And that means it's my favorite day ever. Because I like to imagine that the day he entered this world, the cosmos shifted, a ripple was sent through the time space continuum, and all the possible splintered outcomes realigned. Because the day he was put on this earth....was the day that meant my heart would never again be alone.
In every way, Justin was created to be my perfect counterpart. Not my exact mirror image mind you, or a mere replica of who I am. But so much more than that. Because he's the one who came along and somehow fills in all my gaps. And makes me a better person because of it. Like I always say, he's the calm, cool & collected to my "Eeeeeeeeeee!!!" The steady rock to my roll. The soft place to land to my high wire walker.
And so today, I celebrate.
Because today is the day that he came into this world. And my whole life was forever changed because of it.
Happy Birthday to the love of my life & the lettuce to my veggie wrap! I hope you're always the one holding me together.
**We take birthdays pretty seriously around this house, so we kicked off "birthday week" right with Justin's first present on Sunday: a Rollei medium format film camera. And yesterday I got to grab a few shots of him with it!
I would love for every one of y'all out there reading this to take a second to wish Justin a very happy birthday! It know it would mean the world to both of us!
