My dearest Chloé,
It's that time of the year again! You're now 22, welcome to the club. Every year, with every birthday that passes by, it makes me thankful for your birth. A day where we celebrate you coming into this world, is also a day of reflection for me. We've been a gay/straight/what even are we couple for almost 9 years now. Over those 9 years I have had the privilege to watch you grow as a person, to watch you accomplish so many things, with some you thought would never happen, only in dreams.
Yet you went out there and did it. Your confidence has grown, you've began your exploration of the world, and I don't see you stopping. I am in awe of you. So on your 22nd birthday, as I write reflecting on you as a person, I couldn't be more proud of what you've become in the near decade I've known you. My life is so much better with you in it. You make me a better person and I'm so grateful to have you in my life my darling. Thank you for being born and being who you are. You're fierce and fabulous and you don't need to explain yourself to anyone. I am so excited to see how you take on the next chapter of your life and to see what you make of it. You are destined for great things, I know it and I can feel it and I'll be here every step of the way. Forever and always. You're my person, so happy birthday my love. I hope you have a good day and that you too can reflect on what an amazing journey you've been on and can be proud on how far you've come.
I love you so very much, and I always will, you're my ride or die.
Love you, forever and always,
