A Celebration of Celebrations

This is a special birthday blog for my dearest wife, EB. This is the fourth birthday I have had the honor of celebrating with her, and I look forward to many, many more. She has been so good to me, and always very supportive. I can honestly say that she is the best friend I have ever had - and ever will have. To show my deep feelings to EB on her b-day, I decided that we should celebrate by doing something special. And then we celebrated. See how much fun we are having? That is EB watching the Tivo, and me, well, blogging. A great time, to be sure... I'm a terrible husband! Sorry, honey, for the lame party. But you know I love you. We went to the neighborhood grill (otherwise known as Applebee's) last night after watching The Guardian. It was a great flick and a great meal with a great person. Those of you who know EB know the joy that she is capable of bringing to the day (sometimes the wrath, too, but that's not very often, and we won't talk about it on her birthday). Here are some things I love about Elaine:

-The way she smiles with the one big dimple

-The way she loves to cook with me

-The way she is willing to let me be a little reckless with our money for the sake of little pleasures like a motorcycle, Tivo, or a 360

-The way she curls up into a little ball of snuggly love when she hugs me

-Her attitude of forgiveness when I am careless with her feelings

-Her patience with my antics and those of my more rambunctious friends

-Her love of animals

-Her charity to those who are not as fortunate

-The faith in God that she shares with me and our families and friends

-Her dedication to the tasks at hand (schoolwork especially)

-Her sense of humor - although she has freaked me out on a few occasions when she was dead serious on the outside, but really joking (she has a great poker face)

-The way she plays video games and board games with me

-Her love of reading and movie watching

This list could go on and on, but I will cut it off here for now. It is easy to see that every part of my life is affected by this fabulous female, and every part is better because of it. I love you, babe. Have a great 22nd year!
