How Do I Love Thee?

In light of our six-year wedding anniversary, which will be June 19th, I thought I would share some of the things that I love about my sweet Ryan.

1.  I love that you love God.
2.  I love that you love me, no matter what.
3.  I love that you love our babies, no matter what.
4.  I love that you think I'm the prettiest girl in the world, even when I have on no make-up and I haven't slept a wink the night before.
5.  I love that you put gas in my car.
6.  I love that you understand how important my Sunday afternoon naps are :)
7.  I love that you let me use up all the DVR space on my shows.
8.  I love that you separate your clothes in the correct laundry bags.
9.  I love how you can organize drawers and cabinets.
10. I love that you laugh at me/with me, whatever.  I love to hear you laugh and know that I can make you laugh.
11. I love that you wanted a big family (I think we got one faster than we thought!)
12. I love that you have the best of both your mom and dad.
13. I love that you respect your parents.
14. I love that you are willing to cook supper nearly every night.

18. I love that you help me with housework.
19. I love to hear you sing/rap.
20. I love that you have nice feet :)
21. I love that you know the words to every Little Mermaid/Beauty and the Beast song and you sing along with the girls.
22. I love that you don't say anything when I run up a tab at the coffee shop.
23. I love that you smell like Old Spice :)
24. I love your hands.  They make me feel safe...mainly because you can throw a mean punch.

27. I love that Mary Carolyne loves you so much, she even wants a beard like yours :)

29. I love that whenever you order a salad at a restaurant, you say, "And I'm gonna want a bunch of crackers."
30. I love that you are to the penny on our checkbook.
31. I love that you brought me and my mom flowers when we went on our second date.
32. I love that reading makes you sweat :)  It's cool, reading is not for everyone.
33. I love that the first time you told me you loved me was on the beach.
34. I love that you drove over an hour to my house when we were dating, just to bring me a pumpkin for Halloween.
35. I love that you bought me a Christmas Tree to put in my apartment when we were dating.
36. I love that you told me you check the messages at work, just to hear my voice on the outgoing message.
37. I love that you said, "Do you mind if I live vicariously through your shoes?"  So funny :)
38. I love your "fake laugh".
39. I love that you like to have people over to our home.
40. I love that we played poker at your 10th birthday party.
41. I love that you taught me to swim when we were nine and you didn't make fun of me for being nine and not knowing how to swim yet ;)
42. I love that you are sweet to children.
43. I love that you agree with me that we have no business having a dog right now!

I almost just had a heart attack because I read this, loved it, thought "I need to comment on this", clicked "comment", saw "Stacy", and instantly felt the need for a Gingko Baloba pill because I didn't remember ever reading this, let alone commenting on it! Then I realized that it wasn't me, and I felt much better!

I loved this post! You are such a good blogger! Some of your reasons were so sweet I almost cried, but then I read the funny ones and cracked up! I love the Krystal one, and I love how you knew each other when you were younger and that just makes now even more special for you!

Congrats on 6 years, and if the baby you get pregnant with next year could actually be triplets you could tie up the kids/years race! :) j/k
