Today is my husband's birthday.
He is my best friend. My support system. He's good at humoring my schemes and plans and boosts me when I get frustrated. Because of him, I've water skied, street performed, gone to Europe, homeschooled and blogged.
He is a romantic. Last weekend we saw Up for Father's Day. I don't know which of us was more affected by the relationship between Carl and Ellie. I know he held my hand pretty tight during the film.
He has a great sense of humor. If anyone ever downplays the importance of a sense of humor, all I can say is it has kept us going through the 20 years we've known each other. We met in 1988 and I can honestly say we are still very much in love.
Today my soulmate is 49. Happy birthday sweetheart! Wait till you see the cake I'm making for you! (I'll post a picture here later.)
Update: Here is the cake before it was totaled in the birthday nebula! I'm happy with how it turned out.
And it tasted good too. The only problem is one of the warp nacells (this is what my husband said it was) kept falling off. I probably should have only used half a cherry. Live and learn.
