To My Best Friend:

Ryan didn't know I played the piano until we were married.  He didn't know I sewed.  He didn't know I am awesome at arcade games (which is why I like taking the kids to the dentist because they have the old-school-full-size Ms. Pac-man.)  He didn't know I knew how to bake something besides chocolate chip cookies. 

Ryan married me for who I am, not what I can do.  I love that about him.  He is genuine.  Passionate.  Sensitive.  Practical.  Caring.  Personable.  Funny.  He's a great dad.

He's the kind of husband who spray paints the fire hydrant in front of his house with a fresh coat of bright yellow paint because his wife mentions it is looking drab.  

I love you, love.  Happy Birthday.



  1. wonderful sentiments for a wonderful man!

  2. There's nothing better than a man with a can of spray paint to brighten up life's drab things. Have a good new year, Ryan

  3. I just noticed tiny Ryan in the background! Happy bday Ryan!


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
