I’ve been thinking about the words I’d say here for months. Here’s what I know: I’ve been blessed to have you for just a fraction of the last 30 years…but I feel like it’s been a lifetime. You are such a bright light. So kind, generous, understanding and gracious. Also very patient. These photos/homemade GIFs are a testament to that. You have taught me more in the last 5 years than I could have imagined. You have helped me grow immeasurably…and I can only hope I’ve done and continue to do the same for you. You own my heart, Eric. Completely. I’m crying typing this!! (Hopefully the sniffling doesn’t wake you up.) I hope every dream you’ve ever dreamt or will dream comes true. But either way, I’ll be by your side cheering you on. Happy 30th, my love! I’m so sooo proud of you! And you’re sooooo hot. I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living, my beb you'll be. To the next 30 and the next 30 and 30 more after that!
Congrats to Kacie on the new gig.
