#1 Person I Am Thankful For

Happy Friday Friends!

I hope you all had a great week and are gearing up for an even better weekend. STAY TUNED! There's a HUGE Amazon giveaway at the end of this post! :)

Today, I wanted to take the time to reflect on thankfulness. During this time of year, it is common for us to reflect and think about all of the things we are thankful for and I almost did a "things I am thankful for" blog post (because let's be honest..I have LOTS to be thankful for!), however, I just wanted to focus on the #1 person I am thankful for.. my husband.

My husband Marcus and I are actually celebrating our "date-aversary" today so this post is right on time! We have been together for nine years today and I honestly couldn't be happier! It doesn't even feel like it has been nine years because time flies when you're having fun. He's seriously my backbone and my complete other half, and I have no idea what I would do without him!

Let's take a moment to look at some of our early year photos together, shall we?

This is one of the first pictures we ever took together back in 2007, but we were just friends. This was at my birthday dinner!

It's so funny to look back on these photos because we were SO YOUNG and had no idea what we were getting into with this relationship. We started dating when I was 18 and he was 20. It's scary to take a leap of faith and date your best friend because you never know how that story will end, but God made him just for me and I am so glad I sent him that relationship request nine years ago today. He's literally my BEST best friend and knows everything about me and vice versa. He has stood beside me in hard times and happy times. I know we will face many more hardships and victories as the years go on, but I also know that we can face anything.. together.

Here's a list of a couples of reasons why I am thankful for my husband.

1. He is a hard-worker.
2. He protects and provides.
3. He makes me laugh.
4. He tells me when I'm wrong.
5. He SPOILS me. :)

6. He loves my Mother ALMOST as much as I do.
7. He's always trying to please me/make sure I'm happy.
8. He's extremely dependable.
9. He's so selfless and has a great heart.
10. He tells me I'm beautiful every single day.

11. He's a realist.
12. He prays for me.
13. He values me and the work I do for our home.
14. He's trying his best to show me the world.
15. He deals with my jolliness before December & throughout the holiday season. :)

16. He encourages me to follow my dreams.
17. He takes out the trash, haha
18. He's extremely handsome and sexy!
19. He takes me out often.
20. He LOVES me. Flaws & All.

I could seriously find a zillion other reasons why I am so thankful for my husband, but I will stop now! He is seriously God sent and I couldn't have asked for a better husband. I thank God for him every single day. Have you reflected this year on the things/people you are most thankful for? Be sure to let them know as often as possible because life is SO short! I love you Marcus Johnson and I can't wait to have your babies some day! :)
