Today I decorated for Christmas with that same guy while the snow fell.
6 years can change a lot of things, but he is still my favorite.
Our relationship, our marriage is still just a baby, but reflecting on our few years shows me that we're changing and growing and writing a great story. And since it's the season for favorite things, here's 6 reasons why I just can't stop loving him.
1. Those honest eyes.
I may tease him for his inability to hide a thing. But it's his transparency is what drew me to him 6 years ago and I still love he shows me everything with a look.
2. He makes me laugh.
He just does. It's the best.
3. He holds me.
The last three years have thrown a lot at us, but he's carried me through the hardest parts.
4. He makes me better.
Nate's a planner. I am not. Nate's organized. I am not. He loves me despite my rough edges, but he also smooths them out.
5. The way he works.
Nate is faithful in the little things. He works hard and remains humble.
6. He loves Jesus.
And he spurs me toward loving Jesus more, too.

Happy six years, sweet man. I love that I get to keep dating you,
and I can't wait to see what the next six years will bring.
