Happy Birthday Wish

It was my husband's 28th birthday last Sunday. I put some birthday gifts beside his pillow early in the morning. I guess I succeeded in surprising him, but I am not sure if he was really happy with the gifts: a leather wallet and two nice pairs of chopsticks. He had hinted that he wanted to have a new computer, which I couldn't afford at all!

Anyway, our usual birthday tradition is to go to a nice restaurant. But this year, he told me he wanted to celebrate his birthday at home, having his favorite Italian dish for dinner. To be honest, it would have been much easier for me to spend time in a restaurant rather than at home, because all I do at a restaurant is just sit, eat and pay the bill. But it was his birthday, and people have to obey the celebrant's wish. So, I had to look everywhere in our small town to find some unusual Italian ingredients, such as mushrooms, spices and vegetables. Finally I managed to cook cream spaghetti with porcini mushrooms, ratatouille (it's actually a French dish), lasagna, and a bowl of soup. I didn't have time to bake a cake, so I bought two pieces of shortcake. He seemed happy with all of the food, and his satisfied expression made me feel rewarded for my effort.

Well, this will be the last birthday for just the two of us, because we are expecting a baby next year. The thought of it makes me excited of course, but I'm sure I will miss the precious time we spent together.
