Now... on to my Birthday Tribute to my Husband..
He is a handsome, caring, loving, witty, selfless man.
He works sooooo hard to give us a life that is truly blessed.
I have been a stay at home Mama for 15 years, and he cringes when I mention I might want to go back to work one day. I love that about him.
He is a joy to cook for.
He is adventurous, an avid water skiier, and hunter, and a true manly man.
He has Popeye arms, and the best legs I have ever seen... bar none.
He could care less what I do with the house, what colors I paint it, how I decorate it, what I buy for it.
He feeds my need to shop... he knows retail therapy is a true therapy.
Sometimes he'll even go with me to see how happy I get.
He doesn't ask for much...
Good food, a made bed, and action in that bed. That's all.
He is very easy to please.
He drives me insane most of the time, and we do argue from time to time, but
he makes it really hard to stay mad at him.
He teases me about being "so" Italian... but I know he really loves it.
My Mama adores him, and feeds his cookie addiction.
She always tells him that if push came to shove... she would be on his side... because she knows me too well... and it would be my fault anyway.
He truly, wholly, undeniably adores his sons. He swells with pride when he is with them.
He loves all the stares and whistles he gets when he shops with them... from other women.
He always tells me how much "play" our boys are gonna get someday...
Yeah.. he's so sweet like that... telling me such things... just what every Mama wants to hear about her darling baby boys.
He was raised by the same kind of man. My Father in Law shows his love for his son, just by the way he looks at Bill. It is palpable. It is real. It is so wonderful to see.
I don't know what I ever did to deserve this man...
But he is mine... all mine.
I love you, Bill.
You drive me bonkers... but I love you.
Oh, and no.. this tribute does not mean you are off the hook for Easter. LOL!
The boys and I have some special things planned for you...
I hope you enjoy your day.
Pictures will follow.
