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,
