Dear husband.

You turned 26 yesterday.

I had the chance to read through some of your birthday notes from family and friends; they described this incredibly smart, deeply passionate, unwaveringly driven man who is filled with such strength of character. These are things I so admire in you, and I am so thankful that I have the joy of being your wife. 

It's been happening for a long time now, this thing between you and me. Long enough that the lines between your dreams and mine have started to overlap, morph with continued discussion and shared growth. More and more I understand that what we have is such a good, larger-than-life thing, even when days are long and seasons are filled with change. 

You are my person, and we will take your 27th year by storm. I love you so.
