Spencer LOVES Me!

I am married to the best man in the world. I know there are some of you out there who may disagree, so I will compromise and say that I am married to the best man in the world FOR ME! Really, I am.

Remember those butterflies you felt when you were getting ready for that really special first date? I still get those!

But I'm not dumb enough to think that butterflies=love.

Here's how I know Spencer loves me:

1. He cooks. All the time. Really well.
2. He eats when I cook.
3. He listens to me ramble about every detail about my day. Every day. And I mean he really listens. Like he knows that Amy is just mediocre, that Dave eats ice cream when he's stressed, and that Karleen learned how to make bagels.
4. He brought me a pink pearl eraser and left it on my nightstand. That's for my Sudoku gaming habit.
5. He lets me do Sudoku in bed. Even if he's sleeping.
6. He made Bella leave our bedroom this morning so she would leave me alone and let me sleep in.
7. He took me out to see a chick flick today.
8. He took me out to see a chick flick today, even after running 18 miles this afternoon. In the rain.
9. He always tells me I am beautiful. Some people would be alarmed at the consistent lies, but I'm mostly just charmed.
10. He wears white shirts with the sleeves properly buttoned when we go to church, because he knows I like it best that way (I am SUCH a sucker for a man in a suit!).
11. He doesn't laugh at me when I've had drama that day. Until I'm ready to laugh, too.
12. He doesn't make me go to the auto parts store.
13. If we go to the auto parts store, he's OK with my standing in the corner and watching the TV till we can leave.
14. He doesn't roll his eyes when I start to cry. Maybe he does, but he waits till I'm in his arms and I can't see him rolling his eyes. Wait, no, that can't be right, because with as many times as the tears come for me, if he rolled his eyes, they'd stick that way. He just doesn't roll his eyes.
15. He folds the towels in thirds. Because that's the way I like it.

There are dozens more ways that I know that he loves me, but I can't stay up all night. He says he doesn't sleep well till I'm there with him. After 18 miles in the rain, that probably isn't the case tonight, but it's a lovely thought.

And in case you were wondering, I love him, too!

Isn't it GREAT to be in love?

My mom told me the other day that the eyes sticking from being rolled too much was just a lie that grown ups tell to make their kids be nice. I was mortified, all this years I've been avoiding the eye roll unnecessarily! Do you think Spence knows?

PS what chick flick did you see?
