Guess whose husband got a major promotion? MINE.

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

I’m popping this bottle in honor of TechBooHusband to celebrate his major promotion at work.  It is the culmination of perseverance, patience, and  prayer. Always being the smartest guy in the room doesn’t hurt either.  I love you and am proud of you, baby!
