Happy Birthday Ian!


To some, he’s the guy that got killed off of Lost.  To many, he’s the irresistable Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries, but, while we all may look at him in different ways, Ian Somerhalder is one thing today… the birthday boy.  Yes, the CW star turns 34 today and, in my opinion, he’s done plenty with his life to be proud of in those short 34 years.  For one, he’s accomplished his dream of becoming a professional actor.  Not everyone gets to live their dream, which is definitely something to be proud of.  Plus, he’s helping a cause that he is truly passionate about, which is wildlife.  Through the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, Ian’s been able to help animals, preserve natural landscapes, and plan how to continue to protect nature.  I’ve actually had the pleasure of meeting Ian Somerhalder and hearing him speak live.  I must say that he is truly an inspirational person.  Apart from his philanthropy, Ian is simply a positive person, who is conscious of the importance of spirituality and emitting positive vibes into the world.  Yes, I loved Ian before I met him because of his charming smirk and stare as Damon Salvatore, but, after seeing who he is as a person and not a character, he gained my true respect, so, with all of that being said, I just want to wish Ian Somerhalder a very happy birthday!

Happy Birthday Ian!
