Yesterday was my 23rd birthday! I can't believe I'm 23. I feel like 23 is a real age, an adult age, so I have mixed feelings about it because I don't know if where I thought I would be now. But just like a new year, a new age brings lots of promise and potential. So of course I'm excited to see what 23 holds.
Matt and I actually had a sweet little celebration Saturday because he picked up a new class of students yesterday and knew he'd be working super late. Excuse my creepy red eye correction and then red eye in the next picture - I get the WORST red eye!
Matt bought me a Le Creuset dutch oven which I've been wanting forever.
And he also bought me three cookbooks:
I didn't have the classic Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and he knew I wanted one. And The Silver Spoon is seriously like the bible of Italian cooking - it's almost 1300 pages! And of course he threw in a Jamie Oliver cookbook I don't have. I cannot wait to get cooking!
