Happy 29th Birthday

Happy Birthday, my love!

You are such an amazing father, husband, provider, nurturer, supporter, friend, and lover. I cannot imagine my life without you in it.
Mr. Howard's High School Graduation
When we met eleven years ago, I knew I loved you after the first week. After the first month, I knew I wanted to spend forever with you. But I never could have imagined how full my life would be with you in it, how magical and special you would make me feel, and how strong of a presence you would make in our children's lives.

A friend said to me recently, "no one meets their soul mate in middle school." I'm sure people said that about us when we met in high school. But I truly believe God created you with me in mind and vice versa.


And while our lives have changed tremendously since those first few years we were together, they have been altogether magical.

You encourage me to be silly, to have fun, and to laugh.

You encourage me to love with my whole heart and pursue my dreams regardless of how much I get paid!
You teach me to what it means to let go of the to-do lists and the cleaning and how to just enjoy time with my kids!
You inspire me to not care what people think
And how to be strong and decisive, but compassionate and heartfelt!
You love with your whole heart
And have never made me feel judged!

I know that I tell you every day how much I love you, but I do want you to know that after eleven years together I am still so in love with you. I know that marriage is a battlefield sometimes and it certainly takes soo much work. But if you'll have me, I'm willing to do the work to keep you for the rest of my life.
