Happy 30th Birthday, Ryan!

Tomorrow is Ryan’s 30th Birthday! We’ll be busy celebrating with family, so I wanted to share his annual Birthday letter today:

Dear Ryan,

Happy Birthday my sweet husband! Aren’t you lucky, a Saturday for your big 3 0!

This year I’ve watched you grow so much.

As you closed out your twenties, I witnessed you getting more patience and confidence and take the fast track to accomplishing your dream of graduating law school and working hard at your job. I never thought I’d be able to take on another person’s dreams and goals like I do with you. I’m honored to stand by your side and fight with you. And in return you stood by me through lots of tears this year as we worked together to become parents.

Your 30th year is going to be so eventful! Graduating law school! Quitting your job! Moving! Taking the bar exam! Starting a new job in a new state! And finally, becoming a father!

One of your most favorite things to say is, “I’m just taking it all in”. 

This year there is going to be so much to take in!

You’ll be saying goodbye to law student Ryan and hello to lawyer Ryan and daddy Ryan. I can’t wait to see you growing into those new roles. 

It’s funny how for years finishing school and parenthood seemed so far in our future but now that it’s upon us it simply feels like our life is overflowing. Like this is how it was always meant to be. We are surrounded by so much change, energy, and life. And I’m just going to sit here with you and take every last ounce of it in. 

This is going to be a year to remember and a great kick off to you joining my in the thirties club. Life is good and I hope to keep celebrating all the moments, big and small, with you. 

Happy Birthday, Ryan! Cheers to another year of you!

xoxo Katie
