Yes, this AND a ring– what a spoiled girl!!)
1. I love her smile.
2. I love her laugh.
3. We went out long enough to know each other well– and she married me anyway.
4. I love her sense of priorities.
5. She cares so much about each one of our kids– she pours energy into each one every day.
6. I love her desire to try new things that benefit us as a family.
7. I love her dogged determination to get things done.
8. I love what she does to our house to make it feel like home.
9. I love how she sets new goals for us as a family.
10. With her it is always ‘us’ and ‘we’ and ‘ours’. We share everything.
