- He always gives me the biggest piece of dessert. He's like that. Generous.
- He never complains when I eat the rest of the dessert in the middle of the night.
- He goes to quilt shows with me (and acts interested)
- He knows why it’s important not to cut off the points when you quilt and many other reasons that make a good quilt. He’s like that. Interested in what I’m doing.
- He has never belittled me in front of family or friends. Or even to my face.
- He likes to do all the driving.
- He never lets me drive in bad weather without ample warnings. He’s like that. Concerned about my well-being.
- He can always make me laugh.
- He makes fun of me in humorous ways that expose my biggest flaws.
- He tells me every day he loves me. (except for that rough patch in year 2)
- Whenever I think life is the cruelest hoax ever he tells me everything is going to be OK. (and he hugs me when he says it)
- He’s a homebody like me.
- For a long time when the kids were little he cooked dinner every Saturday night to give me a break. He’s like that. Considerate.
- When I did the early morning paper route he went with me every Sunday because the papers were so heavy. (for 5 years) He's like that. Dependable.
- Have you seen how he looks? He’s more fit and handsome than ever.
- His work ethic is flawless. He has always done his best to support the family and keep it going.
- His integrity is flawless. He taught the kids about striving for excellence and a multitude of other ways to be a decent human being.
- We work well together. He has always done his share of the household chores and more often than not more than his share.
- Every week we go to the grocery store together and then he helps me cut up all the veges for the upcoming meals.
- He never complains if sometimes those well planned out meals turn into cheese sandwiches or top ramen because I’ve been working on my projects all day.
- He always cleans up after dinner and does the dishes.
- He makes me feel cherished.
- He never complains about all the birthday and Christmas presents I buy for myself.
- Sometimes he seems too good to be true. I think he is.
- Once he surprised me at the airport and went with me to visit Mackenzie when I thought I had to go alone. He’s like that. He never lets me go to important things alone.
- In the beginning he told me in 30 years being together would be better than ever. He didn’t lie.
- On our 2nd date he bought me groceries when I thought I was just giving him ideas of meals he could make for himself. He’s like that. Helpful without being invasive.
- We had to stay together. Neither one of us wanted custody of the kids.
- We’re interdependent and individuals at the same time. He’s like that. Respectful.
- He’s my best friend.

|Kathy Porter (from my quilt group) and I were asked to show a quilt.|
You've all seen mine so here is hers. She's always winning awards for
her stunning & original designs. This is from some doodles she likes to do.

I just had to post another video. I can't believe how smart she is. Ryan said she'll just approach them and then sit, lie down, roll over a couple of times and then look up expectantly for a treat . . . . before they even say a single word. Too cute.

A week later she miraculously turns from a baby into a toddler and enjoys a day out at the beach. Get ready for a cuteness attack. Ryan is having a blast with her, as this is his first dog. We're glad we deprived him of a few childhood experiences so he could have a few happy new firsts in his adult life. :)
Meeting Trixie, the emperess of the house, for the first time, hoping they will be fast friends.
