Happy Birthday Kyle.

To My Amazing Husband,

I know you don't like necessarily like cards but I couldn't let your birthday pass by without telling you how I feel. I know that I tell you I love you all the time, but sometimes I really don't think you understand how much I appreciate you and how glad I am that you are in my life. I don't think you understand that each and every day with you is an absolute gift and that I don't regret a single moment or day with you. You are hands down my favorite person in the entire world and I am so glad that you came into this world when you did. I am so glad that I happened to stumble upon meeting you when I probably wasn't supposed to and I'm so incredibly glad that I took a chance on me and you because it was the best chance I ever took... I truly believe you are my soul mate and I wouldn't want to be experiencing all the amazing things in my life if I couldn't experience them with you.

Honestly, one of my favorite memories with you to look back on is any time we have been to the ocean together. Every time we go, you are the first into the water and you don't even hesitate. You run straight in without any fear because you are so dang excited. And every single time.. I hesitate to get into the water. Not because I don't love the ocean; quite the opposite and you know that. But because it's cold. However, my favorite memories are when I choose to run in with you because it is so much fun and we have had some of the goofiest memories just playing in the waves together. That was one of the most healing and amazing parts of our cruise to Mexico. When we finally found that beach and just ran in.. I think that's when I realized that everything was going to be okay because I had you by my side. This is just one example of how you brighten and enrich my life. Your willingness to embrace life makes me a better person on a continual basis and I don't think my life would be this amazing if I didn't have you as a constant example of how to let go and just live in the moment.

I couldn't be more proud to call you my husband and to have you as a daddy to our daughter.  I know that you are going to teach her so many things and that you are going to love her just as much as you love me. So, my sweet husband, I love you.. but that is not all I wanted you to know today. I am so happy that you were born, but I wanted you to get a little glimpse of just why I am.
