My FI is wonderful for putting up with my obnoxiously picky, traditional family! And for helping me keep calm when dealing with anything wedding-related with them!

My FI works so incredibly hard. He works 14-16 hours everyday, and only gets long weekends off. I know he hates his job, but he loves being able to give us the life we want, and the wedding details that I care about waaaay more than him. He drive an extra 3 hours a day because he sleeps better when he gets to come home at night and sleep beside me. I love the sacrifices he makes for us and I love that even though he is exhausted and may act like a grumpy old man a lot of the time he always makes sure I feel loved.

Every time I’m anxious he calms me down. Every time I’m down he makes me smile. He’s encouraging with and has pushed me to do well in school.  Motivated me to get in better shape (without ever making me feel like I’m not the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on). He truly is my best friend. I can see how hard he’s stirving to finish school and get a good job. How he’s planning to be a good father and good husband. I like how he plans and hopes and dreams. He wants 3 kids, I want 2… we’ll figure it out. We’re barely finishing school and we’re already looking forward to our retirements. I am so proud of him and the man he’s grown to be in thes laste few years. I hope he’s proud of me.

And yea some days he’s crabby and untalkative. It’s my job to pick him up on those days and make him smile. I’m so damn excited about the future.

My FI told me he didn’t care for pets when I met him. He was allergic to my cat. However he is the cat’s best friend now. Pets him, plays with him, buys him nice cat food and cat scratchers with cat nip. He even lets him eat nice chicken off his plate. I don’t even do that.

There are so many amazing things about my FI.. He really is my best friend and I just love spending time with him. He perfectly complements me in that we are both mature and professional in our day to day work lives, but just a couple of silly, dorky kids when we’re alone. i love that we can be playful together.

Right now, one of my favorite things in particular is how excited he is about our wedding. It makes my heart melt every time I overhear him talking about it to one of his friends or when he tells me about an idea he has for our reception. I love that it’s truly going to be “our” day, not just my day. I love that he’s looking forward to it as much as I am.

I wish there was a like button!

My SO is always there for me and puts up with my cranky butt. He is so patient with me . I recently had surgery so I wasn’t and still am not able to walk like normal, he did everything. Laundry, cookingm cleaning, grocery shopping, bought my pads and tampons lol. You name it he did it. Even when I forgot my Vegnews magazine in the car after my Dr’s appt and didn’t remember until almost midnight, he put his shoes on and got me my mag even when I told him it was fine. He’s so sweet and caring. We both laugh at each other silly jokes and I love it! Also he open his heart to my compassion towards animal and took in my three cats even though he didn’t agree with having three cats. There’s was only two for a while but I was fostering and volunteering at an animal shelter and fell in love with this little kitty I had to bring her home. Now he plays with them and cuddles with them, it’s so sweet to watch.

My FI came around right after I had snapped and left an abusive relationship. Much later I am still dealing with the consequences of it, and my FI has been by my side the entire time. 

I was freaking out about dipping into my savings account to pay for my lawyer fees, and FI went to the law office behind my back. I went to pay for the lawyer today, and his secretary told me that my FI had paid all of it. Over $5,000 without telling me. Like seriously, FI?! 

Dumbfounded. I’m so lucky.

I could write a book about my husband & how sweet he really is. πŸ™‚

I have type 1 diabetes. Sometimes I get so tired, I could literally just fall where I am and sleep for DAYS! My husband works nights. There are many mornings this man comes home from work after busting his butt off and makes ME breakfast! After I have slept all night long. He gets home a little after 6 AM so I am in no way asking for him to make it, he just does. πŸ™‚ Its just those little “just because” things. I love those! Like one morning he comes in the bedroom & kept trying to wake me up. I was being grouchy but finally got up to find candles lit in the living room, one pink rose on the table with breakfast made. It was like a Thursday or something. No special day, just… Because!

He says the sweetest things. All of the time. He told me when he holds me I make a candle light up inside of him. (One of his recents.) :’)

One winter when we still lived with our parents a big snow storm came. Trees went down everywhere, where he lived (which was up a hollow & would have took workers until late that night or the next morning before they got to his road.) His dad even had to park and walk home after work. Well he had been all week without seeing me so he took a chainsaw (SERIOUSLY) and went up the road chopping all of the trees up (they wasn’t HUGE but he couldn’t lift them unless he broke them up) it took him hours, in the cold SNOW. But he finally got it done and showed up at my moms house, cold & tired but so happy! πŸ™‚

This one is another REALLY random one. But our first married Valentines day 2011, he woke me up by opening our bedroom door. He told me not to look until the door closed. When it did I opened my eyes to see a card taped to the door. It read to follow the 62 hearts for the 62 days that we had been married. I opened the door and he had 62 little candy hearts & candles leading to him, a diamond necklace, chocolates and other lil cheesey (I love cheesey) things. He then took me to a ski resort a few hours from where we live.

We have been through so much togther. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life who never fails to make me smile, over and over again.

He does so many small things. Everyday, that may not seem like much to others but it means so much to me. Yea, he does some romantic/cheesey things like I mentioned above. But, its the day to day stuff that makes me love him more and more each day. Just having that partner in life with me everyday. Working together as a team. Its amazing! Just, the small things. Cleaning and cooking together. Grocery shopping together. Making the bed together. Just having him there, everyday being the sweet man he is & being my best friend! πŸ™‚

Okay now enough sappy stuff! lol

EDIT: & I must add, my husband works so hard for us! He is such a good hard working man. & Another thing that I cannot leave out. When I had a miscarriage, he was the only person I could talk to, let see me. He cried with me, held me, did everything he could to make me feel better. He let me know that everything was okay. & Even though we had just lost something/someone that meant so much to us that we still had each other. & We could try again another day!

I know exactly how you feel. Somedays I am just overcome with emotions and love for my FI. He is honetly the best man I know. He does anything and eveything for me. I went to school for 2 years and did not have to work and he never once complained. He was rooting me on the entire time paying for my bools, classes and whatever else I needed.

Sometimes when I look at my beautiful engement ring I could just cry. It reminds me how much he loves me and wants to spend his entire life with me!

We have our fights but I can HONESTLY say this man has never once been mean or hurtful to me. He doesn’t yell or curse at me ever. He is so understanding. I’d have to say I’m the irrational sometimes even mean and he always stays calm and forgives me when I’m wrong.

I love him so much and am so lucky he alllllllllllllll mine
