Today is my wonderful husband’s birthday!! He is 32!! We will be celebrating this afternoon by watching the Arkansas vs. Florida football game (from the comfort of our home) with Jake’s friend, Nathan. I’m hoping the Hogs give Jake a nice birthday surprise and beat the Gators!! It’s not easy being a Razorback fan while living in Florida…we hear “Go Gators” ALL THE TIME, not to mention the Gators are a very good team!!! And the Hogs, well, we’ll just say they are in a rebuilding year. Here are some fun pictures of Jake over the years. (This first photo isn’t very clear, but I just love this picture. From left to right: Nathan, Matt, Jake and Nichole. Jake still stands with one hand on his hip exactly like you see in the picture!!)
Happy Birthday, Jake! Thank you for being my best friend and an amazing father to Ben! I love the way that you always stand up for what you believe in and always do the right thing even when it isn’t the most popular. You are my rock and the love of my life! I hope this day is truly happy!! I love you!
We also want to wish Jake’s cousin, Derek, a Happy Birthday! He and Jake are exactly 10 years apart to the day! Derek, we hope you have a wonderful birthday! We’re thinking of you and love you lots!
