Ten on Tuesday (Times 10)


It only seems appropriate that since today is my 4 year wedding anniversary, that I relate my 10 on Tuesday to that. So here it goes, 100 reasons why I love my husband and what I love about him!! I definitely cheated on this one and started WAY early.

1. He is my bestfriend

2. He is the one I dreamed of every night of my life and the one I think about each day.

3. Every time he looks at me my heart skips a beat.

4. He's got my back. Always. This is hugely important to me. I know that Josh is 100% behind me, always. He is always there for me, and always takes my side. My true partner, in every sense of the word.

5. I never have to ask him "do you love me" he makes me know it everyday

6. He can ALWAYS make me laugh

7. He has the ability to overcome adversity and rise above it

#36, not only is he not afraid, but he FREAKING ENJOYS it, vaccuuming lines into your carpet, still makes me laugh! We saw a house the other day, and the grass had the just mowed lines, and it made me think of him!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to a fabulous couple!
