happy birthday, ben

Today is your 29th birthday, and I feel like (even though you say 29 isn’t a very important birthday) there should be some monumental and earth shattering words written to let you know just how much I love you. How much I appreciate the calm and full of finesse way you put up with my crazy. How much I adore the way you hug me, and how you save the extra good head holding hugs for when you know I really need them. How I love the awkward dance walks you do across the living room to make me laugh, and how you know when I want a Krispy Kreme doughnut (even when I say I don’t because I’m trying to be healthier). How so much of me is the way that it is because I’m along side you.

Today is your 29th birthday, and I’m not sure there is a word that encompasses all of the things I want to say. So instead, I’ll stick with a simple I love you. I know that 29 isn’t a big deal to you, but it is to me. Because this is YOUR 29th birthday, and (just in case I don’t tell you enough every day) you’re a pretty big deal to me.
