to my sweet husband! With all the drama lately, it’s nice to have a reason to just relax and celebrate the birth of one of the best men I know 🙂 We met in medical school in Chicago, but didn’t really get to know each other until we were randomly seated next to each other on an 8 hour flight from Chicago to Nicaragua. We were going on a medical mission, and were assigned to the same team. We talked non-stop on the way there, bonded over our work while we were in Nicaragua, and have been inseparable ever since! I can’t imagine my life without him…he is my perfect complement in every way. Now that we have a daughter, I have even more reasons to love him as I see what an amazing father he is!
We had a small family celebration at home with delicious Hawaiian food (clockwise from top right): kalua pork and cabbage, ahi poke, lomi lomi salmon, fresh pineapple, sweet potato, and laulau (meat and fish wrapped in taro and then steamed in ti leaves). It was all SO delicious (except I couldn’t have the ahi poke because it’s raw fish, but I will have some after I deliver!)
Patrick doesn’t like cake, but he loves apple pie, so we got him this apple tart.
I love my little family 🙂 This evening, it was date night! A nice dinner out, and now we’re settling into a movie at home on our new TV (Patrick’s birthday present!). Hope you all have a great weekend 🙂
