My Favorite

You see this guy right here? The one I'm staring at lovingly who is also staring lovingly back at me. He is my favorite. My absolute favorite. He's my best friend, my companion, my better half, my eternity. He is my husband.

There are so many things that I love about this man of mine and I honestly can't get enough of him.

1. He is so goofy! We can laugh about anything and he is always looking for ways to make me smile. Even when I'm having my worst days, I know as soon as I get to be with him again, he'll make everything better.
2. He loves me so much. He is continually showing me how much he loves me and takes care of me. I never imagined that someone could love me this much. Or that I could love someone just as equally. We have people we don't even know constantly telling us how cute we are together and that they can tell how in love we are. That's always nice to hear. We committed to forever and plan to make sure we stay in love that whole time!
3. He works so hard for our family and takes such good care of us. I know going to school full time and working so much is really stressful and even though we are still working it out, I think he is doing an amazing job. I just love that he is such a hard worker.
4. He is always up for anything and keeps our marriage FUN! He lets me plan all sorts of crazy vacations and always helps me make plans to achieve our dreams. He supports me in any endeavor and lets me be myself always.
5. No matter what we are doing, we are usually holding hands. I can't imagine anything more comforting than to feel the warmth of his hand on mine. To look over and know with just that small gesture, it means he loves me no matter what and is by my side through anything.

Derek is simply my favorite. I'd rather be with him cuddled on the couch with our puppies than anywhere else in the world. I love waking up next to him every morning and falling asleep next to him every night. I love that I get to be by his side for the rest of eternity.

Most I just love him. Everything about him. He is the best thing in my life and I could not be more grateful to call him mine.
