Today is Omar’s birthday. I remember your birthday last year…we just had our first date and you insisted I come to your birthday party – the big three-oh – and I was forced to decline due to previous obligations for work. Although we barely knew each other at the time – looking back now, we would have said we’d known each other for years – it still breaks my heart to think I wasn’t there. The same goes for this year…who ever said long distance was hard wasn’t joking.
Now that we have known each other for more than a year, I can officially say that you’re the most thoughtful, kind, amazing person I know. I love how you make me laugh, how you research restaurants before we go to make sure they have a decent vegetarian selection, how you calm me down when I’m angry/upset/stressed. I love that you dream bigger for me when I don’t have the strength to do it myself, that you adopted Chachi as one of your own (even though you are allergic to cats), and that you love me almost as much as I love you -love you more ;).
Even though I’m missing out on your birthday yet again, I am through the moon excited to be there for your birthday celebrations next week! I’ll make up for being gone, I promise! Happy birthday my love.
