I can't believe that you're real sometimes. I know it's a joke when people say they pinch themselves, but I do sometimes. Or I close my eyes for a long time and then open them to make sure you're still there. You always are, and I thank God for that. There was a point where I didn't think I would actually get married, or at the very least, I wouldn't be happy. But then I met you. It wasn't a straight line, but we got here.

But now you're my wife, my everything, and I couldn't be happier. I know it was a rough, weird year and if I had it my way we'd be spending your birthday in Italy eating lasagna, but a cabin is good, too. So happy birthday, babu. I hope that all your wishes come true this year! I love you deeply.
