he's adored...

you
have given me more laugh lines than I ever thought possible
you
understand my thoughts even when they don't make any sense to me
you
warm my feet when they're cold
you
bring me saltines and sprite after a night of being sick
you
reassure me with your eyes when I'm facing something tough
you
balance me when the world is trying to push me sideways
you
have answers when I question myself
you
tell me I'm amazing and that I can do whatever it is I'm thinking about
you
always tell me my butt looks good in my jeans
you
never complain when I take too long to get ready
you
always surprise me at christmas with the perfect gifts
you
go anywhere with me when I ask
you
take deep breaths for me when my chest feels like it's being crushed
you
laugh at me all the time
you
buy the groceries when I just can't face the idea of food shopping
you
run out late at night if I need anything
you
don't complain when I read in bed and the light's shining in your eyes
you
are my knight in shining armor
{or in this case a felted animal hat}
and
you light up my life more than you'll ever know

  2. My hubby and I were childhood sweethearts, have been married for 20 years and have 2 beautiful children - I can relate.

  3. Expressing this is truly a gift to both of you ... love appreciated makes it all the sweeter ... and then a gift you share with us so we can see and feel how special it is when it is "real". It can warm your heart for a lifetime ... of that I am certain.

  16. When I first began blogging, I sat down and wrote 50 reasons why I love my husband. Or, rather, what I love about him. I love this idea. It shows the delicate part of your marriage as well as the strength. He reads like a keeper, Beth. :)

  17. Not only a wonderful poem, and so very perfect with every area considered, but the photo is so darned charming, I think everyone can see why you're still smitten after many years! Smiles!
