he's golden.

golden birthday:
a person's birthday when they turn the age of their date of birth.
today is lovebird's golden birthday.
{can i get a woot woot?}
we plan on spending the morning together doing something birthday-ish.
{given the fact we both work/dance from 12-10. lame, right?}
i'm thinking breakfast in bed or an early lunch date...?
one thing is for certain: no matter how late we get home,
we will have a feast of gelato, because that's lovebird's favorite. 

remember this birthday and then this one?
i can't believe he's 26 already.
or the fact that it's been over two years since i met lovebird.
it feels like yesterday when we: 
were giddy in love as we explored our city together.
{san francisco is where we fell madly in love}
 spent our evenings skyping due to our long distance relationship,
took turns hoping on a plane just about every weekend or so to visit each other. 
planned our wedding and indulged in a romantic honeymoon.
moved into our little home, jumped into new schools and jobs and made new friends.
which brings us to now...
lovebird is growing up. 
26 will be a good year- i can feel it in my blood.
big decisions are about to be made.
good thing they say golden birthdays bring a lucky year-
hopefully we'll have luck on our side as we plan our little future. 
26 sounds old, but oh-so young at the same time.
we have a lifetime of love to look forward to.
and that my friends, is what i look forward to most.
the fact that lovebird is mine and will be forever.
i'm excited to celebrate many more birthdays together.
all i know, is winnie the pooh said it best:
"if you live to be one hundred, i want to live to be a hundred minus one day so i never have to live without you."

to him:
happy golden birthday!
you are my everything:
my "shugg", my better half, my lover, 
my "shorter" half, my companion, my source of laughter, 
my inspiration, my partner in crime, my shoulder to cry on...
but most of all you are my best friend.
have the happiest of birthdays today. 
i love you.


  1. Happy Birthday to the Golden Boy too. =)

  2. Happy Birthday! I just wrote a birthday post for my own and my age is now 30!! Feels so strange leaving my twenties so consider 26 to be young :)

  7. thats so exciting! sadly my husbands golden birthday was when he was 3, so i didn't know him quite yet, probably because i was barely born. haha. anyways, good luck and have a fantastic day!
