Ode to Steven

Today is the 29th birthday of my dear hubby Steve. Here is a top 10 list of why i love him ever so much:

10)His ability to fall asleep in any position, any place, any time astounds me.

9) His patience with my daughter Cleo. Even when she dug up a hole* in our brand new backyard, the ink on the check still fresh, he didn't even kill her. (*by hole i mean large crater,)

8) His awesome hair ringlets and fine behind

7) In order for him to go from a stand still to running he must move like a locomotive, he get his arms going in motion, soon after his legs start chugging, it's pretty sweet, if you haven't seen him run you should ask him to next time you see him

6) He is an exceptional listener. When we very first started dating it was one of the first things that really hooked me. All the other millions of boys I had dated (ha) weren't nearly as good of listeners, but he listens so intently and asks such thoughtful questions.

5) He eats everything I make for him with a smile on his face.

4) He doesn't whine when I pick up and skip the country, even when my whole Stowell family is at our house and I leave, he still doesn't even whine, that really happened, and it probably will happen again some time.

3) He is hot

2) He works real hard for the money. But really, he does work hard to provide for me and my habits.

1) He puts up with me and HE LOVES ME!

... AND I HIM!

Happy birthday bubbahz. I love you and look forward to many more fantastic celebrations in the years to come.
