Reasons #83-#85 Why I Love My Husband

Ryan came home yesterday from his weekend trip to Darwin.  I’m thankful he had this opportunity and I’m thankful for the future possibilities that were explored.  But mostly I’m thankful to have him home.  It’s him being away that has inspired this edition of Why I Love My Husband (Click here to check out Reason #82).

#83- I miss him when he’s gone.  I know I love him because of how much I miss him.  I miss him because of who he is but also because of what we have together.  As often as we fight or misunderstand each other, we laugh and encourage each other more.  When he’s gone, I miss all the little moments that happen throughout the day that make our life together special and unique to us.Screen Shot 2017-06-13 at 8.58.16 AM.png#84- I love him because he brings me breakfast in bed.  As I type this I have an empty bowl next to me.  I don’t remember how it started and it isn’t every morning but many mornings, Ryan brings me my usual.  Greek yogurt, two Weetbix and a drizzle of local honey.  It’s a nice way to start my day.

#85- His kisses.  When Ryan is gone, we talk on the phone before bed.  We catch up, swap stories and relax a bit before saying goodnight.  Over the phone you can tell someone you love them and they can hear that in your voice.  However, the phone is not a good conduit for sending kisses.  I love my husband’s kisses and I love being kissed each day we are together.  It takes him being away to remind me how special those kisses really are.

 

5 Facts About Darwin Australia

Today Ryan is on a plane to Darwin.  He is going to be gone for a long weekend on a scouting/vision trip with some of our other co-workers.  I’m not going with him for a few reasons but mainly I just finished this semester (all three final assignments done and submitted!) and I need a break.  I’ve also been experiencing some gallbladder pain (more on the scheduled surgery later).  So Ryan headed to Darwin without me but it should be a great trip and he gets to experience another part of Australia.

Here are 5 facts about Darwin and Ryan has promised an Instagram picture a day while he’s gone so follow him @lpturntable for a taste of his experiences.Screen Shot 2017-06-08 at 4.55.38 PM
