I heart Kevin

I met my husband on the first day of school my freshman year at Friends. It was in the B wing of the Fine Arts building, right in front of my (now) studio. We didn't start dating until the next summer. We had a rocky first year, all my fault. For some reason I wanted to date 2 guys at the same time. Kevin told me he wasn't going to share, so I chose him. Best choice I ever made.
  • Even before we started dating, when we were just friends, he brought me a cappucino from QT before Theory class. I knew he was the one back then.
  • He is a natural leader. He loves to learn. I love to listen to his thoughts and opinions about issues. I'm always learning from him.
  • I love that he loves his family. He wants to play with the girls as soon as he gets home from work. He loves to make his neice giggle. He is always doing a project with his dad. my dad or one of his brothers-in-law. He wants to spend time with his nephews, playing pool or video games.
  • I love that he wants me to be a SAHM. He trusts me with the finances, the meal planning, taking care of and homeschooling the girls.
  • I love that he takes care of things around the house. That he takes pride in our home and works to keep it looking nice. I love that he lets me decorate it how I want. He only has one rule-no floral designs in the bedroom.
  • I love to hear him read to the girls and tuck them in bed at night. He's the best dad.
  • I love that he cleans up after I make dinner. And makes coffee every night so that it's ready when we wake up the next morning. And that he gives Abby, the dog, medicine and keeps up with her treatments.

The list goes on and on. I love my husband more than anything on this earth. I love the season of life we're in right now. I love having kids with him and spending time with him and planning for the future with him. I thank God that He chose Kevin for me.

Alright, it's your turn. What is one thing you love most about your spouse. Leave a comment and let me know. Then, make sure you let them know. Today.

I love Mike for lots of reasons. The top one being that he loves me unconditionally (I think most of the time). He loves his family very much and provides for us all in his own way. I love him for his love of the Lord and how humble he is in serving that same Lord. He allows me to be myself and not someone others think I should be.

I love Phil because he carees so deeply about those close to him. I know that he would do anything for me or Reese and He's a great dad. He really gets excited over the littlest things and is like a big kid. The things he does to get kids, especially his daughter, to laugh, I would never think to do.

I love this post, Michelle, because I was there when you guys were first friends/dating! It's fun that we've watched each other grow up and we're still in love and dating 13-15 years later!

I love Brad because he's my best friend. He makes me laugh, even when I'm trying to be mad at him, and he's grown in the Lord so much that I'm probably most attracted to him at this point when he's preaching. Seeing what God's done in his life over the years is like watching a miracle that's happened over time. God is good.
