Happy birthday! I love you so very much. I think you have accomplished more in your 33 years than many people do in a lifetime. You are so kind and thoughtful. You always consider how your actions will impact others and you act accordingly. You always work to do the right thing and you do it with integrity.
You are freaky talented. Your art, in all of its incarnations, is so good and it comes so naturally to you. Take up printing? You can do it and be selling high quality linocuts in a few weeks time. WHAT?! Who does that? Oh yeah, you do that kind of thing all the time. Painting, drawing, photography, etc. AND you are a scary good musician. Seriously your ability to work a drum set is beyond words. Add to that the fact that you play guitar, bass, piano....whatever. Just another day for you.
Professionally you are brilliant and accomplished and motivated. Your work ethic is amazing. You take great effort to do your work to the best of your ability. We've been together long enough that I've seen you at work in your very first job up to this point and I will say that you bring that same level to everything you've ever done.
You are a great father too. You work to be as involved as a father can be. Our girls are crazy about you! You are firm, but fair. You are loving and affectionate. Our girls will always feel that their father was/is so loving, supportive, and engaged. I couldn't ask for more from you.
You are an amazing husband! Seriously. I couldn't have imagined a better partner if I had tried. You are endlessly supportive and so thoughtful. You are above all kind and loving. I can never express in words how thankful I am that I ran into you when I did so I could lock it in. You're a catch!
I love you and I hope you have an amazing birthday!
Letter from Cordelia

It 's your birthday today and happy birthday, birthday boy!
We love you so much.
