Six Years and Six Reasons
Tomorrow (the 18th), Josh and I will celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. Sixth. I know in the grand scheme of things, six years isn’t all that long, but it feels like it (in a good way).
We’ve experienced a lot together, grown up together, and already act like an old married couple (we’ve been doing that for awhile). I love this guy, and since I haven’t blogged in awhile, I figured I’d provide six reasons why I love him (though there are many more) for the six years we’ve been together.
6. He cuts the plastic loops that hold six or eight packs together.
This may not seem like a huge thing to many, but it shows to me that he cares about the environment and the animals that can be impacted by getting caught in them. The fact that he’ll cut them to prevent something like that speaks to my heart and shows how considerate he is.
5. He takes care of our house (inside and out).
I warned him when we got together, I didn’t do yard work, and I reminded him when we bought a house. He likes the yard work, so I don’t feel guilty about that. 😉 Inside though, he’s constantly cleaning, vacuuming, doing laundry, or doing dishes. He does a lot around the house, and I probably take that for granted most days. I do appreciate the effort in all that he does. Our house doesn’t always look like a toddler lives in it due to this guy.
4. He tries to fix my problems…
…even if I’m just venting/complaining. He doesn’t like seeing me upset or in a negative mood, so he offers up options and solutions to try and get me past that hump in the road. While I don’t always appreciate it at the time (because I really just want to be angry and vent), I do appreciate that he cares enough to try to find a way to make me happier.
3. He’ll jump in puddles with B
Last week we had some rain and the way our driveway currently is, water will pool in a certain section, leaving a perfect puddle for jumping. B always seems excited that we’ll let him jump in it, but in all honesty, his reactions make it totally worth it. B decided he wanted his Daddy to jump with him, so he called him over, and they went at it. One of my favorite moments from 2015. They both got dirty, but they both had fun.
2. He works hard.
Josh busts his butt at work to provide for our family. His job seems to be non-stop, because social media never stops. He handles work things throughout the day, and most of the time takes time to humor me and my random IMs and link shares. 😉 Josh’s job has provided us some great stories, and I know he loves what he does. Seeing him work hard and enjoy what he’s doing makes me happy. I’m so proud of him, and love bragging on him any chance I get.
1. He loves me for me.
Even though I can be a giant pain in the butt sometimes, at the end of the day, I know he still loves me. He makes jokes to try and get my carefree side to come out when it needs to, though I don’t always let it. If I ask really nicely, he’ll rub my feet for me (he hates feet). If I’m stressed, he’ll rub the knot out of my shoulder. And if I want to eat somewhere he really doesn’t care to, he generally agrees to just to make me happy. When I’m mean, snarky, or just downright irritable, he still will give me a hug or kiss at the end of the day, and we move forward to make it better the next day. And I love that. And him.
I love you Josh, and I can’t wait to see how our life grows and changes together in the future.
Happy (day early) anniversary!
