When He’s Silly
If you ask me what I love most about my husband – I don’t even know where I would start. Is our marriage perfect? Absolutely not. But I do feel like we are incredible blessed with a closer than normal relationship. Like every relationships, there are good times and bad, but I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. This guy would go to the ends of the earth for me. If I told him that I wanted to move to Antarctica… he would remind me of the conditions, ask if I was sure, and then start making the plans to move.
He encourages me to pursue my dreams, he supports my BIG ideas, and picks me up when I feel like I’m failing. Our journey, has been an incredibly FULL one, but it hasn’t been without struggle. Through it all, I know that he is the one for me.
If this blog post was the ways that I love him, we would be here all day. So let me just touch on ONE THING!
I love that he isn’t afraid to BE SILLY.
Life can be busy. It is often stressful. You might have so much to do that it feels like your head is spinning. For me, nothing reminds me to let go of it all more than laughter. When Justin wants to, he can be the silliest guy! I love love love this about him.
I’m not sure exactly where we were, but somewhere along our journey through Germany, with roughly 6,000 kms driven, Justin decided to leave me a little surprise on my camera. I am not sure where I would have gone without my camera on me – I can only imagine that it was a toilet break. Trust me, there aren’t many places I go without my camera. Plus Eli and Justin were clearly in the car… So I couldn’t have gone too far.
Justin must have seen my camera on the seat next to him.
He took a picture of himself, showing Eli asleep in the backseat.
Then he must have thought that a funny face was a good idea.
And then, ladies and gentlemen, he decided to leave me dozens of silly face pictures…
He probably knew that I wouldn’t look at my images for a few more hours, and that when I did I would die laughing. Which, of course, I DID!!
It has been almost a year since our Europe trip! As crazy as it sounds, we don’t look at the pictures until I blog them. The reality is that there are just too many pictures, and since we always get home and go straight back to work. We never think to sit and look through all the images. I guess we prefer to see them all sorted and edited. So, almost a year later, when I uploaded this Germany file, so that I could blog about Germany…
This is what I found!
I seriously love this guy. Stay silly Justin! This is why our marriage is as awesome as it is. Being silly is an absolutely must. I don’t know what I would do if you stopped being a goofball. I guess I would have to be a goofball all on my own!
