Today is Mark's birthday. I talk a lot about the food Mark and I make (and eat), the places we go, and the things we do. But that probably doesn't give you a full picture of who this guy, the other half of The Daily Batch, is.
It is hard to capture him in words, but I will try:
He is purposeful, he is an adventurer, he believes in this Universe, and more importantly he believes in himself. He strives to challenge himself, and doesn't shy away from challenging other people. He is proud but doesn't take himself too seriously. He is in a constant state of forward motion and forward thinking, new learning, and understanding. He is loving, and kind. He is a traveler. He is 30,000 feet off the ground, and yet he is always grounded. He is compassionate and graceful. He has swagger, and electricity. He is a Cowboy. He is an Aquarius. He is the kind of person you'd choose to get stuck in an elevator, on top of a mountain, or in a foreign land with. He is my best friend.
Happy Birthday, Mark, I can't wait to see how great you make this year. I love you.
