Happy Birthday to my Southern Beau!

{my beau as a baby}
Today is a special day...the birthday of my southern beau. I've been sitting here for several minutes trying to figure out what to say about him, but it's hard to put into words just what he means to me.

I feel really blessed to have him in my life and in my corner. He is the smartest person I know, the truest, the most loyal. He cannot tell a lie to save his life and is even worse at keeping secrets. 

He has the biggest heart, especially when it comes to our spoiled rotten dogs. He makes me laugh like crazy. He gets me. 

Nobody is perfect, but he is perfect for me.

I am ever so thankful he was born on this day and eventually wound up in Knoxville...grateful to my friend Ellen for recommending I take a creative writing class my final semester of college...happy that my beau worked up the nerve to ask out the giggly girl in the pink raincoat and glad I said yes all those years ago.
