My favorite person had a birthday today. 🎈Quietly and without much fanfare, we celebrated just the way he likes it... An early morning bike ride 🚵🏼♀️ (complete with a hot air balloon rising above the fog at sunrise), a homemade hot breakfast at home 🍳, an afternoon of bowling with the fam 🎳, a dinner date to his favorite spot (with a surprise serenade from his sis and fam!🎶) and a cozy movie night🎬 in our jammies. Simple and easy, just like he is. 🎁✨
And now that the festivities are over I can't help but smile as I listen to him breathing next to me, drifting off to sleep. My heart is full of gratitude and I don't know what I ever did to deserve him.
This guy makes our world go round. He's our boys' biggest hero and the highlight of little Ava's day when he comes home. He's as good as they come~ right to his core. I can't think of anyone I'd rather be living this crazy life alongside, than this guy right here. For more than half my life we've laughed and cried, hoped and dreamed and struggled to build a life and family together. We've dug in our heels, worked our tails off, fought and made up, driven each other crazy at times, but most often and most importantly- Kept. On. Loving. He still makes me laugh the hardest and understands my heartaches more than anyone else. He's held my hand through the births of all five babies we got to keep~ and he held my heart through the three that we didn't. He doesn't always know how to fix everything but that sure doesn't ever stop him from trying. He's the hardest worker and best man I know. .
I love you, Sweets. You may have a few more wrinkles and a lot less hair, but you're still the sexiest man alive and I'm ever so glad you're mine. Happiest Birthday to you. 🎈🎉🎁💕 PC: @alpalz_ 📷✨
