Happy Birthday Ian

^^ Getting "help" opening his presents

I feel like I would be doing a disservice if I didn't even mention this amazing man and the fact that he celebrated another year of life. Like in real life, the kids take up a lot of my blog. But this man, the one that is so patient with all of us, the one who is always ready to take on my quirky ideas and go on whatever adventure I drum up, is pretty dang amazing. I fell hard for him seventeen and a half years ago. And I fall even harder for him today. I literally can't imagine my life without him. He is my best friend. It's crazy to think that we have been together half his life. 

I had booked a babysitter for Ian's birthday a month ago. We haven't been able to get out much since Callum came along and I miss having along time with this guy. I wanted to make sure we had his birthday to enjoy. I was so looking forward to a nice, slow evening out and coming home to the kids all tucked into bed. Unfortunately, a child vomiting left us scurrying home to the poor babysitter. Either way, I still enjoyed the time we had together. And I love the sense of "team" that I feel between us when we are dealing with the kids. 

Ian, I love you don't seem like enough. But I really do. I love the passion you have for your cars…and for your coffee. I love how you always push me to be a better me. I love how you love on our kids. And I love that still, after all these years, you give me a back massage whenever I ask…and even when I don't. You are an amazing man Ian Grimbleby. Here's to many, many more years of doing life with you!
