Dear Daniel,

          Happy 29th Birthday! Are you really 29 already? I can't believe how fast the last year has gone by. I am so excited to celebrate this birthday with you as your wife.

          Last year, the first year I got to celebrate your birthday with you, I wrote you a letter about remembering all our firsts. And you know what? This year we've had so many more. From getting engaged in McCall, to you going away to Texas for 6-weeks for your Air Guard training, to getting married at our church with our entire church family there with us, to our first long road trip to Palm Desert, to all the new things we've learned about each other... I can't even believe how full this last year has been.

          You know, one of the things we always talk about is how we're always so busy. I love that about us. I love that we're always go-go-going and that we always have plans. And whether we're out around town, snuggling on the couch, feeding the frogs in the pond, or just stealing a moment together—as long as I'm with you—it's where I want to be. Each day, we are building so many memories. And every single memory I have—when it's with you—is a good one...one might say, "So good! So good!"

          Thank you for being that rock and positive influence in my life. Thank you for all that you're teaching me. Thank you for being a wonderful, amazing, brilliant husband. I appreciate you and the love you give me more and more each day. Happy Birthday, sweets. I love you.

                                                                                                                                          Love love love,
                                                                                                                                              Your Aunie

Aww! Happy birthday Daniel! 29 has been an amazing year for me so I hope Daniel has a great 29th year as well.

P.S. Have you noticed that in nearly all of these pictures you are on the right hand side and Daniel is on the left? Weird!
