Dear Tom,

I met Devin five years ago on Beale Street during the Southern Heritage weekend classic. I was just there for the music, the food, the fun – I just wanted to be in the crowd. That’s where he saw me and i saw him.

We met and hit it off.  In getting to know him, I found out that he is a Tennessee state fan…a tiger!  I wasn’t rooting for anyone but I also discovered that we were both single parents.  When we introduced our little girls into our relationship – I fell in love with him even more…that we made a daughter of our own.

Devin works the 3rd shift in order to provide for his kids. We see each other every morning before I go to work. He goes to sleep once I leave to take the girls to school and to daycare.  He picks them up, helps them with their homework and makes them dinner.

He likes doing things around the house like mowing the lawn, raking leaves, servicing my car, changing light bulbs and eating strawberry cake. Words cannot express how much I appreciate him.

His 31st birthday is this Saturday and since he really loves working on cars, I would love for him to have a nice set of tools – you know how important it is to have the right tool for the job!
