Today is a special day! This is the 10th time I’ve had the chance to celebrate May 23rd for the amazing day that it is… the day you came into the world! So today, I want to tell you that even after the almost 10 years we’ve been together, I love you & I like you too!
I love you & I like you because you sing in the shower like no one can hear you. You’re fearless and amazing!
I love you & I like you because you take such great care of our family. You’re willing to clean out Cooper’s ears, and shave him when he gets a hot spot in the summer time.
I love you & I like you every time I walk out the door and you tell me to “Wear your seatbelt, go slow, check your blindspot, and stay in the right lane” even if I’m only driving down the street.
I love you & I like you because you always make us take a walk on the sea wall. It’s calming, refreshing, and always needed to recharge our souls.
I love you & I like you because you take comfort in traditions… like brunch at Atticus on Sunday mornings or watching Bones while we eat dinner. Could there be a stranger way to start a meal that with a gooey murder?
I love you & I like you because we have entire conversations where we fully understand each other while you rinse with mouthwash.
And most of all I love you & I like you because there is no one else I’d rather spend every day with, especially May 23rd!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!
