Happy Birthday, Buddy!

Today's post is all about the Beau because it is his birthday and I won't be home tonight to celebrate with him :( But that is what he gets for making me work! Just kidding ... kinda.

Let me tell you about how we met.

In the fall of 2005, sweet sorority girl


meets wild fraternity boy (living his glory days)

at this particular 70's Sigma Chi/ ADPi Homecoming social at some filthy bar. Yeah, can you believe I married that?? Me neither. If you could only see the skin-tight pink corduroys he had on you would be really grossed out!

But something about me had him at hello (I am teasing honey, I was all about your get-up that night). So he stalked me for about 3 weeks until I agreed to go on a date with him (again, I kid). And after one date he knew he wanted to marry me (and that is the whole-hearted truth).


The End. :)


We have both grown so much as people in the last 3 years and I love who he is now and I love who he was then ... wild child and all!


I love that he can drink beer with the boys and that he knows and appreciates the finest of wines.


I love that he loves fishing in South Georgia and that he fell in love with New York City.


I love that he will wear Carhardts on Tuesday (okay, thats a lie ~ I don't really love that) and Citizens on Wednesday.


I love that he can talk baseball with one person and Wall Street to the next.


I love that in college he would be the first one out at night and the last one to go home ... because now he makes a point to be the first one to arrive at work each morning and the last one to go home.

I love that I can always trust his judgement ... from food to finances.

I love how much he loves me ... and I am here to be the first one to tell you that I am not always the easiest person!

I love you now, then, and forever more!!!

xoxo~
