One Year Older

Today is a very special day. Someone I love very much turns another year older today. Any guesses?

That's right -- my incredible, wonderful, supportive, amazing, super-handsome fiancé turns 24 today!

Happy birthday, Cadet Lovemuffin! 

But in all seriousness, he is my rock, and I am SO happy to have spent his 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and now 24th birthday with him! 

I didn't make something for Dan for once... it's surprising to even me! I actually bought him a gift. At a store. A real store. Isn't that crazy?! He's going to be shocked only because he has received nothing but homemade things for a long while. Oops. 

I will be meeting him for a marriage class at our church and then taking him out for a birthday dinner tonight... but we both have really big days ahead of us tomorrow, so that'll have to do! :)

Also, one of my students has a strange infatuation with Dan. She loves writing letters to him, and she gets SO excited when he writes back to her. I told her this morning that it was his birthday. She asked how old he would be, so I told her 24. At the end of the day, she brought me a giant card she had made for him. I blurred out her last name and some of the personal part! 

Earlier, I wrote this post before I met up with Dan... here's a picture of the birthday boy with his celebratory ice cream at Texas Roadhouse! 


  1. Happy birthday to Dan! It sounds like you two had a good time celebrating and your story about your student cracked me up!

    1. Thanks, Melanie! Haha, yes, this girl is crazy about writing to him. She has written him so many letters, haha.

  2. I hope he had a great birthday!!
    I love the card your student made for him. That's so cute. Some of my students during student teaching would draw pictures for my fiance. They thought it was so much fun especially when he would draw one for them.

    1. Haha! That's awesome! Yes, my students love it when Dan writes back. They are older, so they don't usually draw pictures, but I'm sure they would if I mentioned it!
