Happy Birthday, MVP!!!

Let's jump straight to the punchline.


It's about time I practice what I preach so this particular post may be slightly different.


If you've hung around for a while you know I'm all about "The 5 Love Languages".


Well, if not search back quite a few pages to learn more.


In short, the whole idea is that we tend to love people the way WE feel loved.


I'm a words person. MVP is an acts of service kind of guy. 


SO, although I SO badly want to write a poem, letter, or freakin' chapter book on how much I love this kid, I must refrain.


Rather, MVP, I've documented a few ACTS OF SERVICE for you.


I hope you chuckle, giggle, and smile for IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY and you deserve nothing but JOY today.


So... it all began with a list of things you ALWAYS do. 


Things I notice but don't say thank you for...enough. I hate to admit it, but, things you do that I take for granted.


This week I've been sneaky; I took over, because you rock!


(the list could be longer because you do WAY more!)

10. Write you a love letter, poem, chapter book. (for your sake I'll stick to a letter)


My Dearest husband, 


HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY! I know your not a words person all the time, but, I do know you enjoy it. It wouldn't be me if I completely refrained so sit back and listen to how much I love you!


There's not a day that passes that I don't think, "I'm so lucky". Really. I'm not just saying it for kicks, it's true. I prayed for you long long ago. Little did I know you were right under my nose all those years and God was preparing you and me for the right moment to finally fall crazy in love.


Who knew it would all happen from a silly game of spin the bottle???


From our first kiss to our millions of kisses everyday, I still feel crazy about you.


You my friend, are the man every dreaming girl desires.


You're handsome. You're so devoutly loyal. You're a God-fearing man. You believe faith and family are the most important things, and it shows. You're an unbelievably hard-worker. You're so stinkin' adventurous! You're passionate. You're sensitive AND manly; how? You're tender. You're sweet. You're ridiculously athletic. You're budget savvy. You're FUN! You've got this quiet wit that is so hilarious. You're super silly, for example, you'll dance around the house, speak in funny accents, and play pranks. You're a MAJOR jokester. You're damn sexy. You're willing to argue and make things right. You're a family man. You're a provider. You're a protector. You're prayerful. You're down with PDA. You're SO smart. You're also wise. You're a dog-lover. You're HOTT! You're a traveler. You're not afraid of what people think. You're confident, never conceded. You're SO humble. You're tall. You're proud to show people our love.


I could go on forever, but it's getting a bit chapter-book-ish.


I truly don't know why I'm so blessed but I thank my lucky stars every day.


I love sharing life with you. You're my closest friend, forever companion. You're my fun, my laughter, my protector, my healer, and the love of my life. YOU are amazing, but what we share as husband and wife is unstoppable.


You're my dream come true!!!


You're my baby's DADDY. WHOA! YIPPEE!!!


How amazing is that???


First we get each other, now we get to MAKE a person TOGETHER. Now that is unfathomable.


Mr. MVP, I adore you.


I love you from the East to the West.


I notice all the big and little things you do for us each and every day.


Thank you for all you do for me, for others, and for our future.


I'm blessed to call you my husband.


HAPPY STINKIN' BIRTHDAY!!!!


Let's celebrate!


hugs and kisses forever, 


kates.

PS: Halo and Baby Girl say they love you too!!!


birthday16


PPS: I hope you enjoyed your acts of service...you should know that I REALLY love you, hehe. 


Also, 


I didn't pay the bills, don't panic.
