happy birthday, geoff

Today my old man Geoff turns 30 years old. On our first date he put his napkin on his lap and I thought, yes, this is the well-mannered man for me (especially after confirmation from Susan Miller herself). A very happy birthday to the loveliest, kindest, most generous gent I have ever known. Geoff, who makes me more adventurous and who puts up with my crazy whims, who makes sure that I have eaten my breakfast and who gives me kitty reports throughout the day. Geoff, who wears very nice clothes, who never says a negative or mean thing about anyone or anything, who gives me art history lessons, who takes care of all the handy business around the house. He is tender and sweet. I love him to pieces, share a secret language with him, and can't stand to wake up without him.

Happy happy birthday. xoxo
