An Ode to my Husband for Valentine’s Day

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to have in love couples pass through my doors each season on the verge of a major life change. I get to witness firsthand how they work together through the trials and tribulations of wedding planning, make compromises, laugh together and finally share the joy of their wedding day as the next chapter is about to begin. This is so special to me and something that I do not take for granted. My wish for each one of these couples is that their marriage is even better than their wedding day. I feel lucky enough to count myself among those couples. In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, I want to share 5 reasons why I love my husband!

He makes me laugh more than anyone on Earth. I truly believe Charlie Chaplin’s words, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”  It is my favorite thing to do and thankfully I found someone who I think is just down right hilarious! I know that a day won’t go by without a good laugh or two or ten and it makes the stressors of life a little easier.

He is my best friend. Hands down! We spend A LOT of time together and I always want more! We have our own little language. We love movie marathons. We joke about treating ourselves because we think we deserve it.  There is literally no one else that I would want to go hand in hand through life with.

He amazes me with his smarts! Thankfully, he is my ying to my yang when it comes to the “other” side of my brain.  He has a voracious appetite for learning new things and is my “engineer”.  Running your own business is a lot harder than it looks but lucky I have his support and mind for numbers.

We share the same values. I love how sweet and sensitive he is. He values time spent with family and friends. I love how kind and patient he is with others. He does the right thing -always- even when it is the harder decision.

He is going to be a great dad. We are expecting our first child in April and I can already tell how this life change has made him an even better man. This little boy is so lucky and so am I!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! My hope is that you find the one that makes you laugh, makes you a better person and the one you want to do life with!
