Happy birthday to Mr. Two Pretzels!

I love this day.

Today is the day when I have unspoken permission to sing the praises of someone who most comfortably remains unsung.

I feel like I've said it all before, but it bears repeating.

Instead of writing to him, or to his Mom, I thought I'd write to you, my readers.

Ah-hem.

Dear friends,

I wish that you find someone who laughs at your jokes. All of them.
I wish that you find someone who religiously gets up everyday to make your children perfectly fluffy and folded cheese omelets or pink pancakes with sprinkles.
I wish that you find someone who makes you laugh.


I wish that you find someone who shows up when he says he's going to show up; emotionally and physically.
I wish that you find someone who is so cute that you find yourself saying 15 years later, "He's so cute..."
I wish that you find someone who dreams and creates


 I wish that you find someone who you can tell your secrets and know that they are more safe than safe.
I wish that you find someone who says, "Just message me when you're home; I'll carry in the groceries."
I wish that you find someone who is confident enough that he never competes with anyone else.


I wish that you find someone who is deliberate and concentrated and thoughtful.
I wish that you find someone who you love so much your heart aches and your organs begin shutting down the minute the thought crosses your mind that you might not be together forever.
I wish you find that someone who is the right combination of strong and sensitive.


I wish that you find someone who melts when his girls hug him.
I wish that you find someone who thinks when you can't; who reacts when you can't.
I wish that you find someone who truly is your everything.

I am so very thankful that I have. I've been so blessed by this man.

Husband I love you so much. I am so glad that you were born.

Happy birthday!

Love,
Your [wordy] first wife

P.S. Hopefully this post makes up for the fact that I "made you" a bag of Doritos and Sol with clamato for dinner. :) You can't have it all. :)
