Ahhhh... June 18th. Our
six seven year anniversary. (kidding dear--I remembered!)
Today is a tribute to my wonderful, loving husband because he deserves it. Really.. he totally deserves this.
The other night we went on a romantic date. To where else? Menards. On the way he asked me if I had any ideas for a Father's Day or Anniversary blog. I said "No. Why? What would you write about?"
Without hesitating he said, "I would call it the Seven Year Itch... except with a "B"
Without further ado...
Reasons why I love my husband
He's a GREAT dad..
He always knows the best way to comfort our children
and they really love playing with him.
He helps out around the house
And he has the best ears
EVER for our kids to play with.
He's a hopeless romantic
He supports all my crazy ideas.
He's a hard worker,
but knows when he needs to take time
He's good at sports
and a great fisherman...
But the biggest thing I love about my husband is the serious heart-to-heart talks we have...
and the fact that he's not easily embarrassed!! :)
Ahhhh... I feel so much better now.
Justice has been served. :)
Really and truly though.. I hate to get too sappy, but he honestly is all those things and more.
He was the first person to buy me a paint set and canvases when I confided to him that I'd always wanted to try painting, but had never been able to take an art class in high school.
He dug up a little tree in the dark of night from my Grandma & Grandpa's farm place before it was sold, so we could have a little of their memory growing at our home.
He gives me a hard time about all my "junk" I collect, but he has shown up more than once with a truck bed full of pallets, windows, or old boards for me.. just because he knew I would want it.
He agreed to move back to his hometown (something we read later in my old journal he said he never wanted to do... oops!) and remodel an old farm house.. just because I wanted to.
Just the other day he stopped suddenly in the middle of the road to jump out and pick me a wildflower. :)
AND... he spent his Father's Day setting up our pool.
For the... kids? I think...
If you're curious why this blog is titled "Like a thief in the night" it's because apparently after my very first post when I talked about what I would blog about, he was quite offended that I didn't mention him. So I promised that someday I would devote a blog entirely to him, and it would come like a thief in the night...
Today I am making good on that promise...
I love you honey!!
