By far the biggest blessing God has given me (besides my salvation) is my husband, Michael. Words can't begin to describe the special relationship we have. He is truly the one that my heart longs for, the one that I love to laugh with, the one I need when I'm sad and the other half of my heart and soul. How beautiful and amazing is God's gift of marriage? The Lord has provided me with exactly who I needed. Someone who understands me like no one else. My rock and my best friend in the world.
I am so incredibly thankful that God gave me you, Michael. I hope you know how much I love you with everything I am.
Okay, in true Michael fashion I'll wrap up the mushy stuff and get to the fun stuff. Let me tell you, we take birthdays very seriously around here. And I have to admit, it is mostly my fault as I have always been a birthday diva... so naturally some of that has rubbed off on Michael in the past 6 birthdays we've spent together. Here's a little birthday timeline from age 22-26... 27 pictures to come!
And to keep true to tradition, here is birthday diva # 2's fun-filled 27th birthday week!
Sunday, 2/24: To celebrate his birthday we started this past Sunday at my grandmothers with some of his favorite foods & gifts from my family.
Tuesday, 2/26: Today, his actual birthday, we ate Flood Cake for breakfast (after me and Bella worked hard in the kitchen the night before, see pictures below) and are going to his parents for dinner and presents tonight.
Wednesday, 2/27: Some of his friends are taking him to golf tomorrow & guys night at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Friday, 3/1: I'm throwing him a High School Flashback Birthday party with all of our friends! Think dress code as your favorite high school stereotype, old music, and more.
Saturday, 3/2: Dinner with my parents (we always go out to eat with just my immediate family... and he's part of that now!)
Let the fun begin. I told you, we are major birthday people! :)
Happy birthday Michael! I love you sweet husband and hope you have the best birthday yet!

- Hi, welcome to our blog! We are newlyweds living in Memphis, TN. We love life, adventure and of course each other. We're starting a blog to keep track of any and 'all things Jacques' so we can look back and cherish memories from our first year of marriage. We'll be sharing memories, I'm sure a lot of our dog Bella, favorite recipes, books, trips, spiritual thoughts, home projects, and anything we're enjoying in life at the moment! We hope you enjoy as well. Much love, Michael and Rachel Jacques
