on a thank-you note...

these are our giddy faces.

thank you...

...for calling me on my first day of class just to see how it went.

...for letting me take the garage when you know I'll be home late.

...for usually being the one to drive even when we take my car somewhere, because you know how much of a crazy/paranoid/anxious driver I am much of the time.

...for cleaning up the kitchen as much as you can, even after I nag about it.

...for not calling me a nag, even when I actually am, very much, that exact thing entirely too often.

...for somehow managing to manage my baby fever (for the time being, anyway).

...for loving those absolutely ridiculous reality shows that we both can't help but watch somewhat obsessively. (I still can't believe they voted Mr. Boston off this soon! What the heck! Lame!)

...for all those random jokes you are always coming up with; the ones that I will laugh about for a full fifteen minutes, then continue to have sporadic laughing fits for the next several days. Seriously.

...for making dinner without my even having to ask.

...for picking the bacon bits out of my alfredo sauce that one time.

...for always working so hard without any complaint, no matter what it is you're doing.

...for staying awake as long as you can hold out, when I need to talk at night.

...for not murdering me in your sleep, because, really, you never know when you're going to take the whole sleep-talking thing to the next level and I'm just glad it hasn't happened yet.

...for tickling me when I need a good tickling.

...for giving me cute nicknames like "Lovely", "Loufenn" and "Lover Bee" (although, I'm not exactly sure where that last one came from, nor why it always makes me melt when you say it).

...for being the one to take my hand, put your arm around me, or give me a kiss without me being the one to initiate.

...for your patience.

...for trying your hardest to understand me, despite my being, well, a typical female.

...for having such a good attitude when I go on my cleaning rampages.

...for having a good attitude when I insist on being an obsessive photog and you're the only person around for me to take photos of. And for usually giving me a decent smile in photos of us together, although I'm not sure if the above photo is evidence of this - even though it makes me totally happy.

...for coming up with the greatest adventures for us to enjoy together.

...for truly being my perfect fit despite all the ups and downs, which I am reminded of more and more each day.

  18. aw, this is so, so sweet. I totally wanted to write something akin to this for my husband on his birthday, but well, that just didn't happen. I loved reading about yours though! He sounds just PERFECT for you... isn't it amazing how God knows exactly what kind of man we crazy women need? :) You two are a beautiful couple.
