1 and Counting...

Today is Whitney and Shawn's first anniversary and in honor of that Whitney has decided to make a list of her favorite things about Shawn, one item for every year of marriage.

1. His butt.

OK, I did think it would be easy to just make one because well, one is easy but its also kind of a cop out so here's my top ten list for Shawn:

10. His butt (Hi mother-in-law, maybe you could just skip straight to #9?)
9. His dimples
8. His creativity in many things including, writing, drawing and animating
7. His willingness to go with the flow in almost any situation
6. His kindness towards everyone, seriously, everyone
5. His patience with me and my crazy emotional self
4. His love and esteem for each of his friends
3. His love and real concern for each of his family members
2. His pure, childlike faith
1. His love for me and the way he shows me and tells me he loves me everyday

I realize these statements seem simple but that's because with Shawn it is simple. What you see is what you get. I'm really a very lucky girl and I know not everyone gets to be as lucky as I am.
