Thankful Thursday #1

Christmas 2009

Yep this is going to be a sappy one. And long. Sorry :)

Ok so that gorgeous man up there is my husband, Billy. We have been married almost 7 years. 7 of the most wonderful years of my life. Our story is an unusual one. You can read about it here: Love Story

So why am I thankful for him? Well let me count the ways.

#1. He is funny. He has a warped, twisted sense of humour that I just love. Because our first year was spent just talking, him having a great sense of humour was a big factor in me falling in love with him.


105. Something funny
Out take Valentines Day 2012

He honestly has me in stitches A LOT! And thankfully our sense of humour is very similar so we come up with the wackiest things sometimes that would make most people shake their heads.

#2. He is a wonderful Step-father to Ashley. When I first told him about Ashley, intellectually disability and all, I honestly though that would be it and he would be running for the hills. But it didn't phase him in the least. Ashley was 11 when we met and it usually took Ashley a very long time to take to people. But he loved Billy from the very beginning, and vice versa.

#3. The way he loves me.

His love for me is immeasurable. I am humbled by it all the time. I love him so much it hurts. I feel like we as a pair have our own gravity and no one else can penetrate it. 

03. Love

He is always so happy to do whatever it takes me to make me happy. He is such a great sport and will join in on my silly photography ideas at the drop of a hat.

#5. He dances with me even though he thinks he is terrible.

#6. He supports me is everything I do. 

Whether it's taking me to Trader Joe's on 2 hours sleep so I can get healthy food for my weight loss journey or to a scrapbook store so I can get card stock, he never complains. 

What I am mostly thankful for is that he chose me.
