When Stone and I were engaged and going through pre-marital counseling we took a test, which told us what our love languages were... well, my first love language was gift giving (and along with that means, making a big deal on your birthday). This is Stone's last love language. So, last year for Stone's birthday, I went all out. I got him some great gifts, wrapped them beautifully, and made reservations at a fancy restaurant in Denver. Well, on the day of Stone's birthday we ended up having to drive through a blizzard, in rush hour traffic to try and make the reservation at a restaurant Stone did not even care to be at in the first place. Needless to say, we ended up arguing the majority of the time and I learned my lesson that on Stone's birthday, less is more.
Hence, the Chipotle party.
We had a few friends over for burritos and beer at our house last night. Easy and comfortable. I even made homemade ice cream for dessert! The night was so fun, and Stone loved every minute of it, which really is what matters. I think this will be a new tradition for Stone's birthdays from here on out :)
