Continuing Courtship

Today David and I celebrate our 13th anniversary. One thing I absolutely adore about my husband is his knack for continuing our courtship. He still woos me every day. Here are a few things he does that make me fall in love with him every single day.
  • He makes it totally obvious that he wants to be with me. When we are home together he often asks "Which room are you going to be in?" just so he can be in the same room with me.
  • He constantly tells me that I'm beautiful. And he LOOKS at me. Even when I'm not feeling particularly attractive David will look at me in a way that lets me know that he thinks I am beautiful.
  • He kisses me in front of our children. (They should have NO doubt that their parents are in love.)
  • He pays attention to the things I am interested in. He is one of very few men that can quote lines from Anne of Green Gables and Pride & Prejudice.
  • He takes care of me. A few weeks ago I sprained my ankle and David made sure I was doctored well.
  • He works so hard to support our family. Besides the times he spends playing basketball and softball, everything he does is for us.
  • He thanks me for cleaning the bathrooms and doing his laundry. It's so nice to have the work I do noticed and appreciated!
  • He tries to dress in coordinated outfits when we go to church. (Notice the picture above. I wore black and gold and so did he.) :)

Happy Anniversary!
Loved your list. Perhaps he could give my hubby a few pointers on complimenting? =)
And wow, he can quote those movies? Suddenly, I feel very impressed!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your comment made me laugh! Be sure to show off a picture of your "organized" dirty dishes! LOL!

Congrats Jessi and David. Many marriages by 13 years have gone to the curb by now. I'm proud of your commitment to making it work and being good examples to your kids and others around you. What an adorable couple you both still are. Happy Anniversary!!

Congratulations! The greatest gift anyone can give to a child is parents who love each other.
