Happy Birthday to my Husband!

You can't see them, but in this photo taken three years ago on my husband's (then boyfriend's!) birthday weekend, we were sitting on horses. Now does the cowboy hat make sense? My husband happened to be doing some training in Oklahoma at the time and I was a senior in college. I flew down to be with him for his birthday and we went horseback riding on an Oklahoma ranch! This Army life has afforded us some adventures, that's for sure.

Today's birthday plans include a delicious dinner, extended family, German Chocolate Cake, election updates, and lots of love. A big happy birthday to my handsome cowboy!

If ever two were one, than surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

-Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672)
