Today is my chap's 22nd birthday!
And while it is certainly a chance to celebrate the many wonderful things that have happened in his life (and the many more to come), for me, it's a chance to celebrate having him in my life.
We've been dating for quite a few year (as the shocking photo below will demonstrate) and I can honestly say that I love him unequivocally.
Together we've had some wonderful times, but I think it's the day-to-day occurrences that make me adore him so. He is one of the kindest people I know, he is ever so sweet and he knows how to laugh.
And in an utterly selfish way, one of the things I love most about him is that he makes me who I want to be. He makes me happy.
I love you mr, Happy Birthday!
And now onto some flash photography...
I provide this purely to you as a form of entertainment to offset the mush above.
But, oh no.
Here we are in early '07, a few months after we'd started dating.
For the record, it was a James Bond themed sweet-sixteen, hence the garter, the gun and the exorbitant amount of leg! (I was trying to seduce 007 with my leg, okay?? A perfectly reasonable explanation...)
And here we are a few weeks ago, I think we've matured quite nicely! Like a fine wine... or strawberry lime cider...
What did you think of me back in the day?
