Five years ago today we spoke for the first time.
You were turning 29 then. I, 23 1/2.
We have spoken every day since.
We have spent hundreds and hundreds of days together.
We have dated, married, and birthed two children.
We have seen children grow.
We have developed new talents encouraged by the other.
We have slept side by side, often with a baby or two as well.
We have walked and danced and explored.
We have flown across the country and the ocean.
We have occasionally quarreled, but never held a grudge.
We have grown into more interesting people.
We have loved, loved, loved.
How blessed we are.
How blessed I am to have your love.
To have you.
Happy Birthday, Jared.
I love you more.
