Dear Parker: Happy Birthday!

Dear Parker,

Happy happy happy birthday! I know that birthdays aren't a huge deal to you but they are to me because I am so glad you came into this world 25 years ago. I bet you were a pretty cute baby but you have turned into a pretty good-looking young man, too. 

I feel so proud to be your wife. You've done so much in the past 25 years already - graduated from high school and college, worked hard to provide for us, made family your priority, and (the most important one) married me :) I can't even imagine what the next 25 years have in store for you.

I'm so glad your 25 years of life have taught you how to make a good pot of coffee and the tricks to get the garbage bag in that fricken stainless steel can that I don't know if I'll ever figure out. I'm so glad you've learned the best ways to navigate a grocery store for meal-planning and that a smile can change someone's day. I really don't know what I'd do without you in this world.

Let's be honest, we both know I'd probably starve and have caffeine withdrawals.

You are a person who wears his heart on his sleeve and dreams bigger than anybody else I know. You are a compassionate and motivated man who can make me belly-laugh in the kitchen. This world is so lucky to have you and I can't wait to see what the next 25 years bring. Happy Birthday, babe!

Love, Sammy
