Happy Birthday Edward!

Today is Edward's birthday. He is 108 years old, but of course, eternally 17.
Edward Anthony Masen was born to Edward and Elizabeth Masen on June 20, 1901 in Chicago, Illinois.
He was changed into a vampire by Dr. Carlisle Cullen in September of 1918.
He appeared to the lovely Stephenie Meyer in a dream just two weeks before his birthday in 2003. She decided to write his story and the rest, as they say, is history.

So Happy Birthday to the most important fictional man in my life...Edward.

Check out the Happy Birthday tribute over at Cullen Boys Anonymous. Here is one of the wonderful videos they posted which contains some of my favorite pictures of Edward.

And just as they did for Rob's birthday, Twitarded has brought us the deets on Edward's birthday from The Secret Language of Birthdays. (mature language warning, but it's Twitarded, so you know that by now, right?)

Also, I think we owe a shout out to Rob today as well. Not only did he bring the character of Edward to life, but he saved us all from having our visions of Edward ruined by the "long, timeless hair" that Catherine had imagined for him. Thank you Rob, for sitting through 8 hours of hair extensions and making them pull them all out the next day. Believe me, Edward and all of those who love him are eternally grateful.

Check out the Edward discussion over at The Danger Magnet. It is SO worth the read!
