thankful on paper (2)

i'm joining no. 17 cherry tree lane's thankful on paper this month
week 2: i am grateful for my husband, brandon

next month will mark the two year anniversary of our first date.
we've known each other for just over two years.
we met just months after i moved to boston and was attending citylife church, where my three roommates went.
brandon was the first person i met the night i visited cg.

two of my favorite photos...they capture new england fall so well!
thank you, brandon, for loving me unconditionally & just as i am.
you don't try to change me, but encourage me to look outside of myself to others.
i admire your desire for community development work & ambition.
your hard work & perseverance inspire me not to settle.
telling your southern self to deal with boston winters because i love snow & cold.
i'm thankful you encourage me in work that brings fulfillment & professional growth.
you let me cry when i can't explain it.
your faith is strong & your passion to go to seminary is awesome,
can't wait to see what's next!
i'm grateful for your sense of humor, love of cooking & restaurant knowledge.
i love that we got a dog in our first year of marriage when we said we'd wait at least a year.
your talents never cease to amaze me-- whether it's carpentry [our beautiful coffee table] or graphic design [our wedding invitations, my blog header]
or leading a bible study, i'm amazed!
a special thank you for putting up with the ever growing list of things i can be fanatical about:
making lists, the red sox, planning our meals for the week, maps, twitter, trader joe's, making 1 hour trips for bagels or ice cream, new projects, this blog and anything pumpkin flavored!
i can't wait to see where the rest of our life together leads us.  i love you.
skagway, alaska [on our honeymoon]
on our wedding day

  2. I LOVE reading the "thankful for husband" entries. In a time when people so often give up on marriage it's encouraging to read things like this.

    Thanks for sharing!
