Today is The Narrator’s 31st birthday. Eleven years ago, we said “I do” a few weeks before his 20th birthday. I adore this man with all my heart. We grew from childhood to adulthood together, and there’s no one else I’d rather be spending my life with and raising a family with. What’s rather interesting is that our pre-marriage counselor said she normally wouldn’t recommend two people who are so opposite to get married. She was curious to see how we’d turn out in a few years. I should write her a letter 🙂 It’s true, we’re as opposite as they come on many points, and I suppose that’s partly what drew us together, and it’s definitely what keeps life interesting!! So today, on his special day, I celebrate our differences. It’s that opposite-ness that strengthens us, stretches us, causes us to never stop dialoguing and sometimes is just plain entertaining!
His perfect vacation would be in the mountains. The last time I went to the mountains, I came home with pneumonia. Give me the beach, please!
He doesn’t like to be sandy. I love the sand between my toes.
His favorite color is black. Is that really a color or is it the absence of color? I prefer pink.
He is a mellow fellow. I’m wound as tight as a rubber band ball.
He has a killer tan. All year round. Even when we lived in Michigan. Without the help of tanning aids 😉 I’m fair skinned and burn at the sight of the sun. SPF 50 please!
I’m compelled to obey all the rules all the time. He’s a free jaywalking bird!
He is deeply artistic and creative. My stick people look bad.
He’s a dreamer, a big-picture thinker. I see the little details that have to happen along the way.
He has music playing in the background all the time. When I’m alone I prefer silence.
He knows all the words to every single song he’s ever heard even just once. I can’t remember the words to the songs we sing at church every week.
He sings along with the radio. I prefer to just listen, or hum.
I’m a worrier, he’s full of faith.
Happy, happy birthday, Narrator!!!!!
Happy Birthday, Narrator!
I can comment, I can finally leave a comment!!! (Don’t know why before, but… yeay!) I’m so excited, I’m giddy!
Happy Birthday Narrator! I’m so laughing at your opporsites! How fun and funny!
“My stick people look bad.” That’s funny!
But, lets see mister Nar sew a knock out Easter dress for Lil Miss Sunshine! Sometimes seeing all the detail steps and following all the rules makes beautiful things!

Yay, Amanda! You know I was never the artist. I couldn’t even stay in the lines on those cheerleading posters 🙂 This is true, the details and following the rules does make for precise sewing!
