Happy Birthday Mark

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”           ~A. A. Milne


Words can’t really describe how much I miss my husband.  I’ve known Mark for 7 years now, and even way back when I was calling him my “pretend boyfriend” without his knowledge, I knew there was something special about Mark.  I was hoping and dreaming of someday marrying him, but I had only scratched the surface of realizing what a truly amazing person he is.  I remember thinking many times, that I’ve never had so much fun with someone in my entire life, and 5 years of marriage, 1.5 kids, 2 weina dogs and 5 military moves later, that still rings true.

Mark is such a genuine person.  He is very kind-hearted, incredibly intelligent, extremely modest and he has a great sense of humor that comes out when you really get to know him.  He is a very attentive father and husband and he would do just about anything in his power to make his family comfortable and happy.  He really is an all-around good guy.

I’ve learned in our five years of marriage that respect plays a huge part in our marriage.  I respect Mark more than anyone else, for the person he is and for the person he makes me want to be.  I know I have changed for the better since I married Mark and I’m excited to see what the future holds for us.  I just couldn’t imagine my life without him and I am literally counting the days until he gets home (as I have been for the past 5+ months).


Happy 30th Birthday, Mark.  I love you more than anything else and I can’t wait to see you next month!  I’m ready to pick up right where we left off (except with a much more talkative 2 year old and a 7+ month pregnant belly.)  =)
