Birthday Boy

The love of my life turned 35 on Monday, so I thought it was fitting to share some fun childhood (and adulthood) photos to commemorate this milestone birthday. The 1980s-1990s photos are courtesy of his Aunt Linda.

It's hard to believe I've celebrated ten birthdays with this amazing man. Happy Birthday, Jonathan. I love you and this crazy life we've built together.
