My love, today you turn twenty nine. When we met you were twenty, and I can’t believe we’ve been celebrating your birthday together for nearly a decade. These years have been good. For the first time, we celebrate your birthday as a family of three. I am going out on a limb while declaring this is the best year we’ve ever had. When you turned twenty eight, we were getting ready to head to Las Vegas to celebrate. We had no idea that a few weeks after that, we’d be making our beautiful daughter. From the surprise timing of our pregnancy to the moment you caught her being born, this year has been amazing. I’ve watched you change. You went from my husband to a father … You started eating more of a vegetarian diet (I find that pretty sexy) … You created a work shop & built some beautiful things … You got a rad bike that you take so much pride in … You supported me during morning sickness and a wild labor … You laughed with me … You cried with me … You loved me more than ever. Even though our life is so different (and most nights are spent cuddling on the couch), I hope you know just how amazing you are. I treasure you more than I could ever explain in a blog post. Sometimes I wonder if anyone has ever loved their partner as much as I love you. You are my world.
Happy birthday my love. Alba & I love you.
