Happy Birthday & Happy New Year!

I’ve written and rewritten this post a million times already. Nothing I say does justice to the feelings I have (and we have) for you.

This last week has been hard. Sick kids. No sleep. Guests. Travel. Holidays (they’re stressful man!). It all got to the best of us. But as I walked a cranky baby around, or cleaned the house for the millionth time it seemed, or sat on the kitchen floor crying, I still know you’re the best damn thing that’s ever happened to us 5 and without you, well our world just wouldn’t be the same.

You’re our:

nickname creator

tickle instigator

toy fixer (let’s be honest, it’s not just toys)

joke teller

medicine giver

finder of lost things

light bulb switcher

toothbrush flinger


homework corrector

snack maker


shoulder to cry on


made up story teller

grocery shopper

driver to and from school

peek a boo player

doctor appointment taker (so I don’t have to fess up to things..!)



You are the absolute best husband and dad for us. We all think you’re perfect and we wouldn’t be us with you. No matter where this crazy life of ours takes us, up or down (please more ups than downs) I’ll choose you every day. Without a pause, without a doubt, in everything I do, you’re my rock and I’ll keep choosing you forever.

I can’t wait to celebrate your birthday with you! 2017 is going to be an amazing year and the only way to kick it off is celebrating you!

Happy birthday l♥ve! Let’s go party!

All my love forever,





pssst…. Happy New Year everyone! Have a wonderful start to 2017!
