Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

It's Day 14 of the challenge! And I've decided to mix today's prompt up a bit. So, instead of "ten things that make me happy," I'm only going to talk about two.

1) Birthdays. Birthdays make me happy. Like really, really happy. And I believe they should be celebrated for anyone and everyone no matter how old you are or what species! (Obviously, Huck gets birthday parties. That's a no brainer.) And gosh darnit, if you don't like your birthday celebrated too BAD! I'm going to celebrate it anyway. And Lord forbid, you forget my birthday...because I'm one of those obnoxious people who will hold a grudge towards you until you repent of your sin or make it up to me 364 days later. Just saying...

2) Steven. Steven also makes me happy. So happy in fact that I decided to bind myself to him in holy, happy matrimony before God.

But there is one little problem between those two things that make me oh so happy! Steven doesn't like to celebrate his birthday. *Gasp* I KNOW! Total bummer.

But I choose to ignore that little fact, because I think he is worth celebrating. I think he deserves having that day where people buy him gifts, and make him cakes, and pick up his tab. I want to celebrate the fact that he's in my life and has drastically changed it since I met him. I want to celebrate how much he means to me and how much I love him. 

Birthdays are worth celebrating. So if I love you, whether you like it or not, we are celebrating your birthday! 

Also, I make dope cakes.
The point is: Birthdays + Steven = Happiness! 

Happy Birthday, Steven! And thank you for letting me fuss over you today. You deserve it more than you know. I love you.

This is such a sweet post, Danielle. One of my best friends is crazy about birthdays for many of the same reasons you are - he thinks of it as a time to celebrate that person. I think that's just such a sweet sentiment and I love your outlook on wanting to appreciate all of the people in your life. :)

Showed my wife this post, she gets excited for birthdays especially hers (at least when it comes to what I will be planning for her). I could care less about mine. Don't hate it but I just don't care much about the day unless I am getting a rate insurance drop or something. Shelby makes it a point each year to throw something for me and though i wouldn't mind either way, her love and excitement is what always gets me. She makes those days wonderful, darn birthday loving women.

Birthdays are SO important! More important than holidays, I think. Because you're literally giving a person a special day, celebrating the fact that they exist on the earth. I try to always make a big deal about people's birthdays. :-)

Love that cake! Bomb dot com work, girl :) birthdays are one of my most fave things; especially when it's my other half's! I go all out for him and it gives me some sense of satisfaction... Even if it does probably end up being WAY too much ;)
