I have known Paul since I was 10 and he was 12. We were quite literally "just kids." (If you are unfamiliar with our "story" you can read it and see some really bad photos here.)Over a decade later, in August 2007, I hopped a plane across the country to see if we could make "us" work. I have spent the past five and a half years sharing a life with my favorite person in the world. Paul - you are my favorite. You amaze me. You inspire me. You challenge me. You have become the most fantastic adult, husband and doctor. And you are going to be dad to our little ones! You always told me that you'd be ready for kids at 30. That, to you, 30 sounded like a good age to become a parent.
Well babe, we're right on schedule.
I love you. Happy birthday. Here's to the next 30 (and the 30 after that).
