Happy (Belated) Birthday Darling

Happy (belated) Birthday Boo!

If I am being honest, I had full intentions of writing this WELL before your birthday and to have it published on the day, but as you are fully aware my days aren’t quite my own, so I apologize for my slack.

A couple weeks back I was driving around with Adelaide with my music on shuffle and this Katy Perry song came on, Double Rainbow. I had listened to this song multiple times before this, but I hadn’t ever really listened to it before. For your reference here are the lyrics:

You’re a one of a one
A one of a kind
That you only find once in a lifetime
Made to fit like a fingerprint
A code that clicks open a gold mine They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
When I found you, it was all pitter-patterSecretly, I hit the lottery
‘Cause you’re brighter than all of the Northern Lights
You speak to me, even in my dreams
Wouldn’t let you go for even the highest priceThey say one man’s trash is another girl’s treasure
So if it’s up to me, I’m gonna keep you forever’Cause I understand you, we see eye to eye
Like a double rainbow in the sky
And wherever you go, so will I
‘Cause a double rainbow is hard to find

Was a phenomenon when you came along
Yeah, our chemistry was more than science
It was deafening, loud like lightning, it was striking
You couldn’t deny it

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
The two of us together, make everything glitter

‘Cause I understand you, we see eye to eye
Like a double rainbow in the sky
And wherever you go, so will I
‘Cause a double rainbow is hard to find

To the bottom of the sea, I’d go to find you
Climb the highest peak to be right beside you
Every step I take, I’m keeping you in mind

‘Cause I understand you, we see eye to eye
Like a double rainbow in the sky
And wherever you go, so will I
‘Cause a double rainbow is hard to find

Now not every piece of this works for our story, but about 99% of it is exactly how I feel and think of you. This has truly been a trying year for both of us on so many levels. Through it all you have been the most amazing best friend and a partner I could truly rely on, even in the darkest fog. Now not saying that the fog has entirely lifted, but the sun is definitely shining and with that comes our own variation of a double rainbow.

I am so thankful you were born. Words are never going to be enough to describe the joy and delight I have for this day. My life is richer, more meaningful, and SO MUCH MORE fun with you in it!
I love you Graeme David and I can’t wait to celebrate so many more birthdays with you!
