Russell Todd Emrath was born this day in 1977. That makes him 30 today, and I've been rubbing it in since January first of this year! But as much fun as I've had at his expense, he is taking the new decade with grace and confidence. Russ is so much more man than I married seven years ago. He is an amazing father. He is my best friend. He is the person to whom I go to when I get showstopping, fabulous news, and the one who catches my tears when my day falls way below flat.
