Happiest of Birthdays to Hunter Miles Moore!

Ready for the mushy gushy, lovey dovey stuff?
Good, cause on this day I am feeling especially grateful for my sweet Hunter's life.

Hunter is SO incredibly easy to fall in love with.
I mean, based on his outward appearance anybody with eyes would fall into a love spell.
However, its whats on the inside that truly makes him special.
That's where I got trapped. 
That's where I realized I had found the most amazing man ever.
Getting to know Hunter was so enticing, it was so fun, and new.
Every day there was something to learn about him, a new puzzle piece to put together.
Every little thing about him just attracted me to him Moore.
Right off the bat, Hunter was incredibly nice to me.
It was in his nature, he was nice to everybody else as well.
I'm almost positive you could ask anyone we went to high school with if he EVER intentionally said something rude to them, made them mad, or made fun of them their answer would be no.
He just didn't have it in him.
He really understood the importance of being everybody's friend. 
Even the superintendent had a crush on him... but that's a whole other story...
Hunter is one of the most respectful men out there. (just so you know its reallllyy weird for me to use the word "man" when talking about him. I don't know when we grew up)
Really though, he is beyond respectful to everyone.
He was so respectful to his coaches  and teachers that they respected him right back.
He has always been respectful towards women and always encouraged me to respect myself.
He is hilarious. In such an odd way... but nonetheless hilarious.
He wants the best for others, always.
He is forgiving and understanding, this one I know first hand.
He is determined and such a hard worker. School is not his favorite, but he always knew it was important and therefore did his best.
He is such a loving person. I find some of his old notes funny because he has a hard time putting his emotions into words (most of the time) but he definitely gets the point across and really knew how to make me, and others feel loved. 
He has such a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and lets anybody who will listen know this.
He has a light about him that shines so bright and others are drawn to it. For this reason alone, I know he is one of the best missionaries out there.
He is serving the Lord wholeheartedly and finds so much joy in finding those that will listen to the message he has to teach.
He loves his family unconditionally and understands the importance of being in a family.
He treats his mother with so much kindness, it puts me in awe. He loves her dearly and it makes me tear up just thinking of how grateful I am that they have that special relationship.
I could go on and on about him clearly, but that's what his birthday card is for.
So I'll leave you with one last thing. 
Hunter loves me with a love I have never felt and that means more to me than I will ever be able to put into words.
He may have been my first love, but he has me positive he will also be my last. 
Here's to Hunter Miles Moore being another year older!
Here's to his life. 
I have been so blessed to have been a part of it.

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
