"You are the high in my noon, the flat in my jack, the jelly in my bean, the hop in my scotch, the fortune in my cookie, the grand in my canyon, the bees in my knees, the zig in my zag, the rock in my roll, the fox in my trot, the pow in my wow, the gee in my wiz."

Happy Birthday! A Happy 25th Birthday that is.
When I tried to come up with some clever Happy Birthday cheer to share with you and the world, all that could come to mind was the cheer you bring me. We've spent many Birthday's together, yours and mine. But this year, we are married, so I think that makes this one that much more special. And, we are in Alaska. Who would have thought. If you would have asked my little 'boys have cooties' 8 year old self if I would be married to that crazy boy across the playground with the cute little cowlick, I'm sure I would have first, gotten bright red, but then giggled and said 'no way, José'. But really, I think I knew you would always have a big place in my heart. You've always been on my mind. Always bringing those butterflies to my stomach. So fast forward some years later, and lookey here, you're stuck with me! Thank you for always loving me. Thank you for providing for our family. Thank you for bringing us to Alaska and giving me the best week ever. Thank you for reminding me that life can be a roller coaster sometimes, but I'll always have you. I love you.
Again, Happy Birthday. Remember I'll always be just that little bit older, and that little bit wiser. ;)
