Why I love him...a birthday tribute

Because he works hard to provide a good life for us...

Because he keeps me in check when I want to spend our money on stupid stuff...

Because he knows me well enough to know if I'll like or not like something...

Because we share a lot of the same feelings on things, thoughts, likes and dislikes, but also have enough not in common to balance each other out...

Because I can be my real self, I don't have to hide any part of myself from him...

Because we are both so silly and life is so much fun with him...

Because he tells me that certain songs remind him of me (like the one on here--it's our song)...

Because he's my hero; he stands for me and protects me...

Because he leads our family well and makes the hard decisions....decisions that I could never make...

Because I have never respected another man more than him...

And because he is a man that deserves my respect...

Because he truly cares for his family above all else and shows that he does...

Because he is a man that I can trust, depend on and have confidence in...

and even for the seemingly annoying things like...

the way he makes a silly face in every picture, so it takes 5 minutes to get a good photo. This bugs me so very much and he knows it, but I secretly love it because it's who he is.

how he rocks back in forth in bed like he did when he was a kid. This, too bugs me, but I so miss it when he's not there.

how he has to have something explained to him visually. I can NOT explain things visually, so sometimes it's hard to get my point across. It's frustrating but, I love it because it's part of who he is.










Babe, there are a million more reasons why I love you, our family and our life together, but I can't write them all. :) You are the man of my dreams, the love of my life and the adventure of a lifetime. I love you so very much and hope you have a wonderful birthday.

Happy 27th birthday, my love!!!

Brandie that was soooo sweet! I am so happy that you guys have each other. You both deserve it and I'm so proud of the amazing woman you have become! Not that you weren't always amazing but I'm so thankful you have found such happiness!

Oh, and Jason is the SAME way with pictures, he always makes a goofy face or doesn't even look at the camera and I have to take like ten pictures just to get one decent one! But I also love the ones that turn out goofy! :)

Happy late birthday to Ross!
