She was homecoming queen.

I inspired the role of Napoleon Dynamite.

She had nerdy boys offering to carry her backpack between periods.

I was in the science club.

One day, I’ll be as amazing as her. But for now, I still can’t believe I get to celebrate her birthday as “husband.”

Here’s to a sensitive, bold, fearless, selfless woman of the Spirit; here’s to the single girl I once told a friend I wanted my daughter to be like; and here’s to a woman who still takes my breath away when she walks in the room.

Happy 28th birthday my love. Here’s to your grand adventure. ch:

Chris, you’re such a man! After all, it takes a real man to tell his lady how he truly feels about her! 😀

Jenny, happy birthday, girl!! Hope you have a blast today!
