Today is M's 36th birthday. I wish you a wonderful day, my companion, partner, fiance, baby daddy, best friend... May this next year be filled with little joys, big trips, discoveries, and happiness.
I love you, my tattooed golfer, my biker who pulls off a suit beautifully! I can't believe how we've grown. You were 29 when we were first introduced, 32 when you first kissed me, outside in the park during that glorious first day of spring, 34 when you stood by my side while I huffed and puffed and delivered an absolutely perfect baby boy who looked just like you (sorry honey but he now looks just like me!)
In the last year, you've given me the two best presents ever, which I both love for the symbol they represent: first, that stunning, eye-catching piece of bling that now permanently sits on my fourth finger, which I still look at in awe every day, and second, that inked art on your skin, which spells the initials of everyone in our little three-person-unit.
It's both fantastic and a little weird that we've somehow managed to truly become adults, not just two people playing house, but a real functioning family, don't you think? I'm so glad you're here with me. Couldn't do it without you. To many, many, many years together!
