The only minor problem was that after jumping for joy, I kind of landed on our food.
But just the corner of the box! I didn't destroy anything edible, thank God. Anyway, at home, MC gave me one of my birthday presents: A pair of gorgeous, antique, 1920's brass book ends depicting Cupid and Psyche. ♥
The particular scene pictured is the moment when Psyche, having been sent to the Underworld for yet another test to earn the right to be with her beloved, has been overtaken by a sleeping spell hidden in the box she brought back, so Cupid flies to her, takes her in his arms, and brushes the sleep from her eyes to break the spell. It's my favorite part of the story, imagining Psyche opening her eyes to such joy and relief to see Cupid there with her.
MC also wrote me a new poem -- as if I weren't overflowing with joy already. :)
Oh, and he also got me these cheeky 1980's wing earrings! They look just like something out of a Patrick Nagel illustration and I love them. Wings are a big theme with us. :)
And did I mention that when we arrived at the house that night, sitting on our deck was a jar of home made honey and some beautiful flowers, left by the beautiful and vibrant Erica from Farmstead Vintage? It was so sweet and surprising and JUST like her.
In short, it was a WONDERFUL birthday!
So wonderful, that on a totally unrelated note, I'm just going to point out how hot my husband is!
Damn, Matt Collar. Damn.
