Happy Birthday, my love.

Today you turn twenty eight, I am so happy and grateful and thankful that our lives crossed paths and I get to share this day and every other day with you. The past four years we have grown together, I am so proud of the man that you are and I love you more than I ever thought was possible. The truth is, I wouldn't be half the person I am today without you. You've taught me to be patient, to be confident and most importantly, you've taught me to always see the good in everything and everybody. You make me feel safe and secure, needed and special, wanted and loved. You're so much more than I ever hoped for, you're kind, generous, loving and when I'm with you it never feels like there's a piece of the puzzle missing. You make me smile, you make me laugh until I cry and even when you leave things on the floor that I trip over, or leave cupboard doors wide open (is this a boy thing?!) I can't even pretend to be mad for more than 5 seconds.

Ever since the first day we met, that chance meeting, I had a feeling we were on to something special. It's like it was all meant to be, living hundreds of miles apart surely meant we shouldn't have met, but we did. Maybe it was fate? Maybe it was good luck? But whatever it was, I'm so happy that it brought us together.

You make me feel like anything is possible. You tell me I'm silly when I'm being stroppy, you (sometimes) let me win when I'm being stubborn and you give me that little smile when I'm being grumpy that says stop it grumpy, lets go and enjoy the day. You bring out the best in me, always. You make me excited for the future. For our future. Sure we don't have all the money in the world. Sure we can't manage to squeeze in tropical holidays every year. Sure some days are really bloody difficult to get through. But none of those things matter because we have each other and even though life isn't a fairytale, it's okay because I wouldn't want to go through things with anyone else. I can't wait for the future, to spend the rest of my life with you, to get married and have some babies. When the time comes I'll be crossing my fingers so tightly for a little boy because I know how excited you'd be to play planes with him and take him camping, even though I've told you little girls can like those things too! Yeah, I'm pretty excited for our future. And, you know, the present isn't so bad either! ♥

Happy Birthday, sweetheart. 
I love you.
