A (kind of) Love Letter

Who, me?

He turns the heater on before we wake up.
He brushes the kids' teeth, really well.
He cooks great salmon, great eggs, and makes a wicked salad.
He vacuums.
He does laundry (washes and dries/doesn't put away but...)
He makes coffee, or brings me coffee (almost) every morning.
He's financially responsible.
He's respectful to all people.
He's smart.
He's athletic.
He puts family first.
He gives the kids baths.
He's honest.
He puts up with my quirky stuff.
He loves our kids fiercely.
He fixes things.
He takes us on great trips.
He takes care of his mama.
He's responsible.
He's handsome.
He gets my oil changed, and tires ...um, rotated and whatever tires need.
He loves me.

I'm not such a romantic person... so, yeah, thanks hon, for being all of these things.  I forget to say it.  A lot.  So, thank YOU.  Really.

That's a sweet letter--you are a lucky woman! Not sure mine knows what a vacuum is or that we have a laundry room ;)

You gotta just love a guy who looks THAT good AND puts up with his wife's quirky ways (Really? You?)AND...oh hell...now I'm all jealous because he also vacuums.
You...are one lucky girl...and he a lucky guy 'cause look what all he's got!!

Well... Patrick is LUCKY to have you and SHOULD work hard to keep such a beautiful, wonderful spirit (you) and your awesome family happy.

Sorry, Patrick, what did you expect me to say? She IS my daughter. I think she deserves the best!

OK. I think you do a FANTASTIC JOB. Seriously!! And you are always WONDERFUL with your mother-in-law!

That's a perfect love letter. ;)

Krystyn said...

Awww....that's totally a love letter! What a lucky lady you are.

Jason, as himself said...

Um, YEAH, you ARE romantic. That was quite romantic. In a non mooshy sticky sweet way.

So my question is....he must have SOME kind of fault, right? He isn't absolutely perfect, is he? Or maybe he is.

I'm glad you're so happy.

He sounds very much like the man I married--and he's still wonderful 21 years later.

You can't put a pricetag on the things on that list--you're a very lucky gal. And he's a very lucky guy.

Oh, *swoon*.

I think sometimes we have to take a step back from it all and appreciate what we have in our lives, in the people we love.

Perfect.

That sounds like one good man. I think you should keep him...
He also is very kind to your friends and makes them sandwiches with pesto.
