you say it's your birthday...

Twenty-eight years ago today a very special person was brought into this world. He was the youngest of three, but the biggest baby (size wise) his mother had given birth to. That wouldn't last. He would take after his father and be the thinnest of the siblings. He had these big, beautiful blue eyes that would change to grey when he was down and at a young age he found a passion for music—something that would stay with him forever.

He is as shy as the day is long, but talented to no end. I swear there is nothing he can't do. He plays the guitar, the drums, dabbles on the keyboard, he's a writer, a landscaper, and can fix anything he puts his mind to. In one word, he's amazing. We met many moons ago when he was probably in eighth grade. His brother and I were close friends and that's how I came to know him. When he was a freshman in high school—and I was a senior—I'd pick him up each day on the way to school. When he graduated the two of us took a trip down to North Carolina—to meet up with a life-long friend of his—and then to Myrtle Beach. It was amazing how in sync and connected we were to one another, but we remained just friends. It would still be a couple of years before our feelings for each other would shift into something deeper. December 30, 1999 was our first kiss—I'll never forget it. From that moment on, we were pretty much inseparable. Now, he's not only my best friend, but my husband, my soulmate, and my baby's daddy.


Happy Birthday Josh. You're the best.
