Today is a big birthday for the most important person in my life.

And he is a private guy…prefers not to have his picture on my blog, no mention on Facebook.

So I’ve been in an internal state of war all day about wanting to respect that aspect of him, but knowing that he appreciates the side of me that wants to needs to share, emote, and shout it from the rooftop, or the electronic version in this case. My heart wins.

He’s insanely smart,



strong and athletic,

a great sport,





a fabulous dancer,

hysterically funny and fun,

a really, really good father,

and the best friend I’ll ever have.

Happy birthday, my love. And many, many more.

Please forgive me.


Out to dinner in Saratoga with all my sweeties,
