Happy Birthday, Roger!

Today was Roger's 26th birthday, and as you can see from the picture above, we had a whale of a celebration! I hope he enjoyed the weekend, with its long, sunny walks around New Haven and Queens, as much as I did.

This is the tenth birthday we've celebrated together. When he turned 16 and I had a massive crush on him, I bought him Candyland, since he'd told me once he had always wanted it as a child but never actually played it. I'm pretty sure it sealed the deal for our relationship, since he was so pleased when he opened it and we starting dating a few months later. Since then, he's mentioned about a million times how much he wanted a Fudgy the Whale Cake, so a decade on, I finally made that happen. I think he was pretty happy with it.

I can't imagine having a better partner in life than this guy. He's brilliant, incredibly hardworking, and hilarious. There isn't a day that goes by that isn't better because he's in it.

To my favorite art historian, dining companion, and cat-parent, happy birthday! I can't wait to spend another 365 happy days with you.
