{Show and Tell Tuesday // How to Win My Heart}

Linking up with Momfessionals for Show and Tell Tuesday // How to Win My Heart!

This sweet man and I are working on our 20th year together!!! T-W-E-N-T-Y!!!! We started dating when we were just babies in high school...in case you were wondering! :) And he still steals my heart every single day. Since we have been together for nineteen years I will share 19 very random things that he does that wins my heart...

1.) He lets me listen to Praise and Worship music in the car, even though it's not his absolute favorite.
2.) He makes all of my crazy project ideas happen...and doesn't complain (too much!).
3.) Some nights he will take bedtime duty and read to Mason (even though he hates reading out loud) just to give me a little break.
4.) He is the BEST dad and plays with Mason no matter how tired he is and agrees to all of his ridiculous ideas!
5.) That he will slow down or pull over on the side of the road because he knows that I would want to take a picture of the sky, the sunset, or an old barn. I don't even have to ask.
6.) He drives everywhere that we go. And I mean everywhere.
7.) He still calls me things like beautiful and sexy after all these years and at times when I feel the furthest from that.
8.) He lets me steal all of the covers.
9.) Mason can do something and Nate and I will just look at each other with the same expression, no words are needed because we are feeling the same exact thing & the love and pride he has for Mason could just make my heart burst.
10.) He is a family man no doubt and there is no place that he would rather be than with Mason and I.
11.) How cute he is when he dances.
12.) That he still holds my hand...when we're walking...when we're in the car...on the couch...anywhere.
13.) When he sends me a random "I love you and Miss you" text throughout the day.
14.) That he does homework duty with Mason every single week. It's pure torture for all of us, but Nathan has a way about it that makes it bearable. Mason responds so well to Nate when it comes to homework.
15.) Nathan leaves for work around 5:15 am every morning. He kisses me and tells me he loves me every morning before he leaves...even if I don't wake up or respond.
16.) How he doesn't meet a stranger. He will walk up and talk to anyone. I've seen him make so many people's day just by talking to them.
17.) When he brags on me and tells people how blessed he is and that he doesn't know how I work a full time job, take care of two five year old boys after school and keep the house clean, do all the laundry and put it away and have supper done by the time he gets home, etc. He appreciates me and this makes my heart so happy!
18.) How he talks me off the ledge when things upset me. Not literally, but I tend to over analyze and get so worked up and upset over a situation that it causes me anxiety. Nathan always has all the right words and makes me see the other side of things. He always knows how to make me feel better.
19.) He loves and embraces every part of me. Even all of my weird quirks.

I truly feel like I hit the husband lottery. Nathan is an amazing man and I am so blessed to do life with him. I always tell people how he's the calm to my chaos and that we just balance each other out. It's so true!

  5. This is so sweet! I love it. Seth knows when I'll want a picture of something too and doesn't complain anymore when I make him wait to eat dinner or stop to take a picture. However, he doesn't so it spontaneously like Nate, so that is really impressive!
