Let me count the ways…

just a few of the things i absolutely love about my man {in no particular order}:

1. he picked me a gorgeous wildflower bouquet yesterday | 2. he is the cutest daddy! | 3. he has the tenderest conscience of anyone i’ve ever met | 4. he has the most eclectic, wonderful interests: bagpipes, fish traps, bow-making, etc – it’s never dull around here! | 5. he’s my buddy. everyday. | 6. he’s taught me to relax…sit still…drink my tea and just be with him | 7. he has an appreciation for beauty and even agrees that “pretty napkins” are a worthy splurge..ha! | 8. he’s a cuddler. | 9. he’s a musician, a poet and a hunter – such a grand combination! | 10. he insists on family Bible reading daily | 11. he’s willing to try new things | 12. he thinks i’m fantastic | 13. cutest. chin. ever | 14. he held my hair while i puked for the first 5 months of pregnancy…

Oh, how I love my honey. ❤

Knowing him and loving him makes me want to strive to excel in all things creative, domestic, godly…

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Sorry for the sappiness….sort of ❤
