Why I Love My Husband

1 - Because of the way his eyes crinkle when he smiles.

2 - Because of our "pillow talk" conversations.  We laugh, bicker, discuss serious things - all while my head is resting on his shoulder and he's holding me tight.

3 - Because he's kind.  And funny.  And smart.  And generous.  And he loves God.  And he's an excellent father.

4 - Because he can run wiring, plumbing, and duct work.  He can install a toilet, a sink, a dishwasher, a gas stove, a water heater, and a light fixture.  He can roof a house, remodel a house, landscape around a house, and put new siding on a house.  He can fix a car, a lawnmower, or a toy train.  He can cook, clean, and folds laundry.  He can hang drywall, hang trim, hang a new door, and hang windows.  And on top of it all he teaches chemistry and physics to high schoolers.

5 - Because he comes home and plays with the kids every single day.

6 - Because he thinks I'm pretty and funny and a good wife.  He appreciates me.

7 - Because he's a total geek about superhero movies.

8 - Because he remembers when Downton Abbey is on when I forget.

9 - Because he loves his family - his parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins, us.

10 - Because he is a nice guy, a good man.  In my opinion, he is the best of men.

    1. Well, we'd be okay if he reigned that one in a little bit. ;)

  3. Nick and I were just talking about Travis. I was of course saying how he is such a funny guy. And I remember you telling me that when you were pregnant with Lydia and you had morning sickness, he made a comment like "well at least it only happens in the morning." LOL Nick and I always remember that comment and always refer to Travis while we laugh and smile. I was complaining the other day about not feeling well and Nick's all "well at least its over by noon." And we laughed and laughed and thought of Travis. And Nick always says "Man, I love that guy." In conclusion: We love Travis too. :)

  4. You are a lucky gal for #4!!! (And all the rest, too, of course!) Enjoy your day!!

  5. A lovely list, every wife should have a list like this!
