5 Reasons for 5 Years

261This past Friday, William and I celebrated our 5th anniversary.  I told him it feels like it was yesterday, but also feels like he’s always been in my life.  So in honor of our 5 years, I thought I’d share 5 reasons why I love him.  (Of course, there’s lots more than five such as he loves God, duh!)146#1 – He just “is that into me.”  (Have you read that book or seen the movie?)  Well, I’m lucky because I found a man who just IS that into me!  I am so blessed to have a man that is madly in love with me and all my craziness.  He gets me.  He encourages my dreams and passions.  When asked once if he wanted to be a pastor/speaker, he said “nope, I’m just going to go set up Emily’s chairs.”  It has steadied me much to be married to him.150#2 – He is a true gentleman.  They sure know how to raise ‘em in Texas.  Now I know that women don't NEED to have their door opened for them, or their chair pulled out, but it sure makes me feel special when they are done.   He goes the extra mile to treat me like a lady.  And he’s got his ways with the older ladies too. :)  It’s nice to know that chivalry is not dead.167#3 - He is a great father.  It's not rare to find him on the floor wrestling with Owen or playing cars and trains.  He handles his share of dirty diapers and getting splashed at bath time.  He's quick to say "I love you", give them kisses, and has amazing patience with them.  I’m lucky to be on this parenting journey with him!
212#4 - He helps around the house. Not only does he do the outside work, but he is great about helping inside too.  Dishes, floors, laundry, cleaning up my piles... He does it all willingly.  He is the handy man extraordinaire and can fix most anything.  He has no idea how safe this makes me feel.  It also makes me feel safe that he checks all the doors multiple times before going to bed. :)231#5 - He takes AMAZING care of our family.  There have been multiple times in the past when he hated loathed his job.  But I am so thankful to have a husband who is willing to do whatever he has to do to take care of us, and works hard so that I can stay at home with our kids.  I don’t tell him this enough.252#6 – He has really good taste. (ok, I know this is one more than five).  But I love this about him.  I mean, he married me right?  Just kidding.  I know this seems shallow, but I love that he has really high end, good taste.  When we go shopping, we always agree on things.  He doesn’t mind making our spaces as nice looking as we can on a budget.  He appreciates when I find cute clothes for the kids.  He always looks nice! :)255Ok, I’ll stop.  But really, being married to this man is pretty awesome.  I love him more everyday.  I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us next.  Thank you William for pursing me.  It didn’t take long for me to realize how great of a catch you were.  Happy 5 years!!828
