Tell It To Me Tuesday – 10 Reasons I Love…

10 Reasons I Love My Husband
Mein Mann

  1. He makes me laugh, even when I’m busy trying to get a serious mope on.
  2. He is generous with people he loves and with those in need.
  3. He is both adventurous and cautious. He loves a thrill, but he calculates his risks before taking them.
  4. He loves food and he gets bonus points for thinking my panang curry is better than my mom’s.
  5. He’s really good at indulging my whims – which is good, because I have many.
  6. He makes resolving problems remarkably easy because he listens and he’s open, and pretty dang smart too.
  7. I love the way he carries himself: it’s kind of a masculine, unselfconscious grace that almost reminds me of a lion. I think it’s sexy.
  8. He’s bringing back old school manliness – a trait sadly undervalued and underrepresented these days. (If you’re not sure what I mean by this, check out these sites: The Art of Manliness and Rules For My Unborn Son)
  9. He thinks learning is cool. He gets curious about things and then goes off to learn about it in depth, files it away into memory, then moves on to the next topic.
  10. I thought of many recent moments that made me feel all warm and squishy inside, but none are safe for public consumption. When I mentioned this to him, he choked on his coffee and then looked both proud and flattered.

So, my love, this is for you: “ih”.

What are your 10 reasons to love who you love?

  1. This is such a lovely post. The first one is so important I think, I love to be able to laugh together. One of the most important things for me is the way Andrew and I balance each other out, I'm a bit more wild and outgoing and he's more thoughtful and patient.

    I will join in again in a couple of weeks- you're topics are so challenging and require more time and thought than I can manage at the moment but I've not given up. A week on Friday we get our keys!!

    I did kind of write about the reasons I love the person I love the most in the snippets writing challenge recently…

    Have a lovely day,
