So, yesterday I celebrated 14 years of marriage to my best friend.
It hasn't all been bliss.
We have had our share of bad times.
But, the good far outweigh the bad.
The way the "experts" talk, we never should have made it this far.
We did everything all out of whack.
First came pregnancy. Like within a month.
Next was moving in together
followed by baby being born.
We got married when she was almost a year old.
We didn't know each other as well as we probably should have, but we thought we knew enough.
And it has worked.
For the most part.
In honor of my wedding anniversary, this weeks Ten Things Tuesday is about why I love and appreciate my Honeyman.
Every Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, anniversary, and birthday I get flowers. Without fail.
2. Appreciation for what I do
He always thanks me for me cooking a good meal and taking care of the house. I know it is my job, being a homemaker and all. But appreciation is nice.
Hugs are my favorite thing in the world and he gives me plenty.
4. He doesn't care how much money I spend
I could break the bank and he wouldn't care as long as it made me happy. Not that I would. I kinda like having a roof over my head.
5. He works hard for us.
He stays in a very stressful job, working overnights to give us a good life. You can't find too many places with better health benefits.
He makes me laugh. We laugh a lot. I couldn't imagine going though life without a laugh at some point during every day.
When I feel bad or just depressed or maybe really stupid for something I did he is there and he makes me feel OK about everything just by caring.
We share a great love of music and have very similar musical tastes.Tom Petty is one of our favorites.
9. Movie Quotes
There are some movies that we know so much and we will throw out a quote just whenever the occasion seem to fit. It is just one of our little things. Maybe to some it is odd. But, it's fun.
10. Knowing what each other is thinking.
Something will come up in conversation with other people or just watching the news. We can look at each other and just know what's going on up there.
Does he drive me nuts? Yes, sometimes.
Do I drive him nuts? Without a doubt.
But, that's just part of marriage.
