While we were out to lunch on our anniversary I asked you what was the best day from the last year. Without a lot of hesitation you said it was the day after our wedding, the day we left for our honeymoon. I wore my fabulous hat from our wedding day to the airport and the white dress I had left our reception in on the plane. At least a dozen people asked us if we’d been to the royal wedding. It was high hat season.
I asked you why that was the best day and you said it was because I looked so happy. I don’t think there is a better way to explain what a sweet man you really are.
My best day was also on our honeymoon. The day before we came home was my birthday. You had a red velvet cake sent to our room. I wore my hat and my white dress again. We went out for sushi. We laughed a tremendous amount that evening. And we were headed home to our sweet girl that very next day.
Months before our wedding, before we were even engaged I tearfully told you that I wanted to have a baby before I turned 36. I confessed that I was terribly afraid of not being able to get pregnant. Always the problem solver you said “So we get married next Spring.” The rest was just implied. We would get married and have a baby. Simple.
And so we did.
And now I am 36. Today, in fact. And damn if I don’t have that baby.
Our family, you guys are my best thing….
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Guess you got your best present a few months early!!
