The woman who decided almost three years ago that she could put up with me for the rest of her life first arrived on this planet 31 years ago today. Though she didn’t know it at the time, she was destined to grow up and make me one of the luckiest men alive. Our third wedding anniversary will be this April and despite the relative youth of our marriage I already can’t imagine being apart from her. She has inspired me to grow, stretch and become a better man than I had ever thought I wanted to be, let alone could be, and all by doing nothing more than being who she is and loving me with all her heart. My life with her is a source of pride and I’m honored and flattered that she believes in me.
Happy birthday, Anne! I love you more than I could ever express in words alone.
