Well, today is Camera Guy’s birthday. I don’t want to seem silly but truly, I think the world of my guy! He just makes my cup runneth over!
Hey, if I ever needed an excuse to gush, let his birthday be it 🙂
How to describe him in a nutshell, in a brief blog post giving him due honor and gratitude to sharing his life & love with me? Well here goes:
The most self-giving person= letting me eat the last chips in the bag, even though he wants them
A true man of patience= not flinching when I pluck his eyebrows
A curious soul= for googling the history of everything right down to pleated pants
The diplomat= for being able to take my frazzled schedules and organize everything into color coated to-do lists
A hard worker= for commuting to NYC for work each day
A perfectionist= for tweaking almost anything crafty I do if it is crooked.
A man of good taste= for consistently "doctoring" up my food when I’m not looking
A relaxed person= so relaxed, he can’t even open the hamper to put his clothes in, he just piles them on top
A funny man= for the thousands of times he quotes Aladdin, or acts like Michael Scott (without even realizing it)
The romantic = for leaving notes on the mirror or in coat pockets
A gentleman= for insisting on carrying every diaper bag and child when we’re out
A forgetful one= for always asking me where his GPS, car keys, Blackberry or anything else I hardly use is.
So well intentioned of a guy= for suggesting he get up with the kids in the middle of the night, quite enthusiastically. And attempting to do so makes him a
Brave guy= for truly trying to get the team back to sleep until he is
A humble man= for crawling back to bed and surrendering (in shock)
All in all, he is a truly great man, an honorable person to be with, a true example to me of so many virtues I fall short of. I can’t think of a better friend, companion or soul mate then he. On this his birthday, I thank his parents for raising such an incredible person and for sharing him with me. Hey Camera Guy, Happy Birthday! You’re another year older but you’ve got a new year ahead of you to grow holier, happier, and hopefully get more sleep!
*Of course, this post was submitted a week after his birthday. It wouldn’t be from me if it wasn’t late! Ha.*
