Today is Monday, which normally isn’t a very exciting thing but this particular Monday is exciting because… it’s Ted’s birthday! *cue confetti and party blower noises* Unfortunately, I work today, so we can’t do much celebrating. Luckily, we were able to celebrate this weekend with a low-key Sunday brunch (we took the pictures in this post outside of the restaurant), and of course presents.
I know today isn’t my birthday, but I just love birthdays in general. I love celebrating my friends and loved ones. I love watching them grow older, grow into themselves, and reflecting on how far they’ve come in the year that’s elapsed between birthdays. Ted made it pretty clear that he didn’t want to make his birthday a big deal, but I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to wish him a happy birthday on here! So, here it goes…
Happy birthday, Ted! I am so proud of all that you’ve accomplished in your 26th year, and I can’t wait to see what amazing things you do at 27. Your hard work and focus are just a few of the things I admire so much about you. You are fiercely loyal, and I love that I can talk to you about anything without fear of judgment or you know, embarrassment. Thank you for always supporting me and my passions, and for encouraging me when I’ve convinced myself I can’t do something. I love you more than words will ever be able to describe, and I’m so thankful to have you in my corner. I hope your birthday is as amazing as you, and that all your birthday wishes come true!
All of my love, for ever and always, Molly
