It is difficult to describe the first time you celebrate the day that the person you love dearly, entirely, without measure was born.

The words "happy birthday" become a bland string of letters that mean nothing even remotely close to the feelings you are struggling to convey.

There is a quote from the book EAT PRAY LOVE (Elizabeth Gilbert) that more closely recognizes the sureness I have for this man and the blessings we're receiving as we venture into this wilderness of life together; I offer it up here - on this day he was born - as a suggestion that there is always a greater plan... and that if you surrender to that greater plan, that higher thought, you will not be disappointed.

"God long ago drew a circle in the sand around the spot where you are standing right now. You were never not coming here. This was never not going to happen."

I am so proud to be standing with you in that circle.
