Ode to Hubby; Just Because

It ain't Christmas, it ain't Valentines Day, and this ain't a birthday or any other holiday poem.  I'm writing this just because.

My hubby and I have been together for over ten years.  I don't usually write about him because he's a VERY private person.  He doesn't like when I mention him in my blog or post his pic.  His reaction is usually something like, "don't post that!" "Don't tell me this is for another one of your blog post!"  He'll give me a hard time when I stop to take pics of Princess, but will later turn around and say, "can you email me that pic without the watermark?"  I laugh hysterically and joke around with him saying something like, "I thought you didn't want me taking pics for the blog.  Now you're begging me to send them to you? hehe"  I make fun of him because  I know deep down he loves that I have this blog.  He just likes to put up a front.  He's the first to say, "Hey, that was a nice post."  He's also a great copy editor.  Sometimes he'll even point out my typos.

With all that said, I'm so lucky to have him in my life.  He's supportive.  He's a great hubby, and the best dad Princess could ever have.  I definitely lucked out big time because he was the one that almost got away.

Ladies, you know what I mean.  Most women don't go for the nice guys.  We want the ones who are a little rough around the edges.  I was one of those girls growing up.

My hubby came into my life unexpectedly.  Even though he was the complete opposite from my usual type, I knew he was perfect for me right off the bat.  But, it was difficult for me to pursue a relationship with this very handsome, nice young man.  Being the bold person I was (and still am) I asked him out to dinner anyway.  We had a great time and when the bill came, he insisted on paying.  We fought over it, but he ultimately won.  It took a while, but he eventually won my heart too.

People always ask what keeps our relationship going so strong.  "It's not easy," I always say.  We met when we were kids.  We were full time college students and part time telemarketers at a bank.  We were young and inexperienced.  We became the best of friends before we were lovers.  I can't lie, I can be a handful and he can be too.  But we make sure we talk things through.  From time to time we also do nice things for each other.  It could be something as simple as me making his favorite meal or him running out to the store just to get me some eggo waffles.  Diamonds are cool.  But it's the simple things like coming home to a clean house, and seeing how great he is with our daughter that I find romantic.

I often say he's the one that almost got away because I felt that I didn't deserve him.  It took a while, but I finally realized he was the one for me.  I'm glad that I never let him go.  We've been married for seven years and we have a beautiful daughter.  I couldn't be happier.  I have a man who supports me in all my endeavors.  He has my back no matter what, and I'll forever be his ride or die chick.

This ain't another Christmas, Valentine's Day, anniversary, or any other kind of sappy special occasion love letter.  I just wanted to write this post just because I love my hubby.

How often do you tell your significant other you love him or her?  Do you only exchange gifts on holidays or do you randomly give something "just because?"

My husband and I are not big on the gift giving. I know...weird.

Cheers to the ride or die chicks! Lol.

We are all about the just because. Our stories sound a bit similar. I'm so happy I didn't let my husband get away. He is the best thing that's happened to me and I make sure he knows it! You guys are beautiful!
