Today I'm writing happy wishes for my husband, Derek. It's his birthday today! Derek,
Happy Birthday! For some reason, as I've been planning for your birthday I can't help but remember your 19th birthday. It was the summer after high school and we went to Coulon Park. And despite getting ready to go to college, you climbed onto the slide (which you were much too big for) and went down. I have an image of your smile so big that day. 12 years later we are still going to the park, but now with little ones in tow. Yet, here you are spinning on the merry-go-round with that same big smile. I love that the "kid" in you still shines through.
I love what an amazing father you are. They may test our patience, but you light up talking about them, and they light up when they see you. That makes me a proud wife and mother.I love the man you are today. Avid golfer (who one day I will beat....even if you only have your putter and you're blind folded), runner, hiker, rock climber. But you are also kind, patient, loving, and the kid's and my rock.I love that after 13 years (and two kids) we still laugh together. Here's to many more birthdays of laughter and love.
Happy wishes for you on your birthday, Derek.
I love you,
