Dear Christian (My Mr. Nielson),
Darling, today is your birthday. You are 38 years old. Can you believe it?
I was thinking about your 22 birthday in 2000, remember that one?
We were engaged and I gave you Jimmy the puppy for your birthday.
Remember that? Remember I handed him to you with a big red bow around his neck and
you were so excited!! I'll never forget your face.
We took him for a walk right away and then decided to name him "Jimmy"
after your favorite band Jimmy Eat World.
But enough about Jimmy, lets talk about you.
You are the love of my life. You are everything to me.
When I think of my happiest memories you're right there, when I think about the
hardest times in my life, you're there picking me up and encouraging me on.
When I think of the most joyful times in my life, you're there celebrating with me-
in fact it's probably because of you.
Honey, I love you so much.
Can't wait to enjoy many many more birthdays with you.
(I guess maybe I should be writing this letter to your mom because she is the reason you are here...and maybe I should write to your dad too), anyway I can't wait to celebrate with you all day (and night wink, wink).
-Love your girl Stephanie
