It is September 7th, which means it is my yearly tradition of announcing on the blog that the most beautiful and wonderful woman in the entire world has another year of grace and wisdom to add to her life. I couldn't imagine where I'd be and what my life would be like without Emily as my wife, because she has been my inspiration, encouragement and butt-kicker. I need all those things, and I can never thank or love her enough. So, Emily I've already said and written a few things privately to you today, but in the public forum, I want to declare once again that you are my muse and that I am forever jubilant I get to call you my wife.
Happy Birthday, Beautiful.
