Happy Birthday William

My favorite person turns thirty today. To celebrate, we’re going to Seattle next week with his parents to see The Who in concert, explore Seattle and whale watching. It’ll be a wonderful trip!

I love that at this time last year, I was visiting Pocatello for the first time, and now I love here and we’re engaged to be married in just a few short weeks. Oh, how a year has changed things!

I cannot wait to see what this new year and new decade of his life holds. I’m excited that I get to be there side by side with him.
