happy birthday to my best friend today!

May 21, 2011

Lake side fun

Happy birthday, T.! Today, my husband celebrates another birthday and I celebrate another year of having him in my life. A little blog post cannot express how much he means to me or how happy he makes me but I will try to communicate some of that anyway.

The past six+ years that we’ve shared together have been the best. We’ve learned to read each other’s moods and whims, to support each other through life’s challenges, to be each other’s biggest fan, and – when necessary – most honest (yet kind) critic.

T, you’ve introduced me to camping and have made a life long fan of it out of me. You’re the reason I got back on a bike as an adult and you’re the one who convinced me to sign up for a day of riding 70 miles despite my trepidations (which I then loved and can’t wait to do again!). You’re always encouraging me to step outside my comfort zone and cheering me on to do things I didn’t think I could do.

You’ve baked me a cake on every birthday since we’ve met, your creations getting more elaborate and delicious with each passing year.

And you’ve traveled to Europe with me and met my family in Romania, learning to speak to my grandparents in their native tongue, embracing the culture I grew up in, and making me feel like you had been there all along.

I hope that I can make you feel as special today on your birthday (and every day) as you make me feel ever since we met. Happy birthday, my best friend and dear partner in life! ♥

    What a lovely tribute to your husband on his birthday! I can’t wait to do my go out on long distance ride someday. I haven’t gone much more than 20 miles at a time & would love to participate in an organized (but casual) ride.

    What a wonderful companion, soul mate, and future husband to be. Give him a kiss for me.

    Happy Birthday! I feel the same way about Don (more or less, alter some of the details). It’s even better now that we have Dexter and I can see that he takes after Don in behaviour – it makes me happy and proud!
