23 Reasons Why I Love You

Happy Anniversary to me! Okay, to us-- I guess if you want to get technical. But at this point Mark is just an extension of me right?

It's been two years. The kind of years that seem long because so much has happened, but have also seemed to FLY by. I wanted to come up with a clever post on why I love my husband and something about the two years we've been married, but for some reason, "2 reasons why I love my husband" just didn't seem very heartfelt. So instead I'll do 23 reasons I love my husband, in honor of the 23rd day of October we were wed.

Mark, (just some of) the reasons why I love you:

1. You kill spiders for me. These are in no particular order, but if they were, this still may on top.

2. You contributed to the creation of this little nugget. Who also happens to be celebrating his 2 year conception anniversary.

3. Your favorite meals are Henry's favorite meals, which makes my life easy. For example the other day for lunch I asked if you'd like a PB&J and Mac & Cheese (what I was making for Henry.) "Sure," you replied. Then you saw me pull the Mac & Cheese out of the fridge... "Leftover Mac & Cheese?! Even better!" was your response. And you were serious.

4. You're handsome. I can't wait to grow old with you.

5. You're ridiculously handy. Which is super convenient to have around.

6. Every morning, you never forgets to kiss me goodbye.

7. You go with me to Ikea, and are totally patient. Then you come home and put everything together for me.

8. You can make me laugh and smile, even when I'm not in the mood to.

9. You can make our son laugh.

10. You're a great Daddy. And you're way better at animal and vehicle noises than I am.

11. We love the same TV shows. Or at least you tolerate mine :)

12. I love our history together, South Padre, camping, Catalina and everything in between.

13. I love the story of the first time we said I love you.
The night of our first I love you. Camping at Brown County.
14. You can change your own oil.

15. I love how you always say "I love you," before you hang up the phone.

16. I love hearing you talk to Henry, King and Sparty.

17. I love how you proposed.

18. I love that you challenge me to be more adventurous and try new things like scuba diving.

19. You give the best hugs.

20. You are adorably nostalgic about so many things: food, movies, anything that reminds you of being little.

21. You get along with and love my family.

22. You love to fish. And I love that you'll be there to teach my children to fish.

23. I love how you love me.

Happy 2 years babe. Here's to many, many more.
