My favorite person turns another year older today.
I feel like every birthday we celebrate together keeps getting harder and harder to top. I mean how can you possibly find the right level of festivities to honor the person who has given you everything you’ve ever wanted? We’ve done trips to Bend, New York, pub crawls, wine tasting, Mexico…and this year we just did dinner. And I know it’s not my birthday, but for me, this was one of my favorites. As I looked around the table at all of our friends who have become such a big part of our life I couldn’t help but be filled with so much pride. Pride that my husband has built this amazing community of people who love him (and us) so much. The table last night was filled with college friends, work friends, single friends, married friends, and relatively new friends… All these awesome people who have helped create the story of his 36 years. And we didn’t take a bunch of shots or go somewhere crazy extravagant, we just talked. And laughed. And it was good.
Chris is a different guy than the 30 year old I first met. Different in a good way. A grown-up way. A way that gets me excited to see what’s next. In my wildest dreams I could never have imagined that my life could be this good. And I have my husband to thank for it. His dreams, passion and ambition inspire me every day.
Happy Birthday Chris. I love you. I can’t wait to build more dreams with you.
