Y’all ready to meet another awesome husband? This week, we have Amy from So Many Reads telling us about her husband! I’m loving these love stories, y’all! Let’s get to it!
Jamie: Tell me about how you met your husband.
Amy: I met my husband, Rob, through a mutual friend in college. Rob lived an hour away so we only got to see each other about one or two times per month. Eventually the friendship we had turned into something a little more. One of my memories was that once we went out on a couple of dates, I thought something was wrong. I mean, he was too nice! I had never dated a nice guy. My mom and sister convinced me to give him a try and 17 and ½ years later, we are still together!
Jamie: When did you know he was the one for you?
Amy: I don’t know if I remember the exact moment that I knew he was the one for me, as I think it was a growing attraction and love that formed over the months and years we dated.
Jamie: What’s your favorite small thing that he does for you?
Amy: I think my favorite thing that he does for me is the way he makes me feel. He likes to be physically close to me. He likes to hug me and touch me whether it is his arm around my shoulder or holding my hand. I will stop at that to keep this rated G. Physical touch is his love language and makes me feel loved and cherished. Even though we have been married for 14 and ½ years and I don’t look like I did when I was in my early 20’s any longer he has never ceased to make me feel beautiful.
Jamie: What’s the grandest gesture he’s ever made, or your favorite story about him?
Amy: This is hard since we have been together for so long. I can’t think of a specific one, but one gesture he does all the time is that he makes time for me. We both work full time, have a son in junior high and a daughter in elementary school who both play sports, so we are busy. He always makes time to focus on us and our marriage. I think a lot of men leave that to the wife, but my husband is more intentional about it than I am. I love that he does that.
Jamie: What is your husband’s sexiest feature?
Amy: Well, I think you are probably going for a physical attribute (which I can think of a lot), but I am going to say the way he is with our kids. There is nothing as sexy as a Dad with his children. From the time they were infants and he was snuggling them while watching TV to now when he is playing catch with our son in the backyard or kicking the soccer ball around with our daughter. He is also the first one to teach them things whether it is how something works or how to ride a bike. He just loves our family so much and puts everything he has into it.
Jamie: If he were competing in the Husband Games, which event would he win?
Amy: He would win the “ability to organize anything” event. Whenever we have to really clean something out like the garage or basement or we have to start a home improvement project, he can organize it into easy steps that make the best use of our time and money. It is his super logic powers that give him this ability. It is sort of annoying to my impulsive self. Sometimes I don’t want to measure twice and cut once. I want to skip the measuring and just cut to get ‘er done! He is so dang patient.
What a great guy! My heart melts a little every time I think of dads with their kids. Big thanks to Amy for sharing her husband with us today!
