if you were to marry taylor gilbert...

sometimes I am overwhelmed with how wonderful my mr. is.
he is so patient and kind and bighearted.
and I don't know how I got so lucky to get to call him mine!
I never want to forget how good he is to me, so I'm dedicating a little post to him.
(complete with lots of pictures of my little dreamboat)

if you were to marry taylor ray gilbert...

+ he would give you back scratches every night--you don't even have to ask!

+ he would find new addicting iphone games every week, share them with you, and then sit with you on the couch for an hour while you compete against each other.

+he would NEVER leave the house without kissing you.

+he would talk in metaphors and big words, and be really patient when you don't understand.

+he would want to go out to eat every night (maybe if you were a better cook than me, this would be different).

+he would always answer your phone calls, and if he wasn't able to, he would always send a text saying, "Can't talk right now, but you're beautiful."

+he would notice that your laptop battery is running low and would plug it in for you--just because.

+he would invite you on nightly walks. and while on the walk, he would always make sure he's the one walking street-side.

+he would always be listening to audio books--and tell you all the plots in great detail.  his excitement and little smile are SO sweet during this.

+he would tell dramatic stories of his day that will always make you end up on the ground laughing (like when he split his pants crotch to belt line in public last week! hahahaha sooo wish I was there for that!)
+he would carry the grocery bags from the store to the car.  and if there are too many for him to carry alone, he will ALWAYS offer to carry the cold milk in winter ;)

+he would find funny youtube videos or cool music videos and tell you to stop everything you're doing to sit next to him and waste time watching them.

+he would cuddle you ALLLLL night long. there wouldn't be a night that you woke up not holding hands (or re-reaching for each other's hands). ---i am just a sucker for this, my favorite thing EVER.

+he would call you nicknames constantly--you'll be surprised when he ever uses your real name.

+he would always be willing to accompany you on shopping trips.

+he would always open your door for you.
+he would always forget his wallet.

+he would tell you you're beautiful multiple times throughout the day.

+he would talk about all of the fun "daddy" things he has planned to do with future gilbert littles.

+he would talk about dreams and future plans with you--and you would always feel comfortable knowing he will always take care of you.
+he will call out to you if you're in a different room for more than a few minutes and say, "What are you doing? I miss you!"

+he would send you funny texts throughout the day or random "I love you" "Have a great day" "You are everything to me" texts.

+he would scrape the ice off of your windshield every morning.

+he would surprise you with cute gifts.

+he would be extremelyyyyy patient with everything.  even when you are being mean & completely unreasonable, he would be on your side, support you, take the blame (when he did nothing wrong), and never, ever raise his voice or show any kind of anger (this may frustrate you when you're really upset, but afterwards you will just sit and think, "how the heck is he so GOOD to me?")

+he would always jump at opportunities to serve others.

+he would bring home flowers for you, but MORE importantly, he would send flowers randomly to women who have made a difference in his life.
+he would have a billion crafty and creative ideas--he would be your own personal pinterest.

+he would bring up constantly memories from your wedding day that would melt your heart and think, "you remember that?"

+he would be your go-to stylist, and he will always have the best opinion on outfits

+he would love you unconditionally.

if you were to marry taylor ray gilbert, you would really get a keeper.
but I'm really glad you didn't because I really like him for myself. ;)
I have felt so nostalgic lately and just so grateful for this man I share my forever with.
a big hoorah for love everywhere.
what would we do without it?
