I love this man that I get to call my best friend and my love. He is kind, giving, and loyal. He is quiet, but humorous. He'll work you under the table and then claim his successes were all luck and God's Grace.

He is a great Daddy, playing games, reading books, and coaching a mean t-ball game. He'll swim an afternoon away with the kids when I don't want to get in and get my hair wet...even when he'd rather be at his barn building something.
He's an avid woodworker, and quite good if I'm being honest. But he'd rather give his hard work away than ever charge someone for it.

He listens when I talk and makes mental notes about what to buy me for my next birthday or Christmas even when he doesn't care about or even know what I'm talking about. He's surprised me with a DSLR camera, my Silhouette and my sewing machine.
He is a great cook and spoils us rotten with pancakes, grilled nutella sandwiches, and the BEST caramel sauce, as well as his famous biscuits and gravy, jerk pork tenderloin or his barbecue. And don't let me forget to mention his clam chowder which people make requests for as soon as the thermometer goes below 75.

I am so lucky to have a partner in life that loves me and takes great care of me and our family. He works hard and encourages me to follow my dreams. He overlooks my messiness and forgetfulness (most of the time...). He is creative in his own way and although our creative mediums are different (wood or fabric), his vision inspires me to find my own.

Happy Birthday, Chris!! May the next 40 years be filled with even more happiness, love, and good times. I am so glad to share my life with you. I love you!
