MY beautiful bride

I get the awesome opportunity to capture one of the biggest days in my clients lives; their wedding day. Capturing weddings are one of my favorite things because I get a weekly reminder of the commitment I’ve given to MY beautiful bride!AllegraToday is her birthday and since I don’t get too many opportunities to show her off, I thought this was the perfect time.
A little over 5 years ago I fell in love with this amazing girl 🙂AllegraOne of the first things I noticed about her was her fun-loving spirit. She loves making people laugh…..and it’s pretty funny the things she does to make our son laugh!
Allegra, I want to say happy birthday and THANK YOU for all that you are! Here are some things I love about you:

  1. How you inspire me.
  2. The way you challenge me.
  3. How you encourage me in everything I do.
  4. The way you teach me that I can be wrong sometimes…..although not too often 🙂
  5. How you can make me laugh.
  6. That you laugh at 30% of my jokes.
  7. The way you give more than you take.
  8. That you love more than you expect in return.
  9. Letting me sleep in on Saturday mornings.
  10. How you always leave the last bite for me (you don’t admit it, but I know that’s why you leave 1 bite of every meal).
  11. How you let me win at Words with Friends.
  12. Your soft kiss in the morning when you leave for work.
  13. The way you love Ashton.
  14. Your simplicity.
  15. Your depth.
  16. Your consistency
  17. How creative you are in everything that you do….writing, painting, photography….
  18. How you could eat breakfast for any and every meal of the day
  19. That because of you I have a coffee addiction.
  20. That because of you I know what sushi is.
  21. How you dream with me.
  22. How you listen to my detailed explanations when all you want is the big picture.
  23. That you are trustworthy.
  24. That you have integrity.
  25. That we can talk about anything or nothing and that conversation still doesn’t get boring.
  26. How you pretend that I am funny.
  27. How you finish my sentences before I begin.
  28. You love me for me.

I love you sweetie!  Happy Birthday! I pray we have many years of laughter together!Allegra
