Happy Birthday Ryan!

Today is my sweet husband's 26th birthday!  Wahoo!!  Today is a low key day but one full of special treats and celebration!  Ryan LOVES french toast so I'll make him a healthy version for breakfast and he has a goodie bag to open full of fun things. Both our parents are swinging by today to love on him and his best friend Matt is bringing him a chick flick and lactose free ice cream later (secret: Ryan loves chick flicks more than me...shhh!).  Not a bad day for having surgery just 24 hours ago :)

Ryan John Decker I am SO glad you were born this day 26 years ago--you are my favorite person, the most legit man I've ver known, and a blessing to everyone you know!
