All in all, August was a great month. Both the Hubbins and I had birthdays this month, so we've had a great time celebrating with each other. On my birthday, which was the 17th, he surprised me by coming home on his lunch break with flowers, a gloriously-decadent chocolate cake, and the news that he had the rest of the day off to spend with me. It was an awesome day. :)
How was your August?
