twenty-four

Today is my birthday.  


24 years old
{this, obviously, is not me, I just liked the image from flickr}

And it's been a great birthday, I love my family so much.  They are my everything. 

I asked Joel for two things this year, a poem... and a song :)
I wanted an original poem written by him, and any song he thought I'd like.

He wrote me this today... 

"Oh! Olivia I love you so"

Olivia you are the best
You have a really nice chest

Oh! Olivia I love you so
But I really do hate your toe
(I had a mole removed from my toe and the healing process has been quite gross, lol)

I can't believe you're twenty-four
Hopefully I'll see a hundred more

Thank you for my baby Jack
I would never take anything back

I really do dislike your cat
I want to hit her with a bat

So happy birthday to my wife
I hope you like this and we do not fight

Oh! Olivia I love you so
But I really do hate your toe

And he sang me the song, "If I were a carpenter" 
by Johnny Cash & June Carter

I especially loved the parts he sang by June... 
he always makes me laugh :)

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?

If a tinker were my trade
would you still find me,
Carrying the pots I made,
Following behind me.

Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I'm given you my onliness,
Come give your tomorrow.

If I worked my hands in wood,
Would you still love me?
Answer me babe, "Yes I would,
I'll put you above me."

If I were a miller
at a mill wheel grinding,
would you miss your color box,
and your soft shoe shining?

If I were a carpenter
and you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?
Would you marry anyway?
Would you have my baby?

Joel did not disappoint, I love him so much.
