So in honor of it being Valentine's Day as well as my husband's birthday I wanted to write an entire post dedicated to him and only him. And so this is where I commence my list of "Ten Things I Love About Him":
3. How he loves our girls.

4. How he surprises me.
I love surprises, so how on earth could I not love that Mick is always giving me little surprises and things to look forward to. Like when he tells me and the kids that we need to get in the car, make sure we all have our togs because where we are going is a surprise. Or such as today, for Valentine's Day I have no idea what he has gotten... but I get little clues. Ah I love it.
5. How he will watch girly movies with me.
Now Mick, being a guy, does not readily enjoy watching "girly movies". But since I have known him he has shown great love for me in taking the time to sit through many a film that has no action or explosives or special effects to watch something that instead is full of dialogue and romance and probably will make me cry at some point.
6. How he cooks for me.
Oh man what girl doesn't love a man that will cook for her!? Yes I love it. I love how I am almost never alone in that kitchen when I am cooking dinner, he is always by my side helping me or cooking the dinner for me. Thank you.

9. How he loves to joke and tease and make me laugh.
I love this about him. Sometimes it may come at the wrong moment and it maybe annoys me more than delights... but more than not it just makes me fall in love with him all over again. And since I know I am the kind of person who tends to be more heavy and serious about the things of life it is priceless to have a man who always knows how to lighten things up and make me smile again.
10. How he loves me.
This ofcourse is the best of all. Mick loves me and he tells me often. And more than that, he shows me his love through his kindness, his forgiveness when I make a mistake or act like a fool, and his committment to our life together. I love you Michael Travis. Happy Birthday, and Happy Valentine's Day.
