Husband, Friend, Lover, Father-to-be

This is one of my favorite photos of my husband:

I fell in love with my husband quickly and even though we knew we wanted to eventually marry, we waited and prepared. Well he prepared… he wanted to give me what he thought I should have and felt that was important. See? A great man from the start. I never bugged him about marriage or rings or over the top proposals, because just being with him made me want to be a better person. I saw things differently and realized there was so much more about me than anyone ever tried to bring out. But he did, both the worst and best of me.

When I saw how magical telling our families was to him, I swear I felt my heart swell. I’ve always known that he would make a great father because in the almost 5 years we’ve been married he’s been a great husband, friend and lover. I mean seriously, someone that can see me at my worst and still want to be with me is a winner in my book. And he’s seen that and more and sticks by my side, and even though it is cliché to say, he completes me.

I see other father’s out and about with their children and get giddy knowing that seeing my husband with our first little one will be a thrill beyond compare. I experienced that thrill last month and if is possible to love my husband more, I do.
I’m sure some of you are reading this and thinking the hormones have gone to my head and maybe they have but I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying my husband and the thought of us being parents. Neither of us is perfect on our own, but together we are unstoppable. I probably never tell him enough, but I love him and appreciate how much he does to make me happy! So thank you babe, for all the times I don’t say it or show it.

I love you.
