Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I've been putting together a list of things that make me feel love and happiness from or in regards to my sweet husband. I figure that now would be a good time to finally post this list since Valentines Day is next week (however, who knows what kind of condition I'll be in on Valentines Day) AND because our little family of two will be becoming a family of three this week. I'm excited for our family to grow but have absolutely LOVED these first few years of dating/engagement/marriage. Sometimes I get sad thinking that "it" is about to be over and then Darin reminds me of all the new memories we'll create and how we'll fall in love in new ways and that "it" will never go away. Good thing I have him.


Love is...

...when he comes into the kitchen while I'm doing the dishes and asks if he can take over.

...craving ice cream while on campus but feeling guilty if you get some without him with you because you'll be missing out on an opportunity to bask in the joy of creamy goodness together. 

...sitting on the 7th floor of SWKT while he is on the 8th and every time the elevator door opens getting a little giddy inside thinking it could be him walking out to meet up for dinner.

...being disappointed when the elevator doors open and it's not him.

...when the alarm goes off and your husband turns it off and gets right back in bed and pulls you over to cuddle with him before being separated for the day.

...when he holds out his arm for you to grab as you walk down icy stairs on your way to a cold football game.

...when you look up while in the computer lab and unexpectedly see him walking towards you and your heart flutters.

...when you realize that  every family picture you have is a family picture of the two of you.

...when he sees you in pain while driving home from ID and quickly switches to the passenger seat while you go to the bathroom even though he has a killer headache and would prefer to rest.

...when he could stay home sleeping but says that he would prefer to get up at 5:30 am and go with you to drop off your sister at the bus station.

...when every time you get in the shower you see that your loofa is hanging on top of his for easier access.

...when you run out to drop some cookies off and he says that he wants to drive you there.

...when he texts you and tells you he misses you even though you just saw him an hour before. 

...when you are scraping the ice off the car windows before leaving and he runs out to do it for you.

...when he sneaks you an extra slice of pizza or a donut from his class.

...when he massages you EVERY DAY during the last trimester of your pregnancy.

...when you meet up and you start walking quickly and then realize that he isn't walking next to you anymore because he is stopped 10 feet behind you waiting for the kiss you neglected to give him.

...when you wake up earlier than he thinks you will and he tells you to get back in bed so that he can follow through with his plan to bring you breakfast in bed.

When he tells you you're his best friend.

When he tells you you're adorable.

When he tells you he loves you.

I love you Darin. 


  1. This is the cutest thing I've ever read!

    1. I doubt it's the CUTEST thing you've ever read with all the blogs you read, but maybe it means more because you actually know us :). Thanks though, that's really sweet of you to say.

  2. It really is a super sweet post. I even forwarded it to Rob to remind him of how cute we once were (and because he also loves to read stories of people who are as happy as we are). You guys truly are adorable. I'm glad you have found so much happiness in your marriage.
