The best husband in the world. No, seriously, he is!
I started writing the story of my husband's and my relationship and how we ended up getting married. But then I realized that, while it is a great story, it didn't have as many brag opportunities as I wanted.
I admit it - I really like to brag about my husband. He is so awesome that it's really easy to do! For example: my husband built our house. No, he is not a contractor or a professional builder at all. He is a machinist (he makes things out of metal, like the cone part on the front of a fire engine, or pieces for the toll roads, or computer parts). He is just really good with his hands and figured he would learn a lot. It took him about three years start to finish to build our house. He and I became a couple in year 2 of the house. He did practically all the work himself. The only exceptions I know of were pouring the cement, hanging drywall, and siding (although he said if he had to do it over, he would do the siding). EVERYTHING else, my incredible husband did himself. If he didn't know how to do something, he researched it and got assistance from friends until he had a good idea of how to do it.
It constantly amazes me that my husband took on such a huge project. That he stuck with it for three years! I LOVE the fact that my house is a constant reminder to me of the ingenuity, perseverance, hard work, and talent of my husband. I love how we've already shared such special moments in our house (his proposal, our first kiss, our wedding night, etc) and look forward to making many more memories together.
See, my title for this post was right. My husband is the best in the entire world. Not because he built me a house. But because he makes it into a wonderful home.
I love you so much Ken! You are the second best thing that ever happened to me!!!* My life has been so much more full and richer since we got married. I am SO glad you chose me! You are my favorite person & BEST friend <3
