Happy birthday to my love, my best friend and just a downright absolutely amazing human being. I’m blessed to call you mine and so excited to celebrate you this weekend! I love you to the moon and back and know this is going to be your best year yet.
I cook dinner much of the time. It’s just naturally how it happens. I don’t have a 9-5 at the moment, so I gladly cook for my hard-working husband. He cleans the dishes and the kitchen post-dinner so it’s a fair trade, I say. He does cook occasionally, I mean, he used to be “Chef Adam”.
He actually worked as a pastry chef at Emeril’s restaurant at Universal City Walk in Orlando. The first time I developed a little crush on him was when he cooked for a large group of our friends. I was highly impressed! Guys our age didn’t really cook such fanciful meals. So he can definitely cook, that guy and that’s a talent of his I don’t get to reap the benefits from enough.
This week Adam seemed to get a new energy for cooking and wanted to try some new recipes. Needless to say, I was more than happy to oblige.
I must say, I think he’s after my job. We’ve been eating quite well this week. Oh just the best baked chicken tenders I’ve ever had, the most delicious turkey burgers and lasagna with pancetta, mushrooms and ground turkey. It just hit me today how spoiled I’ve been this week. Spoiled!
He mentions starting a food blog on occasion and, well, I think he should. He’s a culinary hero in this household. Thank you for the delicious food the last few nights, husband. You make the cleaning after dinner well worth it.
Today, April 19th, is Adam’s birthday. My man is another year older today. He’s waking up three hours away from me this morning for work, but I want him to find this waiting for him.
Adam, thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for loving me even after I hit “publish” on this and post that picture of you sleeping on my shoulder for the third time. I’m sorry you hate it, but I absolutely love it.
Thank you for your humor, for making me laugh and for cheering me up just when I need it the most.
Thank you for working so hard everyday at your career. You inspire me.
Thank you for never making me feel silly about my big dreams. For being willing to be the subject of many songs yet to be written. I hope to make you proud.
You’re my favorite and I love you with my whole heart. Happy birthday and here’s to many, many, many more!
( Oh and because putting pugs in your birthday post is becoming a tradition, here you go. )
