5 Reasons I Love The Grump

  1. He gives really good (and frequent) shoulder massages.
  2. He has sexy arms, and they’re only getting nicer with all the lifting he has to do at work.
  3. He gets along really well with my family and supports my close relationship with them, encouraging me to spend time with them when I can.
  4. I once experimented with slices of potato on pizza.  It was a dismal failure.  Even though the middle was almost entirely raw, he ate the whole thing so that I wouldn’t have to eat any of my horrible disaster.  The raw dough rose and fermented in his stomach, which later gave him a terrible case of heartburn and made him sleepy.  But he did it anyway.
  5. When I told him that if we ever win the lottery, I want to help a struggling family every Christmas to get back on their feet by paying all their debts, he could have said, “that’s an awful lot of money to be giving away when we could be saving it for Ali’s future.”  Instead, he said, “I love that idea.  But let’s try to make sure it’s a family with kids since children are impacted more.”

He’s generous and loving, even though most people don’t see it.  He is protective and will stand up for anyone being beaten down unfairly (to a point of jumping into a fight for someone he doesn’t know to help them out).

And so even though it’s not the best cake I’ve ever made, I made it for him.  And I know he’ll eat it because #4 proves the incontrovertible fact that he is a human garbage disposal. :love:

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to my future husband.
