Happy Birthday Captain!
Today is quite the day! Not only is it Chris’s birthday, but it’s the first birthday that we’ll be celebrating at “home” in Washington state in over 3 years! We’re going to commemorate the day by doing all the autumn things that he loves- picking out pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, drinking fall-flavored coffee, going on hayrides, and winding ourselves through corn mazes. I even slaved over homemade birthday carrot cake complete with fondant icing (that stuff is tricky).
You’re the ideal travel companion and my truest friend. Thank God this isn’t twitter because I wouldn’t even begin to describe how amazing you are in under 140 characters. You make life an exciting adventure and every day, whether home or abroad, is always a journey of exploration. I wish you the very best on your 26 birthday and I am so honored that we get to celebrate it together! Here’s to many, many more.
Love & exploration,
