Eight years ago today, I married a man who:
*makes me laugh every day
*makes me feel like I can do anything and succeed
*makes me feel alive
*makes me feel beautiful
*works his ass off to make sure I'm happy
*loves good music
*loves his family and his momma especially
*does not believe in giving up
*would run off with Eddie Vedder if given the chance (man crush!)
*loves lazy weekend nights at home
*makes a mean burger on the grill
*has the funniest laugh
*is filled with integrity and honesty
*doesn't watch/participate in organized sports
*thinks Frisbee in a parking lot at a concert is the best sport
*has the best childhood stories about neighborhood kids
*hates the word "nougat" and thinks "loaf" is the funniest word in the dictionary
*hates having his picture taken and won't smile if there's a camera on him
*whips up a tasty fuzzy navel
*loves to dance with me in a clockwise motion
*prefers homemade dinners over going out
*is never afraid to try anything new
*is an endless romantic
*puts up with my camera/photography obsessions
*is a human blast furnace
*had Jewel's "My hands are small I know..." stuck in his head for over a year
*wants to learn to play the banjo
*loves Taylor Swift for some reason and justifies it with "She sings from the heart."
*I love more and more every passing day

Happy Anniversary dude.

Aw, this is the cutest thing I've seen in a dang long time. CONGRATS to you both...you're a great couple, and I'm sure he's got a list just as long, or longer!

I'm still in awe about the Jewel thing...and still can't relate to the burger on the grill thing...although, he puts on the dog at backyard parties!

Steph, I am so glad you found my blog so I could read this lovely testament to you, your husband, and your marriage. I cried reading it. We just celebrated 7 and I hope to be where you are when we reach 8!
