i am in the midst of recovering from a fantabulous surprise birthday weekend planned by my uber amazing better half. a weekend i am so completely undeserving of and grateful for that highlighted how incredible he is and how ridiculous i look and sound on video. seriously, y'all...it was UGLY.
picture a super screechy high pitched monkey repeating the same redundant question over and over and over...i screeched, 'are you serious?' no less than 15 times while answering my front door over and over and over as dear friends arrived from across the country to surprise crazy, unprepared (and by unprepared, i mean unshowered), one year older me.
once i got over the shock and awe and my weird high pitched voice went back to normal (margaritas really do have healing powers) i was able to relax and soak up two days of awesomeness planned by mr. awesome himself. at the end of the two days i was left feeling like id been rolled over by a giant love truck, with blessings toppling out the top and hitting me upside the head as it went by. yep. thats pretty much how it felt.
the truth is, i have the most amazing people in my life. i have parents that are my heroes and best friends. i have family that bring complete joy to my days, children that make motherhood the greatest love of my life, friends near and far that 'get' me and love me in spite of myself and then, as if all of these weren't enough, i get HIM. this incredibly great guy who doesnt age (for real) who fills up my world with love.
i could not have imagined the weight of His gift to me 12 years ago when He gave me you. i could not have seen what the future would hold for us nor the ebbs and flows that life had in store. i simply could not see a future without you in it. and what i want you to know is i am so profoundly grateful that God, in His infinite wisdom and unmatched generosity answered prayers i had yet to pray when He made you the one id do life with. thank you. thank you for making me the luckiest woman in the world and bringing buckets of love and balance and kindness to my days. you are over the top ahhmazing and i am over the top amazed.
