giving thanks | day four

because I'm feeling mushy, today... I'm thankful for my husband, Sean. he is the most amazing man I've ever met and I honestly couldn't imagine my life without him. in fact, it's hard to look back and remember what my life was like before him, even though it wasn't that long ago.

Sean is my best friend, my wannabe handy man, my soul mate, my hard to reach pimple popper, my lover, my foot rubber, and my partner in crime. I don't like to say that I believe in fate, but I honestly think that Sean and I were destined to be together. his love and respect and kindness make my soul so happy, and I am so incredibly grateful to have him.

some days, I wonder how he puts up with me... with my complaints of every day life, to my obsession with cats and shoes, to my graphic descriptions of my uterus pains, all the way down to the way I walk around our house in my not-so-sexy underwear. I know that I annoy him to no end sometimes, and yet, he's still there every morning when I wake up. and not only is he there, but he's there with a smile on his face, ready to kiss me in all my morning breath glory. confession: my morning breath is the WORST.

also, he is really handsome.

he really is my better half - he knows me better than I know myself, and he's quick to call me on my bullshit when I'm in the wrong. I love that he doesn't just agree with me to keep me quiet and happy. we'll debate for hours on something that doesn't even matter, just to prove to one another that the other is wrong. unfortunately, Sean is super duper smart (win!), and knows a lot of weird ass facts, so if he brings something up and I tell him he's wrong, I get a long list of reasons why he's right, and they're all FACTUAL reasons (fail). seriously though, he is really intelligent, and I've learned so much (even if it is useless trivia) from him.

oh, AND... he's cute as a button.

Sean has got to be the funniest and silliest person I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. tickle fights, dead baby jokes, and songs about our cats are regular performances here in our house. he talks to the kitties like they're actual people, just like I do. it's the most adorable thing ever. he is the worst liar, and when he's trying to tell a fib, he gets this half smirk on his face, and it's hilarious. don't worry, he never tries to lie about anything serious... more like, "hey did you forget to flush to toilet?" type thing that he tries to deny. and yes, he often forgets to flush the toilet when he's half asleep in the morning.

on a more serious note, Sean truly is my soul mate. he is the peas to my carrots, and I couldn't have designed a better husband for myself. he's hard working, caring, and SO thoughtful. sometimes he picks little things up for me just because he knows it'll make me smile, like pistachios or Skinny Cow ice cream bars. he lets me pick the movie sometimes, and he doesn't mind that I don't come to bed right away because he knows I'm an insomniac. in fact, he's been pushing me to make a doctor's appointment with a sleep specialist. I should probably get on that.

did I mention that he is also really, really, ridiculously attractive?

he is extremely supportive of me, and does a good job at pushing me passed my own personal limits. when our training sessions ran out at the gym, he told me to keep going, because he knew I wouldn't start going to gym on my own without a trainer. when I quit smoking, he made a special trip to the grocery store to get me nicotine patches. he believes in me and he respects me like no other, and he really knows how to make me feel good about myself. 

he is the absolute love of my life, and he makes me feel like the luckiest woman in the world. for that, I'm thankful. 


oh, and just because I'm looking through old pictures of us and getting all reminiscent up in this bitch...  here you go. just so you know, these are all from the first year that we were together. I know this because they're in a folder called "S&M - first year." I can also tell it's our first year because of how skinny we both were. oh, 2007.

you're welcome.
