Another year older

Not me.  I  turned 30 in June and I intend to stay that age for the next few years. Dan, however, is free to continue aging. In fact, I love it. The older he gets, the younger I feel. Thanks baby. So with much pleasure on my part, I’d like to say happy birthday to my beloved husband! My big love muffin turns 35 today. With all joking aside (at least for a little bit) I’d like to tell you a little bit about the man I love.

Dan is a kind hearted person with a gentle soul. He’s easy to be around and will just go with the flow. Some will say he’s on the quiet side, but start talking about a topic he loves (ahem football) and you may not be able to get a word in. He’s so loving and sweet and really is my perfect counterpart. He puts up with me and the things I make him do for my own amusement, like this


and this


and this


and this.


He takes risks like this


and still manages a smile when things don’t go so well.


He looks forward to our Halloween costumes.

He’s amazing on the piano.


He loves a good game night.


He loves beanies and actually wears the ones I make him.


Football is his passion. He’s currently 6 – 0 in his fantasy league #proudwife

He plans amazing birthday weekends.

When things like this happen…


he steps in to protect me.


And last but certainly not least, he’s just so devastatingly handsome.


Happy birthday Dan. I love you and appreciate you so much!
