A friend of ours did a list of things about her husband for his birthday, one for each year. I'd told Nathan about it and said I'd do it for his birthday. Oops. I forgot. I guess he was really looking forward to it though because today he reminded me of it and told me how disappointed he was that I hadn't done it yet. Sorry Nathan! I love you!
