Considering he is the only person on planet earth that I allow to call me SUSAN, I think he is worth keeping around for at least another 16 years. Maybe by then, he will stop antagonizing me, or I will wear him down...either way.

Great tribute!

This is one of the best "husband" posts I've read. He's a lucky man to have a wife who appreciates him so.

(and is that last picture in Nauvoo? We lived near there for 4+ years and it looks awfully familiar.)

That was beautiful!!

suzie said...

I had to come and read it again, okay for the third and fourth time...
anyway, it is so sweet, and I know every single sentence is the absolute truth and that is what makes it so appealing. Anyone can make up a love story, but to actually live one, so lucky and so deserving. I love you.

Cynthia said...

Wow! He's a keeper. And you are amazingly creative to come up with that many reasons! This takes 'count your blessings' to a whole new level.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
