Marry someone handy.

Thank God I married a man who enjoys working on stuff around the house. Just in the past few months, he has saved us a couple thousand of dollars. Our laptop had issues, he took it apart and fixed it. Our dryer wouldn’t turn on, he fixed it within 2-3 hours and it didn’t cost us a cent. Same thing with our washer last weekend. I cannot count the number of things this man has fixed in our almost nine years of marriage.

Speaking of marriage, we will have been married nine years today. Almost to the big TEN. 🙂

Craziness. The time has flown by in the recent years.

I am thankful to have such a great husband. He might be forgetful, (Yes honey, I will not forget that you forgot Mother’s Day this year), but I am lucky to have him.

He is a wonderful father. He loves to play with the kids. He takes over parenting duties without me having to say a word. He teaches them so many things and hates when his babies don’t feel well.

He cleans, the kitchen. 😉 He has to have a clean sink before bed. I only wash dishes when he is on duty or on deployments.

He spoils me. He will go without to get me or the children something. And honey, it would be nice if you would not make me feel guilty for wanting to do the same for you.

He works hard to make sure the kids and I have a good life. He provides well for our family and we appreciate it. I am also thankful that he is willing to work as hard as he does so I can stay home with our kids. The past four years have been some of the best in my life.

Even on the days where he drives me absolutely BONKERS, I am very grateful to be married to him. We’ve had our share of rough days, weeks, and even months, but we have come out stronger for fighting for our marriage. I am hoping we can be happy together for many, many, more years.

I love you, Jason. You’ve been my rock for the past nine years. I could not have asked for a better dad for our children. You are smart, caring, loving, and funny.

Happy Anniversary!

P.S. Thank you for being so handy. It makes the frugal part of me jump for joy. Not to mention is it very “manly”.
