Happy Birthday, Beth!
Today is the birthday of the hottest, smartest, most caring and fantastic wife and mother who has ever walked the planet. It's Beth's birthday!*
I was talking to someone the other day who asked how long Beth and I have been together. It was mind-boggling. In a very good way. We've been married for 12 years and together for over 18. We're rapidly approaching the point at which we've been together longer than we've been apart. And I can't wait. While I don't believe another person can ever define someone, I do believe that Beth has made me who I am today. She's a fantastic wife. She helped me bring two incredible kids into the world. And at the end of the day she's a hard-ass who doesn't take any of my shit. I need that.
Beth, I love you immensely. You are amazing and I'm grateful every day that 25** years ago you were brought into this world. I love you. Happy birthday.

* for those of you who thought I was talking about Florence Henderson - you know who you are - ew.
** Okay, she was totally not 12 when we hooked up because, again, ew, but a guy doesn't spill his wife's age. And she totally looks 25.
