Pure & Simple Just For You

Let me pause between today's "Ethics of Managed Care" and tomorrow's "Ethics of Physician Assisted Capital Punishment" to celebrate my STBH. You know from his site that he is clever, funny and a wonderful father. But you should also know:
1. Sometimes we lie awake at night and try to name all of our favorite 80s songs and then remember the lyrics so we can sing them together. But we're too lazy to get out of bed and look up the lyrics.
2. Every time we wake up together he tells me how beautiful I am.
3. My superhero identity is The Beautiful Beautinator.
4. He can take me back down from level ten angry/frustrated at the world with a few words.
5. Ever since we started dating he has been sending me text message haikus. I have them all saved in a word file. Some day I might share some.
6. He is one of the most honorable men I have ever known. And I am an army brat so I have high standards for honor.
7. When we're out in social situations I can feel his eyes on me across the room. I can feel how much he loves me across any distance.
8. He is needlessly self-deprecating.
9. I never write anything here that he doesn't already know.
10. No other person could have made me believe in forever again.
