Happy birthday to my love!!

If there is one birthday this year that I am dying to write about it's this one: Jason's!!! Today he is 25 years old and we are the same age for 13 days (yeah yeah, I'm a cougar...get over it!). Not only do I love celebrating birthdays and special occasions but my absolute favorite is Jason's. I feel like it's one of the few days of the year where I can gush about how much I love him, how incredible he is, etc. without getting too much crap for it. Besides, if you're uncomfortable with me going on and on about my husband and mushy pictures, this is probably not the right blog for you!

So where do I start with Jason? There's so much I could say and that I want you to know about him. He's my best friend, my confidant, my greatest cheerleader and the perfect match for me. He's so smart and one of the hardest workers I know. He makes me incredibly proud.

This is the first picture we ever took together!

Don't we look so young and NERVOUS in that picture?? It's so funny thinking that point all I knew about Jason was that he came highly reccommended by my sister, Mandy, he was fun to talk to and really, really cute (obviously! ;)).

Pretty sure I got him beat here! ;)

We immediately shared a connection with each other and that summer was one of the very best of my life. We had so much fun, stayed up way too late talking and that was definitely the start of us falling in love.

I love this picture of us! We look so happy and I think the spark between us is pretty clear.

Jason, do you remember the time you took the mega bus to see me and rode all night from Chicago to get to Minneapolis at 5AM just to leave at 10PM that night and ride all night back to Chicago?? I think that's when I started to get how serious the feelings you felt for me were. You have always made me feel so incredibly special and loved...I know that will never change.

Just a few minutes after getting my foot pop going on and everything!! :)

The day he asked me to marry him was absolutely amazing! He completely suprised me and although I was anticipating and hoping we'd get engaged soon it still blew my mind how blessed I felt when I realized I was going to spend my life with this man.

Probably the greatest thing I've experienced in our marriage is just the evolution of us as people. I know that I have become a better person in every area of my life. There are so many times I want to act a certain way but catch myself because I know Jason deserves better. He pushes me to be the woman that God created me to be and encourages me on a daily basis. I hope I do the same for him.

Married for one day and what do we do? Go to a Packer/Bears game! duh.

Jason is the man that I respect most in my life. He is so wise and when I have questions or concerns I run to him for his opinion. One of the things that I love about him is how supportive and helpful he is. No matter what I'm going through he is always right there beside me.

Jason is the best husband I could have ever imagined and I love our life together! I always have the most fun whether we're out with friends or staying home playing uno. He really is my best friend and my favorite person in the whole world.

Jason, I am honored to be your wife.
You are the husband that I prayed for even years before I met you and I am so incredibly thankful that God brought us together.
Thank you for everything that you do for us and how hard you amaze me!

I love you and can't wait to spend every day for the rest of my life with you.

Happy birthday!!!

  1. You guys are too cute! Love and miss you both. But I would just like to say that while Mandy may take credit for getting you two together, she's got nothing on us! We were telling Jason about you LONG before she was telling you about him! :)
