17 years ago today…

…I married this guy.


And since I’m fortunate enough to have a public spot to speak from, I’m interrupting our regularly-scheduled programming for a a random little (non-exhaustive) list of ways that he rocks.

(I know that in writing this list, I risk making our marriage appear to be free of difficulties.   However, I’m just gonna trust that you know no marriage is smooth going 100% of the time. Because no marriage is made up of two perfect people.)

-He writes me email notes every single day when he first arrives at work.

-He makes a point of spending time with our kids.

-He’s responsible and dependable.

-He doesn’t like clutter.   😉

-He appreciates my cooking.

-He thinks I’m funny.

-He lets me know that I’m his favorite person.

-He’s always up for spending time with me.

-He understands that sometimes, I need time by myself to recharge.

-He is not a workaholic.

-He’s always willing to run errands for me.   Which is great, because I hate running errands.

-He thinks I’m beautiful.

-He keeps me from being too focused on productivity…so I stop and do fun things more often because of him.

-He talks to me.

-He encourages me.

-He shares my faith.

-He writes really great notes to me in cards on special occasions.

-He never, ever forgets special days, like my birthday.

-He loves me and likes me even though he probably knows my flaws better than anyone else in the world.   😉

Congratulations! I think that it's important to share the good things - I appreciate that you don't gloss over the bad stuff that happens in life, but focusing on the sweet things is important, too. Happy Anniversary to you both!
