The reason I married my husband is…
219. …he keeps his eyes closed slightly longer than me when we’ve finished kissing. It’s kind of like he’s savoring the moment and it’s so sweet. I love that he doesn’t look embarrassed when he sees me waiting that extra 2 seconds for him to open his eyes after our kiss is over. I pray he never stops savoring our kisses. (I don’t know if you can tell, but my eyes are open in this kiss. This was taken right before we stopped kissing and I was waiting for him to open his eyes.)
220. …we have this extreme connection. It’s really hard to explain, but sometimes if I’ve had a headache all day, I’ll find out later that my hubby has had one all day too. Sometimes we finish each other’s sentences or when I’m thinking about something my husband will start a conversation with me about the very thing I’m thinking about. It undeniably freaks me out sometimes, but I couldn’t imagine having a husband who NEVER knows what I’m thinking.
221. …he could have lied to his friends, but he didn’t. My husband and I met when we were 12 years old. Back then there was a lot of peer pressure for us to kiss one another. Children can be so cruel. Well, one day I happened to be hanging out with my now hubby in his family’s backyard where we were jumping on the trampoline. We spent the whole day out there talking and jumping and nearly killing ourselves trying to do tricks on the trampoline. The next day his friends came over and they starting asking him if we ever kissed and giving him a hard time because he was honest and he said that we hadn’t. At the moment, although we were very young, I knew two things. First, he’s honest. Second, he respected me. Guess what (to my husband’s stupid childhood friends), we kiss all the time now dorks! LOL! And, quite possibly the fact that we didn’t kiss at a young age is why we don’t have babies out of wedlock and all of you guys do. I’m just sayin…
222. …because he often says “so much” when he tells me he loves me. It’s enough to here “I love you,” but it’s a whole other level (in my mind) when the man I married says, “I love you so much.” Those two extra words make my day.
223. …he respects our furniture. Okay, remember when you weren’t married and you were dating guys and maybe you’d invite them over for dinner or to hang out with some friends for game night? Do you remember observing their behavior when they came into your home? Did the guy in question ever put his feet up on your coffee table or lean back in your dining room chair so that is only stood on it’s back legs? Well I know guys like that and thankfully, mine was raised with some home training. While he’s comfortable enough to put his feet up when he’s at home now, he never did disrespect my furniture. Kuddos to my hubby’s Grandma…she raised her baby right!
224. …he understands the trials and tribulations of being a black woman with non-chemically treated hair. My husband was raised in a house full of women so he knows and respects the amount of work that has to go into the maintenance and styling of African American hair. I find it hilarious that when my hubby wants to go to the park or to an outdoor shopping mall he’ll check the weather first, for me of course. He might ask something like, “The weather app says the humidity is 70%, that’s too high for us to be outside because of your hair right?” Yes sweetie, if the humidity is that high, in the great state of Texas we’ve got to find an indoor activity.
225. …he holds the umbrella, but always ends up getting wet. What can I say, my husband is a gentleman. He tries to hold the umbrella so my hair (cause truth be told I’m really not concerned with much else) doesn’t get wet. We have a huge umbrella too so I don’t know why it is that I am usually nearly dry, but my hubby ends up with one side of his body soaked when we’re walking in the rain. He likes to tease me by saying that he knows I’ll melt if I get caught in the rain so he’d rather risk getting himself soaked than me. Come to think of it…he’s partially right.
