My darling husband is turning 30 today! I want to wish him the happiest of birthdays – he deserves it!
J and I are so much alike in some ways and then complete opposite in others. Maybe that’s why we work so well together. I’m logical when it comes to everything but my emotions – that’s when J steps in. He keeps me calm and level-headed when I start to get overwhelmed. He lets me complain when I need to, but knows when enough is enough.
One of the first qualities that really attracted me to him was the fact he didn’t let me walk all over him. He’s strong-willed and I appreciate that so much in a man. He didn’t let me get away with anything (not like I tried that much!) and always made me think before I acted. I know it’s crazy to think I was really attracted to him because he put me in my place, but it’s true. He stood up to me when no one else would. He wasn’t afraid of hurting my feelings when telling me the truth, but he always had a pretty-kind way of letting me know I had crossed the line.
Another quality that I love about him is his tenderness. He’s sweet to me and he’s sweet to the dogs, which is a huge plus for me. Especially when I see him becoming a Dad.
During our first New Year’s together I had invited a bunch of friends over to my apartment to have a low-key night. After some wine and beer drinking, a glass had shattered on the floor. I was trying to get it cleaned up and remember my dog was walking around. I was worried that she may hurt her paws on the shattered glass. I looked up and there was J, he had scooped up my precious Maggie into his arms and was carrying her around so she wouldn’t hurt her paws. He was even telling her it was going to be okay so she wouldn’t get overwhelmed by all of the chaos.
My heart melted. Without hesitation, he knew the most important being to me was Maggie and he took care of her.
I know he will do the same for our son and I can’t wait to see how great of a Dad he will become.
Happy birthday, J! You are the man I want to spend the rest of my days with. I can’t wait to continue to grow and become a stronger family unit. You are the best! Happy 30th!
