A Birthday Post

To my husband-

We have celebrated 12 of your birthdays together- tomorrow will be number 13.

With each birthday of yours, I can honestly say I love you a little more.

I truly am amazed and so grateful for all you do for our family and for me.

I still love dating you and love when you hold me in your arms.

I remember all the butterflies, nervousness and excitement of our first date

And now those butterflies and nervousness have been replaced with total peace and safety-- but still lots of excitement and fun too!

I look forward to the day when we have celebrated more birthdays together than we were apart before we knew each other.

And of course beyond, for the eternities.

I love you!  Happy Birthday tomorrow

Oh and I am even going to try and have the house clean for your birthday (but no promises there ;P )


Come back tomorrow and link up your Proud Mommy Moment!


  1. That's so sweet! I love that you wore overalls on your first date. ;o) Where did you guys go?

    You know Mark and I were talking about my great grandparents last night. They were married when my great grandma was 18. They were married for 79 years when my great grandpa passed away. She passed away a couple years later at 101. She was with him longer than she was single. Just thought I'd share since you stated that.

  9. So sweet! Happy birthday to your love!
