100 Things I Love About My Husband

Today is my husband’s birthday.  I am thankful to be part of his life and grow with him daily.  I have thought of all the different things I love about him and came up with a list.  I think as moms sometimes we focus too much on our kids and forget the joy of being a wife, not just a mother.  One of the best gifts I can give my children is a good strong marriage, so here is a list of the things I adore about my spouse.
