Zade's Birthday: Two are Better Than One

Zade and I observed the passing of thirty to thirty one years by asking off our respective works and spending a restful, unpretentious day together. 

The theme for this birthday was "two are better than one" from this passage of Scripture.

The decor.....

A little drawing of the two of us holding hands. 

The gift.....

Since purchasing our X-box console a few months ago Zade and I have affirmed the need for another controller so we can spend date nights nerding-out together once in a while. I snagged this one off Craigslist from a plump, sweet-looking high school boy with a mouth full of braces. We made the trade-off at a movie theater. It seemed fitting.

The cake.....

I tried - and failed miserably in my domesticity- to make this cake from Sweetapolita. My salted caramel swiss buttercream filling was a sweet, frothy mess - the consistency of cottage cheese. Yes, that bad. I threw it out and opted for a favorite chocolate standby. Ladies from our church let me borrow their six inch pans - so kind - the size is so darling. 


"Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow." - Ecclesiastes 4:9,10

Thank you Zade for being by my side to lift me when I fall.
