9 great things about my husband

It’s my 9-year wedding anniversary this week.  (Nine years married, fifteen together.) And so, a nine-best ode to my awesome husband.  Here are nine great things about him — though, really, I could go on and on:

9.  The mustache.


8.  The pants. 


7.  The way he is so completely stoked to have a wife who’s a writer.

6.  The way he wrestles with our kids.  And reads to them endlessly.  And plays soldiers.  And takes them to the library. 


5. The way he’s completely exhausted at the end of the day, but he fakes it so well the kids never know.

4.  The way he always wants to help.


3.  The way he always looks for what’s right instead of what’s wrong.

2.  The way he says something funny about every 60 seconds.

1.  The sweet and amazing email he sent me on the morning of our anniversary.  Which I think I’ll just keep to myself.

    He is definitely a keeper! I knew that the day he came home from work (kids were playing and were hungry/tired/something, and I guess we were too…) zipped into the kitchen, enthusiastically put some cream cheese and pretzels in a cup for them and suddenly the kids moods and ours improved! No one even asked him to do it, AND he had just come home from work. : ) I’m sure you don’t remember……………years ago! : )

  12. Katherine, this is such a great post (among many). I am amazed at how well you have captured so much about Gordo with just 9 options. 🙂

  13. AH! THE PANTS! I feel sad I’m no longer in middle school and I can no longer see those bright trousers of happiness every bleak morning, but still. 😀
