Happy Birthday, To My Love

Happy 26th Birthday, Mike!

IMG_1241

I love you so, so, so, so, so, so, so, SO MUCH!

We’ve been through more in the past 5 years than I ever anticipated and I feel so blessed and lucky to have found you. You brighten my days, you make me laugh, you provide me with a sense of calm and peace that no one else can, and you, my dear, are what I look forward to, every single day.

Thank you for coming into my life. It just wouldn’t be the same without you.

Here’s a little tribute to you, and many of the reasons I love you so much.

*Note to any readers besides Mike– this is a post chock full of photos. I mean business. You’ve been warned!

Happy Birthday, babe.

Enjoy your bro trip in Tahoe. Can’t wait to have you back Tuesday!

Neither can Denver– he slept by the front door for 2 hours tonight.

I love you.

Until next time.
