Yes, you read that right! It is a running joke in our family. 5 years ago today, Richard's birthday we got engaged. We were setting up his house for a housewarming/birthday party for him. He walked up behind me and asked if I had everything I needed... I said... "well can you hand me" and yes I stopped mid sentence because I turned around and he was holding the ring box. (I knew it was coming eventually as he'd taken me ring shopping and actually the next day we were going to look at locations for the wedding.) He then told me... Now we both have everything we need (o:
Fast forward one year, I jokingly asked him what he was going to buy me for his birthday. So he went out and bought me a ring pop and wrapped it up for me.
The year after that, we closed on our house the day after his birthday
The year after that, we brought home Blake from the hospital
Last year, well his birthday is now lost in the shuffle of Blake's birthday.
But, yesterday I again asked him... so what are you buying me for your birthday??
Richard is the best. He and I compliment each other very well. We are so different in so many ways, but we never let our differences interfer in our love for each other. We've learned that together we are a strong team. He is everything I always wanted in a husband and so much more!
Happy Birthday Richard. You are the love of my life and always will be. I jokingly ask you all the time "what am I going to do with you?" and your answer is true... love me forever!
