Last Friday was Mark's 29th birthday, but we ended up not doing anything because we were both very ill with a horrible head cold. So in honor of his 29th birthday I decided to share 29 things I love about him.
1. He has stood by me through every challenge and hardship we have encountered.
2. Mark is willing to do all the crazy little projects that I decide have to be done right now. Paint the kitchen at midnight? Sure!
3. The way the world melts away when he wraps his arms around me.
4. Mark can always make me laugh.
5. The fertility drugs have made me a little....intense, and he has taken it all in stride.
6. He always will eat the food I prepare...even the total kitchen flops.
7. He works so hard, and plays just as hard.
8. He allows me to be me in whatever form I happen to be at that moment.
9. He provides so that I can go to school and not have to stress about working.
