Today holds a special meaning to us. Not only is it your birthday, but it’s also the day we met eight years ago. I showed up to your birthday party in your backyard as a neighbor and left with a mild crush. For this reason, I look forward to your birthday every year. It reminds me of the times when we were young and still very foolish. You turned 24 and I was just a 23 year old with a lot of spunk.
As each year passes and we grow older together, I remember that day we first met. Admittedly, it took a while for us to appreciate each other’s distinct personalities. I suppose that’s what happens when you meet in your early 20’s. But a lot has happened since then. We’ve traveled, raised a puppy, got engaged, got married, started a business and we’re now building our dream home together.
I have your birthday to thank for the memories and accomplishments we’ve built together. Without it, we may have never met. So, today we not only celebrate you turning another year older, but for us being together another year as well.
Happy birthday, Patty O!
