Happy birthday my prince charming (not) :)

I remember him telling me (after an episode of me whining and being stubborn) "I can't be your prince charming. I am just Reiner" -- Thats when i knew that I wanted (needed) to marry him. My Reiner for you - Real. No pretensions. Truthful to himself. He does not believe in courtship. Only friendship and endless conversations of 'whys' and 'hows'. He taught me how to commute, love classical music, make the perfect sandwich, and appreciate the simple things in life. Thats a snippet of how i fell in love with him and thats one of the reasons why i still have a crush on him after 4 years of being his girlfriend and almost 3 years of being married to him.
