The blogger, 43, shared a carousel of photos on Wednesday, showing the Full House alum enjoying his favorite pastimes including smoking cigars, relaxing at the beach and indulging in a seafood tower.
"Happy birthday 🎂 This truly never gets less weird or surreal," she captioned the Instagram post. "But the gratitude grows every single day. I'll never stop feeling like the luckiest person on Earth to have had the privilege of spending 6 years with this amazing man."
She reminded her followers that "life is short and we never know how long we are going to be here."

"I still take comfort in the fact that Bob used every minute on this planet to enjoy life to the fullest and make the world a better place," she shared. "To celebrate Bob on his birthday, do as he would do…tell all the people you love that you love them, preferably in a very long & verbose voice text dictated by Siri."
Rizzo concluded her post by revealing how she planned to commemorate Saget on his birthday: "I'll celebrate him today by having a very-cold, extra dry dirty martini with blue-cheese olives (IYKYK)."
"And I hope he's celebrating up there with a massive cigar (his favorite thing), a martini, and a few dozen oysters while sitting on a beach. He would love that," she wrote, before ending the post with a special message for Saget's loved ones. "Thank you all for still loving Bob so much. 🎂🎂🎂🎂❤️❤️❤️❤️"
