So 10 years ago, my wife and I went on our first ever date.
It wasn’t anything big. After my softball playoff game, I picked her up, went home to shower, and then we headed to the Casino, followed by a walk downtown.
I don’t know if at the time she expected to still be with me in 10 years, but I was smitten with her.
And as I said during my wedding speech, I knew she was perfect for me the moment she uttered those three magical words: “Go Habs Go.”
But she’s perfect for me. And I love her so. With that being said, here are 10 reasons I love my wife (I could have come up with a bunch more, but one main reason per year):
1: She’s funny. She’s always making me laugh with her silly jokes.
2: She doesn’t take things too seriously. She can have a good time doing almost anything.
3: She’s athletic. We first met playing ultimate, and since then have played a ton of sports together.
4: She’s a great mom. She’s made a lot of the big decisions to get the girls to certain stages of life.
5: She makes up silly games. She’ll take almost any object and create a fun game.
6: She’s creative. Home-made cards, changing lyrics to songs, poems, etc. She does a lot of creative stuff.
7: She laughs at my jokes (very important). It makes me want to keep telling them just to see her smile and laugh.
8: She likes to talk. She may not think so, but I love listening to her tell her stories of the day.
9: She loves dancing. It makes me smile everything she does a dance routine.
10: She’s beautiful. I stare at her all time, quite often when she’s not looking. She just doesn’t know it.
