I know the rule of social media is not to get soppy, but since rules are meant to be broken, I’m doing it.
Today is my husbands birthday and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have him in my life. It’s a crazy thing to think that he’s been in my life for 5 years (OK, this May will officially be 5 years, but what’s a few months between friends.) Sometimes I can’t believe it’s only been 5 years and at the same time these 5 years have blurred by in a blink. They have been the best 5 years of my life so far, without a question of a doubt.
Sox, I love who you are as a person. I love how kind and generous you are with your time for people (strangers included.) I love how fiercely loyal you are to your family, loved ones and friends.
I adore how your friends are your family. I love how children are drawn to you, “the baby whisperer” and how much you love your Godchildren, Yiorgo, Talia and Sloane.
I love that you love me unconditionally and you have an amazing way of calling me out on my stuff, especially when I’m having a silly insecure moment, or having a self deprecating moment. I don’t always love it, because who does? But, you have a way of doing it with such kindness and it just sets me right. I appreciate that you push me and challenge me and are one of my biggest cheerleaders. Thank you for believing in me, when I don’t always believe in myself and again, for setting me right.
We can annoy each other, we can get irritated but we are never hurtful or disrespectful to each other and I appreciate that. I also appreciate that we can talk about anything and everything.
I love that you are so humble and modest and how you get incredibly shy when people praise you.
I am so proud of how amazing you are at your job, a career that chose you. I don’t know many DJ’s who know how to genuinely read a crowd and play the music the crowd wants to hear, and not necessarily what you want to play. It’s a gift. There’s no ego with you, like there can be in the industry and I especially love that you bust the bad stereotypes of the typical DJ.
You made me so damn teary (damn hormones) when I asked you what you wanted for your birthday and you told me that the best gift was on the way and would be ready end of June. I love that we are about to become parents. Gosh, can you believe it? We prayed together and I’ll never forget how special that was and all our chats of our dreams and hopes for a baby and now Baby G is on the way. Thank you for not only not missing a scan, which I’m so grateful for, but actually wanting to be there with all your questions and concerns. Your tummy kisses and talking away in Greek to my bump is the highlight of my day. I tease you that it annoys me when you sing all the Manchester United songs, but I secretly (and now not so secretly) adore it.
I especially love who I am with you. This probably sounds funny, but I’m completely myself around you. I love how you make me feel and I love that I get to be me, with nothing held back. I get to be my goofy, nerdy, silly, girly, funny, serious, sad, mad and everything in between self with no judgement at all. You bring out the best in me. Thank you.
Sox, I always say you are my favorite person, and I truly mean it. I love you completely! Happy Birthday my love, you just keeping better and better (and hotter)… I’m so excited that I get to do life with you.
I was going through some photos and it was hard to choose, but these are some of my fave moments.
