1/21/15 – Day 360: You Are Beautiful

I might have touched on this one before.

But today, I’d like to discuss a bit in detail some of the obvious and subtle ways that your beauty shines through.  We’re going to stick to the physical today. It’s part of the 10 Days of Tina for your 40th birthday.

Your freckles.

Your smile

Your laugh – it makes you light up.

Those legs.

Your style.

There are other things, but some of these things are best left between you and me. I gave you a card. You can read about ’em there.

I love you. You’re beautiful. You’re cute. You’re sexy. You’re incredible.

There’s nothing more to say about this than simply posting the picture:

12/30/14 – Day 338: My Favorite Christmas Present

I’m back in the office after being home for Christmas break for a few days.

And I busted out my favorite Christmas present:

Normally you give me pics of the kids (which I like), but this was unexpected. I’m not sure I love me in that hat (cute maybe, goofy, most definitely), but I love us with our big old smiles enjoying the sun (on the left) and the snow (on the right).

I love it. A couple fun selfies of us – a cute, early forties couple (ha – you’re not quite there yet).

I love you!

12/4/14: Day 312 – The Elf Loves some Jazz Piano – and Candy Canes

(Author’s Note: I’m behind. I admit it. But I don’t want to publish Christmas posts in March, so I’m going to catch up by writing current posts while I fill in the gaps of old – I’ve taken notes and pictures and have some drafts, but I’ve not posted all things because, well, life.)

So we adopted an elf this year, and as you know, the elf (lovingly named Jingles by our daughter who, in your words ’embodies the spirit and wonder of Christmas’) kind of freaks me out on a number of levels.

Jingles seems to be very kind and sweet and undestructive. Let’s hope he stays that way!

11/20/14 – Day 298: Pilgrims!

Today, we got to see the cuteness that is represented by our sweet pilgrim boys.

You made cute, good kids. They have their moments (since they are kids), but they are awesome.

Given that we’re in the season of thanks, I’m thankful for you and for them and that you’ve made my life sweet.

11/14/14 – Day 292: Because You Let Me Comfort You

We all have times when we feel overwhelmed but can’t explain exactly why.

Various stressors converge all at once. Our mind wanders into catastrophe-mode where it should or not. We end up wanting to just cry.

Sometimes I feel that way. Sometimes you feel that way.

Last night, you felt that way. But you let me hold you and just be there with you. I don’t mean to make your stress moment about me, but it meant a lot to be able to just lie there with you and be your husband.

I hate it when you feel sad or stressed or overwhelmed, but that’s what I’m there for and I pray you always let me be the person you need me to be in those moments.
