  • Happy Birthday to Michael!!!

I can’t believe it’s already May 7th! Again! It seems like yesterday I was telling you that you were getting OLD because you had just turned 27…. and now you’re 28!! :) It’s crazy how fast our years are flying by. It feels like yesterday we were driving to youth group on your old white maxima with the sunroof open. Sometimes I can’t believe how blessed I am to have NEVER known life without you. I can’t even imagine it. My childhood, my awkward years, my first year in high school, college….. you’ve been a part of my life during every. single. season.

And because you’ve been a part of my life since I was 2 years old, you’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly….. and yet you love me anyway. I know at times I am VERY hard to live with…. and only you see that side of me. You’re the only one that see’s me freak out… you’re the only one that see’s me when I’m afraid to fail and you’re the only one that knows all of my imperfections. You serve me so selflessly… even when you’re tired. Thank you for driving us home in the wee hours of the morning after weddings just because I like our bed better than a hotel’s. Thank you for fixing me breakfast even though you don’t even like to eat breakfast! Thank you for letting me decorate and do crazy things to our house. :) Thank you for thinking of things before I do so that when I remember I need to do them and get stressed, they’re already done. Thank you for letting me be a girl about things and having patience when I’m in a bad mood…… This really could go on forever.  There are so many reasons why I’m so blessed to have a husband like you. And while I can’t list them all… I CAN list out 28 for your 28th Birthday!! Here are 28 reasons I’m thankful that you’re my husband! :

1. You have an amazing, BIG smile.

    Aw this is too sweet! Happy birthday Michael! And the tuna fish comment cracked me up because I’m the same way with my husband. I grew up on tuna salad sandwiches and he can’t stand it. :)

    Awwww this made me tear up – You and Michael remind me so much of me and Jeremy’s relationship…as in, I can’t IMAGINE what I would do without him and all of the tiny ways he serves me every day, even when I don’t always deserve it :)
