There is a birthday boy in the house :)

Today Arty turns 30.  I can't believe we met when he was 21 and I was 18.  When I type that, it looks so much longer than it feels.  Time has really flown by.  We have had so many amazing adventures already and I know there is so much more to come for us.  He still makes my heart flutter.  Each year he gets more attractive to me and I remind him of that often.  So to celebrate 30 I wanted to do a list (I love lists) of 30 reasons why I love him.  WARNING this list may be mushy and overly gushy.

Newport Beach, California 2010
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico 2009
