hubby, will you be my valentine?


Dear Husband,

Today is our first Valentine's together. I know it's 'just another day' but it's kind of like the one day set aside to make me remember just how much I love you. And also an excuse to put hearts all over the place and talk extra lovey dovey. But seriously, I do love you a whole lot. Everyday (or most everyday, haha) I feel like I love you more than the day before and that my heart just keeps growing because of you. You are so much nicer to me than I sometimes deserve and I don't give you enough credit for all the things you do for me.

You are
my best friend
my burglar-in-the-kitchen-checker when I hear werid noises
the best chili cook in the world (I'll only eat yours!)
bedtime warmth for my freezing toes
my jacket giver when I don't wear forget mine
my hero
the best shoulder to cry on
and also to smudge make up on when the tears come
the laughter in my life
and the song in my heart

I love that you
always ask if I unplugged my straightener because you know I'll worry later
make skinny cut homemade french fries for me and call them 'babycake fries'
act like I'm the greatest back scratcher ever
get out of bed to make sure the door is locked just because I asked you if it was
never let me get away with Pinteresting when I need to do homework
tell me not to look and you talk really loud when scary movie trailers come on TV
always want me to pick what's for dinner
love to tell me you love me (I never get tired of hearing that)

I'm so glad that God has placed you in my life, and me in yours. I can't wait for all the things we have coming in our life and marriage together, but I also love these moments here and now.

I love you always & forever.
Happy (first) Valentine's Day
