I Love You Because....


I love you because you believe in God.

I love you because you look so darn good in a suit.

I love you because you are a good friend not only to me but to your own.

I love you because you get a real Christmas tree with me every year and you hate every minute of it.

I love you because you go to White Sox games with my whole family when you like the Cubs.

I love you because you get up to close the window in the middle of the night when it's raining while I pretend to be asleep.

I love you because you drive me anywhere and everywhere I want because I. hate. to. drive.

I love you because you go to weddings with me for people you have never met and you hate weddings.

I love you because you dance with me at said weddings even though you hate to dance.

I love you because you have no rhythm.

I love you because when you hear Journey in the car you turn it up.

I love you because you think I'm beautiful even when I'm stuffing my face with pizza and sweets...and I love you because you listen to me complain about why I shouldn't have eaten those things the next day.

I love you because you look genuinely sad when I leave in the morning...and excited to see me when you come home.

I love you because you have learned that only two-handed hugs are acceptable.

I love you because I can have serious, intense conversations with you...and then in the next sentence talk about how you like to eat poop sandwiches.

I love you because I've never laughed so hard with anyone else.

I love you because you tell me bedtime stories when I'm not sleepy.

I love you because all of your stories start off, "Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess...." and they are always about me.

I love you because you don't get mad when I say I'm bored every night in the summer when nothing is on TV.

I love you because you rub Neosporin on my cuts and scrapes and put on my bandages for me like I am 5 years old.

I love you because you are always on my side.

I love you because you go to the Dr. with me and sit in the waiting room for 2 hours with nothing to do.

I love you because you talk to me about Days of Our Lives and know everyone on the show and what their story lines are.

I love you because you know all of the new gossip on Jon and Kate but you claim to not care.

I love you because you are the most hard working and ambitious man I have ever met...but I love you more because you have a wonderful balance of work and family.

I love you because you want to have kid(s) with me.

I love you because when we go to get ice cream you know exactly what I'm going to order before I do.

I love you because you will fix the running toilet even though you taught me how last week.

I love you because you turn the sound down on your zombie video games because you know it scares me.

I love you because you inspire me to be a better person.

I love you because you encourage me with every problem and truly care about my feelings like no one ever has.

I love you because you're you.
