A Birthday Adventure

This last weekend, we celebrated Husband's 29th birthday!!

Because his birthday falls during the glorious heat of the summer, there is no other way that Husband would rather celebrate his turning one year older than with camping, fishing and family. In fact, these things are the essence of his manhood; the things that make him the wonderful man he is.  Not to mention, what a great time everyone has doing these things--with him. 

He's a true outdoorsman, and I just love this about him.
He's the life of the party, and the most generous person I know.
If anyone isn't having fun, he isn't having it.
He exudes happiness, fearlessness and adventure.
He is adventure.


And even though he married himself a newbie-outdoors-woman,
he still loves me. 
Even though this last weekend was my first encounter with a worm,
he still loves me,
and smiles at me a lot.
He laughs a little, too.
But he tells me I'm tough, and that I am the very best,
and that he loves me,
and it is all that matters.


He is a wonderful father and teacher.
His daughter finds safety in him,
and has no issue with worms.
His son wants to drive his truck,
and be just like him.
She has his energy, his kindness, and outgoing spirit.
He has his strength, sillyness, and loving affection.



All in all, our life is more than I could have hoped for.
I thank God every day for binding our family in love and faith.
I thank Husband for his unmeasurable love and support that
he gives to our family each day.

He is tireless.
He is ambitious.
He's an entrepreneur.
He's a force to be reckoned with.
He's a man of God.

I LOVE my outdoorsman.

Here's to another adventurous year!

To read more about my wonderful man, read last year's birthday tribute.
I could never say enough good things about him.

That was so sweet! Makes me realize what a perfect man I have too. I love the line 'He's a man of God'...so true when you think of it (in reference to my husband as well).

Happy Birthday to your husband!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
