Happy 30th Birthday, My Love


The winter weather is starting to warm and the snow outside is beginning to melt.  These past few days have been bitter cold but today the snow has turned to a light mist and it’s almost comfortable outside without a coat.  You are sitting upstairs reading your newest book that you love.  A love story that has you so absorbed these past few days and you have stayed up reading long after I have gone to bed.  Your peaceful piano music is softy drifts through the walls of our apartment.  And while I write this downstairs, I know you are warmly bundled up with our puppy on the couch.  None of this is unusual for our home with one thing out of the ordinary, today is your birthday.  And not just any birthday, it is your 30th birthday.

So much has happened since the first time we celebrated your birthday together.  Do you remember?  Upon reflection, I first thought it was the time I drew the ladybug on my apartment whiteboard with the words “Happy Birthday Leidybug” above it.  But that was actually the second time.  The very first time was during medical school.  Even though we were in class and at school, I wanted to make the day special for you so I made you rice crispy treats and left them in your locker with some decorations.  I often wonder what you thought of me then.  Some crazy hopeless romantic guy that very probably creeped you out.  No wonder you wouldn’t date me for years!

Even back then, I knew deep down inside you were the one.  There was something so special.  Something indescribable about you that I was drawn to and I still am today.  I know I have said this in the past, but I didn’t believe in soulmates before you.  I certainly do now.  Everything we have done has felt right and meant to be.  Little did I know then that our marriage would turn out to be life’s greatest adventures.  One that we would embark on together, forever.  And it all started with rice crispy treats in a locker and the spark of love that you have ignited in this man’s heart.

Back then I thought I couldn’t like you any more than I already did.  Today, when I look you in the eyes and you ask me “What are you thinking about?”, I am thinking I couldn’t possibly love you more than I already do.  But you continue to amaze me.  Our life continues to amaze me.  So who knows where our adventure together will take us next.

So here is to our 4th birthday together and a lifetime of love and happiness to go.

I love you forever,
