My best friend, my partner, my love made another full circle around the sun yesterday and the boys and I wanted to give him a little local love! I got up at 5:30 in the morning to make some mini-pie jars, blackberry flavor to go with an omelet for breakfast. We had to sneak out and pick some quick flowers and then woke him up by pouncing on him in bed!
Among his other presents we got him a signed copy of a fabulous book done by a local fiddle favorite Howard Marshall. Not only is this book a fabulous chronicle of old time fiddle music in Missouri, but it is also wonderful for storytelling. It comes complete with a CD and I think is going to be much enjoyed by my music playing and loving husband.
I can't say enough great things also about our local letterpress 1Canoe2 that makes amazing goods. It is so great to see them become so successful and also to have them local so I can get their wares in our downtown shops.
So big happy birthday to my fella that is the truely the pickin to my grinin!
