33 Things I Love About My Wife


Is is that time again? Seems like time is speeding up.  That (and Eisntein's Theory of Relativity) would explain my weight gain.

So as I contemplate another anniversary, I thought I would share some of the things I love about you.

  1. You always know what I need, even when I don't.
  2. Your smile.
  3. Your sassy attitude.
  4. Your no-nonsense business approach.
  5. You cried when you saw the whales off the Big Sur coast.
  6. You took up scuba diving so we could do something together, even though you were scared out of your wits.
  7. Your laugh.
  8. You convinced me that getting out of bed at 4:30 AM to work out was a good thing.
  9. You took up yoga and meditation.
  10. You love to cook. And eat. And drink wine.
  11. You continued to dive, even after getting tossed around in the waves at Monastery Beach.
  12. You like to ride bikes.
  13. You know just what our boys need.
  14. You read "potato chip" novels to unwind.
  15. You've changed directions in your career more than once--and by your own choice.
  16. You never wavered about Sean's recovery: "he's going to be fine" has been as much a command as a prediction.
  17. You got your degree from San Jose State while you were pregnant with Sean.
  18. You flew to Boston, got an apartment and got a job in three weeks, with no resources.
  19. You managed to get a speeding ticket in our clunky Dodge Duster.

  22. You've been a role model and inspiration to your nieces and nephews.
  23. You introduced me to The Poker Girls, and their husbands.
  24. You got me to buy a house before I was ready.
  25. You herded the horses back into the barn when you had to.
  26. You always demonstrate the importance of family.
  27. You're consistent about making me sleep on the left side of the bed.
  28. As soon as your uncle said, "don't make a sharp turn in the dune buggy" you went and did it. And popped the front tire.
  29. You've always picked me up when I felt like crap.
  30. You never let me feel like crap for very long.
  31. You never apologize for who you are.
  32. You take care of your needs.
  33. You said "I do". And continue to say it.

Happy Anniversary honey.
