We’ve got a steady string of birthdays in our house this time of year and sometimes I feel like Matt’s gets lost in the shuffle of the kids’ birthdays surrounding his. Friday was his birthday, though, and I want to make sure I don’t completely ignore it when he most certainly deserves some attention and celebration!
I got lucky when I married him. We balance each other out and he’s still, always and forever, the person I want to spend all my time with. He’s the reason we’re able to go on adventures, both big and small. He’s the reason my kids are good athletes and fierce competitors. He sets the bar high, and honestly, he looks good doing it.
“Reliable” isn’t exactly the most romantic of adjectives, but it should be. Reliability is hot. When Matt says he will do something, I know he will. I know I can count on him. Other people know they can count on him. He doesn’t ever, ever let me down. That’s more important than most other personality traits, and it makes me love him more every day, even if it does sound boring.
We had a quiet day celebrating him on Friday, and a fun weekend full of friends, sports, and football on Sunday. Basically all Matt’s favorite things.
So even though I am a few days late, happy birthday to my favorite person. XOXO
Also, last year was the big one!
