I was a single mom for eight years. Spending most of my twenties dreaming of the perfect husband, my mind created this magical guy who would swoop in and complete my days.
I knew exactly what I wanted…
someone who loves me to pieces and holds me together when those pieces fall
someone who is ready for the challenge of step-parenting and can ride the waves as they come
someone who makes his daughter’s eyes sparkle and mirrors that shine in his own
someone who plays cars and trains and swords with his son but is his real life super hero
someone who cradles his baby as gently as the first time he was placed in his arms,
and someone who holds our family together with love and band-aids, hugs when we’re hurting and when we are not,
fitting perfectly in that dreamy space I imagined so many years ago.
Happy Birthday to my amazing husband, you are more than I could have ever hoped for.

Your hubby looks like an awesome dad and husband. And he’s hawt. So, there’s that. 🙂
I may or may not tell him you said that ;).
Happy birthday! I’m still laughing over the pirate photo. He’s so into it, and Parker is looking at him like he needs to dial it down a few notches 🙂

Awe happy birthday to your wonderful guy! Such a sweet post and lovely family.
So sweet! There is nothing that melts my heart more than seeing my husband as a father to our kids. <3
Couldn’t agree more, seeing them as such great Daddies is amazing.
Happy birthday. I love how you’ve described him, Jessica, and that he is all that you want and need and more. (Also, Libras should rule the world! (I’m a little biased; my birthday was Wednesday)).
Oh Happy belated Birthday to you!
You are truly blessed with a very wonderful man.
Such a sweet post! So glad you found the man of your dreams 🙂
What a sweet post to your husband! I hope he has a great birthday!
