Happy Birthday, To My Husband

Today was my hubby's 36th birthday! It is also the traditional feast of St. Gabriel, and the "nameday" of our precious little one that we lost this past November. I have an amazing story to share with you about that, but it will have to wait. Right now I want to share a few (36 to be exact) of the reasons I love my husband so much.

I love being married to a man who...
  1. ...loves God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength.
  2. ...is a practicing Catholic.
  3. ...is pro-life.
  4. ...is open to the gift of life.
  5. ...is such a great daddy.
  6. ...is a hard worker.
  7. ...does his very best to provide for us, so I can be a stay-at-home mom.
  8. ...insists allows me to home educate our children.
  9. ...has beautiful eyes! He has passed them on to our children. I can't leave home without hearing, "What beautiful eyes!" :)
  10. ...is not afraid to get his hands dirty.
  11. ...looks so cute in his fire gear. ;)
  12. ...is a "strong silent type." He's the perfect balance to me, as I'm usually the talker.
  13. ...puts up with my whining and complaining.
  14. ...lets me stick my ice cold feet on him to warm them up.
  15. ...is logical...although, sometimes this drives me crazy.
  16. ...loves me without makeup.
  17. ...I can count on.
  18. ...is not afraid to stand up for what is right.
  19. ...is ferociously protective of his family.
  20. ...always puts his family first.
  21. ...loves me unconditionally.
  22. ...gives the best back rubs.
  23. ...takes such good care of me when I am sick.
  24. ...buys me flowers.
  25. ...secretly took dance classes when we were engaged since he knew how much I loved to dance.
  26. ...is a good listener.
  27. ...cleans the bathrooms so I won't have to!
  28. ...is always willing to help me around the house.
  29. ...drinks Guinness, of course!
  30. ...does (most) of his laundry so I won't get Poison Oak.
  31. ...loves my cooking.
  32. ...can always help me correct my grammar and spelling! ;)
  33. ...makes me laugh.
  34. ...is my best friend
  35. ...I can't imagine my life without.
  36. ...chose me.
Happy Birthday, Hubby, I love you!
