You, my love, have got such a personality!!
I joke that someday you will have a very social job like cruise director! Certainly, the life of the party, which you already are. You have absolutely got joie de vivre, your smile can light up any room and you have a knack for drawing people in.

I can't imagine my life without you! I can't wait to see what next year brings. I love you!
