So here's to my hubby.
I love you because you work so hard to make sure we are completely taken care of--even if it means being gone for a solid month.
I love you because you are so patient with me and you put up with my
not-so occasional craziness.
I love you because you are so incredibly talented and you are always so modest and humble. It's super hot.
I love you because you never yell and you're always so sweet to me and to Gabriel.
I love you because you always let me warm up my cold feet between your legs at night (with only minimal complaints)
I love you because you're always willing to let me try your food at restaurants, and would always let me trade with you if I don't like what I got.
I love you because you eat everything I cook for you, even if it's a new recipe gone wrong that even I know is nasty.
I love you because you wake up with Gabriel every morning (if you're not already gone for work/school/what-have-you) and let me sleep in.
I love you because you always run over to feel Eva kick, even though you have felt it a hundred times.
I love you because you are such a nerd, which makes me feel like less of one.
I love you because you never get annoyed when I fall asleep in the car, no matter how long or short the drive is.
I love you because you make me and Gabriel your first priorities and always take care of yourself last--even when I protest.
I love you because you never steal your pillow back or reclaim the covers if/when I unknowingly take them in the middle of the night - even though I've repeatedly told you to do so. (I'm asleep, for heavens sake! And I only need enough blanket to keep me covered....which is why we have a big blanket...so we can BOTH use it, silly!)
I love you because you are absolutely hilarious and can always make me laugh.
I love you because you always drive. I hate driving.
I love you because you are, by every definition, a MAN. A good man.
I love you because you stepped up when you most certainly didn't have to and were in no position to make you feel obligated in any way. You are a saint.
I love you because you are respected by pretty much everyone around you - and that respect is EARNED.
I love you because you are MINE and I'm YOURS and, as far as you're concerned, I'm at the top of the totem pole. No one comes before me (even though there are those who think they do because of their role in your life) and you never let me forget that I am the absolute most important person in your life.
I love you because you remind me that you feel so lucky to be married to me. We are BOTH blessed to have EACH OTHER.
I love you because you make me feel beautiful even when I'm running around the house cleaning in a tank top and basketball shorts with no makeup and a messy ponytail.
You are everything to me. I am the luckiest girl in the world. I get to keep you for the rest of eternity.
I yuh yoo chu-ju!
