gifts, and the fact that he put so much thought, creativity, and work into something for me was so special. Four years ago, my birthday present was a diamond ring on my finger, so that's hard to beat, but this gift was definitely a favorite! Also, it's gonna look so good in our newly painted white kitchen (that update to come soon!) The kitchen looks nothing like these photos right now...it's a lot brighter, whiter, and messier at the moment.
