12 Years!

Twelve years ago I asked the boy of my dreams to be my boyfriend. Yes, I asked him. I asked my puppy love to stop being my platonic love and be my first and only boyfriend. You see, when Art and I met we had just gone into jr. high. Although, I liked him like "wow," I was still at the age where I thought he had coodies :P As soon as I was out of jr. high it was like it was a brand new me. I made my move and he said yes :) We have been together ever since.

I can't help but fall in love again and again with my now husband. He completes me. He makes me strive to be the very best I can be...for him. He is the reason I breathe. He is the reason I pray. He is the reason I give thanks to my Lord every day.

If that is not cheesy enough for you, let me tell you the 12 reasons I love my hubby so much! 1 for each year :P Yes, I went there! I'm allowed to be a total cheese-ball today :)

To Art:

1. I love you because you know everything about me and you love everything you know.

2. I love you because you always need to talk to me whether it's something small or something major.

3. I love you because you always take care of me and protect me.

4. I love you because that smile of yours always makes me weak in the knees.

5. I love you because after so many years you still manage to give me butterflies in my tummy.

6. I love you because what other people might see as my flaws, you see as my qualities.

7. I love you because you love and care for my father and sister like you care for your own.

8. I love you because no matter what time of the day it is, you will hear me talk for hours...even if it's 3:00 a.m.

9. I love you because you think it's the funniest thing when I laugh at my own jokes while nobody else is laughing. :P

10. I love you because you are seriously my better half.

11. I love you because you believe in matter how crazy my dreams can get.

12. I love you because you have the most amazing heart, full of love.

I have so many more reasons why I love this man, but I will keep them to myself so I can let him know later on today.

I hope everyone has a great Friday the 13th!
