“You are my every dream brought to life. With our hands pressed together I know that we will always find our way home. You are a gift to this world, a teacher of light and a student of love,” the Twilight alum captioned the photo of an illustration of the words “I Love You” with two birds smooching. “You radiate warmth in vibrant reds and deep orange hues. I often wonder what it would be like to see autumn arrive through your eyes. Here is to the next 65 years together, holding hands, strolling through the woods, still learning, still listening. Happy happy birthday…I love you.”

The lovebirds, who married in April this year, are known for their love of nature and animals. The former Lost star even launched the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which aims to educate people on protecting animals and the environment, on his 32nd birthday in 2010.

“My goal and Nikki’s goal in life is literally — my goal in particular — is to build four profit entities that will literally feed our necessary non-prof initiatives till the end of time,” the actor told Us Weekly in July. “We definitely share that passion together in a very huge way.”
