Happy Birthday Dan!

Baby husband

It's my husband's birthday today, so I thought I'd write a quick note to him on here, in public... It seems like a good idea right now, but we'll see how I feel about this in the morning!

Happy birthday beautiful Dan. I probably don't say this enough, but I love and appreciate you so much. From the very beginning of our relationship when you were barely 20, you've looked after me, supported me, and entertained me. We can talk and talk together for days, even if we do sometimes tell each other the same story more than once, or vehemently agree with one another... both arguing on the same side of the debate. You're a kind and generous human being; you are overflowing with boundless affection and tenderness for everyone you meet (except for people who stop walking very suddenly in front of you on a busy street... and wasps). I am very grateful to have met you and to be able to say with certainty, that we will always comfort one another when we're sad, and rejoice together when we're happy.

We've got a lot of stress coming up, what with this house-move falling at every hurdle, but I know that we will be okay because you're pragmatic and hilarious - a winning combo in a crisis.

Also, a big shout out to Dan's sister Bex. (Somehow, they both ended up with the same birthday, five years apart. That's Bex and Dan in the photo above) Bex, you're a schnügly tinosphere and I love you lots. In the words of Kierkegaard, "You don't know you're beautiful - that's what makes you beautiful."

  1. Aww how lovely is this? Just the absolute sweetest! I can imagine Dan will be just thrilled to read such gorgeous words from you :) You guys sound really perfect for one another, and with so much negativity going on in the world, it makes such a wonderful change to read something so positive and heartfelt <3

    1. They did, I think! :) And it's a family joke that their parents only do the deed once a year...!

  12. Wise words from Kierkegaard! Yay, happy birthday to Dan and his sister! Amazing that they managed to have the same birthday - that must have reduced any jealousy growing up! Hope you two had a lovely celebration yesterday :)

    1. They say that they definitely think having the same birthday is better than having a birthday one or two days apart!
