It is Brian's birthday today! A tax day baby. But Brian is the opposite of tax day. He's fun and adventurous and doesn't require a filing dead line. Lucky me!
He is spending today at work, and although we may see him for a bit tonight, we celebrated with him last night to be sure that we could really enjoy it. Brian had spent yesterday with Fletcher paddling down a river in a canoe: a fun exhausting day. We decided to keep it low-key since he and Fletcher were feeling a bit tired. Cake and presents!
Brian laughs and thinks a lot of things are funny. He reminds me not to take life too seriously, and his most oft used quote is "Fuck them if they can't take a joke." (Sorry for the f-bomb, but I don't want to misquote!) He makes our home a joyful place for us all, and keeps us all on our toes for sudden spur of the moment adventures.
I love you, Brian! Thank you for the happy life you've helped us build. Happy Birthday, love.
