2 days you cherished the most with your husband being together.

Besides our wedding and the births of our kids

1. Going to Seoul with him to pick up our first adopted son. It was so awesome to share that moment when we first laid eyes on him.

2. When I woke up after surgery to have my arm put back together, he was so worried and so tenderly solicitious.

2 material things you could give your husband if you just inherited a fortune.

2 two places you have lived with your spouse.
