With just a handful of days left until we become husband and wife, I’ve found myself thinking about A a lot lately. Even more than I normally do! Sometimes it’s picturing him standing at the end of the aisle on our wedding day, sometimes it’s us 10 years down the road, sometimes it’s wishing he’d put his coffee mug in the dishwasher just.this.one.time.
But more often than not, it’s a little reminder of why I love him as much as I do. And now I’m going to share a few of those with you!
I love his sense of humor and ever-ready smile. I love that he can use that sense of humor to make me laugh even when I really don’t want to. I also love that he was willing to clean the turkey on Thanksgiving morning because ew.
I love that he pushes me to try new things and then does them with me. I love that he’s willing to talk me through essentially every mile of a half marathon just because I’ve always wanted to do one. I also love that he carried all of my crap (raincoat, gel snacks, water, etc) along the way.
I love that he supports my passions, even if it means giving up an entire weekend to help out at a work event. I also love just how much he loves the organization I work for.
I love that he indulges my whims without complaining. I want to make snow angels in 0 degree temperatures without any of the proper outerwear? He’s there on the ground beside me.
But I also love that he will say no to me, maybe not at that particular moment of course. But later on? Definitely glad. Because let’s be honest, yellow is not a good color for me.
I love that he’s handy and will enthusiastically help me with my endless DIY and home improvement projects. Plus I’m way too clumsy to use power tools and he’s saved me countless injuries.
I love that he’s kind of pretty much a total hunk. He’d totally blush and disagree if he read this, but it’s true!<
A is, without a doubt, my best friend in all ways. He has made my life fuller, happier and way more fun. I cannot wait to build our family with him and see all the ways our relationship grows and changes over the next 50 years!
