Happy Birthday, Jay!

November 22nd, 2011 | Ann

Dear Jay,
Happy Birthday, sweetheart! You have been through SO MUCH this past year! We started our journey of healthy living together back in October 2010.

Remember your last birthday? My family got you healthy-living gifts – swim goggles, spin shorts, etc – and we made a healthy dinner together? You jumped on the healthy living bandwagon not just for you, but also for me, and for US and our future family! You’ve pushed me to do more than I could ever imagine, and I’m so thankful to have you by my side during this journey.

You are so sweet to me, Jay. You speak so respectfully and kindly. You have patience with me when I definitely don’t deserve it. You trust me and let me trust you – and you’ve never let me down.


You make me laugh. Not just kinda-sorta chuckle, but you make me ROAR with laughter almost every day. You cheer me up when I’m sad or worried, and you make every day an adventure.

Chest Bump, obviously.

You’re excited to see me at the end of the day (as I am just as excited to see you!) and you listen when I blab about my day. You ask questions and get to know me better. You let me open up and be myself – goofy, silly, vulnerable. You understand me…. You just GET ME.


Happy birthday, my dear. I can’t think of anybody else I’d rather be spending my life with! You are a wonderful person, a great partner and husband, and I love you SO MUCH! I’m so thankful to have you in my life and I can’t wait to see what this next year will bring!

Happy Birthday!
