Madly in Love Monday
I am madly in love with my Engineer this Monday because he is comfortable in his own skin.
We were picking out yet another rosebush from a local nursery. As we were walking back to our car with Engineer's latest baby in hand, I asked, "You know that we are now officially and firmly planted in the 'Old Folks' category, right?" He replied, "Are you saying that because we feed the birds and have a rose garden?"* Uh...yeah...
Engineer does his own thing no matter what and I love that about him. For instance, the fact that after a begrudging start with a couple of roses, he seems to now be a rose bush collector. (There are worse and less productive hobbies out there.) He gently tends and nurtures those plants and loves them because I love them...and because he loves a challenge.
Engineer, I am madly in love with you because you are you.
*Other correct answers were: we go to bed at 9:30pm, like a cup of tea before dinner, doesn't like change, shouts at kids to "get off his lawn", etc. Okay, I may have made one of those up...but I won't tell you which one...
