A special day for my love.

Today is my husband's birthday! He's a quarter of a century! Haha I like to bug him, since he's a whole year older than me. In honour of this wonderful man, I've decided to write a list of things I love about him.

Our first couple picture!
He is sweet and thoughtful. When we first started dating he would buy me little presents to cheer me up when I was overwhelmed with homework. We often go to bookstores and libraries for dates, even though my interest in them is much greater than his. The other day he did every item on the "honey-do" list, even though I told him he didn't have to!

He is creative and artistic. He is studying to be a graphic designer, and he's doing very well in school! He has so many ideas in his mind that he doesn't even know where to start sometimes. He didn't just leave house decorating up to me; he played an active role in choosing furniture and paint colors because he cares about that stuff too. He has dreams of opening a design studio/art gallery in our town city because that's just what he's passionate about.

He is ridiculous, silly, and funny. He makes me laugh more than anyone else, and can cheer me up when I'm feeling down just by being himself. Yes, Chris is responsible and mature, but he's also really immature and that's awesome.

His smile makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, especially when it's that secret smile that lovers have :D

He loves me so much. He prays for me every day, and I know that it helps make my day better. He tells me every day that I'm beautiful, and he makes me feel really good about myself with his encouragement. He's also a great kisser ;)

He's becoming a great spiritual leader in our marriage, and he loves Jesus so much. His relationship with the Lord is really important to him. He loves worshipping in church, and he wants to become more involved in the body. We both feel like we were meant to live in a bigger city for the arts and culture, but we stay here for our families and our church.

He matches me so well. He's patient where I'm not. He's more analytical of things where I'm spontaneous. He's quiet and reserved in social settings, and I'm more of a social butterfly. He balances me in a perfect way. At the same time we're so alike. He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.

Christopher, I love you more and more every day, and I'm more than blessed to have a husband like you. I can't wait to spend the next 25 years of your life with you, watching you grow and become more of the man you were made to be.
