happy birthday danny!

Yesterday my favorite fella turned 24!  Which, as he pointed out before he left for work yesterday, means that he’s now two years older than me.  Not quite technically true, but it’s his birthday, so if he wants to say that, I’m all for it.

If you know Danny, you know he’s good-looking, funny, and into talking.  Among other things.

As his wife, however, I know a few more things than just those basics.  As I’ve been drafting this post (in my head and on paper) for the past couple days, I often think of him in relation to us (i.e. he eats the food I make that isn’t all that good, he makes the bed in the morning), but in the end, I’ve decided that this should be a celebration of him, not a listing of the things he does to make me happy.  I can talk about all that other stuff in a post about good things he does.  But this will be about who he is as a person.

Danny is Jesus-loving, people-loving, sports-loving, superhero loving, and fun-loving.
