I originally went to school to be a paleontologist. While I would still like to be doing that, I'm obviously not meant to at this point in my life. However, my love for dinosaurs is VERY real and VERY strong. Other than my family, they are my great love, especially in respect to evolution. They are the most amazing creatures to ever walk this earth and how they changed and adapted over time to lead to species we see today is astounding. It takes my breath away every time I think about it. That being said, it wasn't surprising that my husband went with dinosaurs this year, especially because Jurassic World was released onto DVD and Blu-Ray on my birthday!
He gave me a handmade teapot with a "TEA-rex" on it, a "TEA-rex" diffuser, and Jurassic World on DVD the day of my birthday. The last gift took a little longer to arrive, but it makes the living room.
Yes, that is Paul Revere, Georgia Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Abraham Lincoln riding dinosaurs. Because, you know, why not?! I do love historical figures. He went with tea and book pages because of our new library/living room. I love books and I love tea, almost as much as I love dinosaurs. Birds and foxes are next in line, which can be found all over the house as well, especially in our kitchen.
I am so thankful for my husband and even more thankful he has continued to put up with me for over 5 years. Thank you baby, for a great birthday!
