Reasons Why I Love My Husband

Monday marked one oh-so-happy month of wedded bliss!

Down South women seem to think that having a man in your life fixes your problems, but I can tell you with one modest month of experience that this is a lie.

As kind, sweet, and loving as he is, he has not magically transformed into Prince Charming relieving me from any and all worldly suffering or annoyances. But, hey, I haven't transformed into a perfect person either. I'm still grumpy in the mornings and I have no greater desire relinquish control of the remote than I did before we said "I do." 
However, as realistic as I like to be about our relationship, I will say that it really has been absolutely a true blessing being married. I love finally living with my best friend and we're just as in love as we've always been despite having to schedule our showers.

SO, I thought I'd celebrate the wonderful man I married and share just a FEW of the reasons why I love my husband:
  • He prays for us before we fall asleep every night
  • He kisses me to wake me up every morning
  • He doesn't over-complicate things
  • He tells me everything and I can tell him everything
  •  He has been faithfully using the cash-only system I put in place
  • He willingly goes shopping with me
  • He's passionate about politics too
  • He forgives me for *not* sharing the Cheez-its
  • He always puts the cap on my toothbrush even though I forget
  • He hangs out with my dad, talks to my mom on the phone, and calls my sister his sister
  • He does the dishes
  • He sings to me while I make dinner
  • He's still my best friend

The list could go on, but I'll stop here.

Here's to imperfect perfection and enjoying love!

I think it's so great to focus on the little things. Yeah, you love him because he's funny, but appreciating Cheez-it behaviors is pretty fantastic.

you two are adorable!

and thank you so much for the sweet comment :)
