Love is…

I know I’m a day behind on Valentine’s Day, but since it didn’t fall on a Monday, I couldn’t publish this yesterday. πŸ˜‰

About two months after we started dating!

Yesterday was the anniversary of when we started dating, so we’ve officially been together for five years. Wow! As time has passed, I’ve discovered some of the ways that he shows his love for me. Here are just a few…

πŸ’œ Getting up early with the dog on the weekends so you can sleep in.

πŸ’œ Encouraging your not-so-secret dream of becoming a writer.

πŸ’œ Comforting you when you find the doctor’s note for work from when you had a miscarriage.

πŸ’œ Hauling a bookshelf and approximately 7,000 books upstairs by yourself since your 7 months pregnant wife can’t lift anything too heavy and gets winded just from putting on her shoes.

πŸ’œ Actually, hauling anything up or down stairs. We need a pulley system…

πŸ’œ Driving your wife to work and picking her up when she’s nervous about driving on ice.

πŸ’œΒ Making the best chocolate milk on the planet. Seriously. The. Best.

πŸ’œ Being responsible for cleaning the bathroom 90% of the time. Cleaning the bathroom is the devil’s chore.

πŸ’œ Offering you money from his fun money envelope.

πŸ’œ Telling you how beautiful you look when you’re convinced that you’re the size of a small country and you still have two more months of growing to do.

And these are just the tip of the iceberg!Β Happy (belated) Val-i-versary to my husband! If you’re curious about how we met, check out my post on Nashville Mom’s Blog!
