He Might Hate This Day, but I Love It

Brent’s Birthday is the last thing that Brent wants to talk about. He may not like this day, the attention kills him, but for me? I love it.

I love that it’s a day specifically about celebrating him. His big heart, and his ability to make anyone laugh. I love celebrating how smart he is, and how hard he works for our little family. I love celebrating his willingness to go on any adventure, and his willingness to just stay home and cuddle.

I know I married a good man, when he still calls me beautiful, even when I haven’t showered for a couple days week.  Or, how I have cooked zero meals since we’ve been married (unless you consider cereal or Mac N’ Cheese making dinner…). I’m so blessed to have married a man that lets me sleep in on the weekends, and understands that he will always drive to our dates/church/anything because I’ll be putting my makeup on in the car (running late maybe?). Brent is a man that will get up to get me a glass of water, simply because I’m too cozy on the couch. He watches Disney movies with me, and pretends he knows the words to every song. He challenges me to see myself through his eyes, and makes me step out of my comfort zone.  Brent’s goal is to strive after a life like Christ, and love me like Jesus.  He supports my dreams, and encourages goals.

Our marriage isn’t perfect, but I married a man that is perfect for me. A man that, life would just be weird without.

Brent, I know you don’t like this day…but…too bad. Because I (and so many others) love it. We love celebrating you, and your big ol’ heart. I can’t wait to spoil you, and make you roll your eyes at all the attention.

Here’s to another trip around the sun, babe. Happy birthday! I love you!

PS – We’re celebrating this weekend with fun adventures (he doesn’t know what yet!) for just the two of us. And, well, since we are big into activities we can do together, he definitely didn’t want refused any ‘real’ gifts. However, I couldn’t help myself from looking through these! Aren’t they all the perfect gift for the guy in your life? And they are all under $75! BOOM.
