Today I celebrate the life of my best friend. We're traveling from Tortuguero to Puerto Viejo by boat, then doing whatever the birthday guy wants. If you're into sappy posts about why I love my husband, stick around. In honor of Graham's birthday, here are 32 reasons I love him:
  1. He’s the hardest-working person I know.
  2. He is handsome.
  3. He is goofy. He makes me laugh every day. (Sometimes without meaning to.)
  4. He is great with kids. Our nieces, nephews and friends’ kids love him.
  5. He loves adventure. He goes along with my ideas and has plenty of his own.
  6. He’s patient.
  7. He has the best smile. And he never needed braces, that lucky duck.
  8. He’s generous. He almost always outdoes me on gifts for birthdays, Christmas and anniversaries.
  9. He is passionate about his career. And he has an awesome job.
  10. He lets go of his stubbornness and apologizes more often than I do.
  11. He’s thoughtful.
  12. He loves helping others.
  13. He loves to do his own thing and doesn’t care what people think about him. I wish I could be like that.
  14. He’s tall. I can only hope our future hypothetical kids have his height.
  15. He’s affectionate. I need to be more like him.
  16. He surprises me often with flowers, doughnuts or Doritos, aka all of my favorite things.
  17. He appreciates good food like I do.
  18. He’s kind to everyone.
  19. He gets emotional when watching sad or happy moments on TV or movies, like I do.
  20. He can fix things around the house, and he can install new doors, tile, wood flooring and basically everything.
  21. He’s a perfectionist. If you can him to do something it will be done to the best of his ability.
  22. He gets along with my friends and family.
  23. He’s not afraid of change. Or at least he doesn’t show it.
  24. He supports me in anything I want to do.
  25. He has introduced me to movies and music I never would have known about or watched.
  26. He has a love of life and wants to do as much as he can.
  27. He wants to learn Spanish so he can communicate with my family better.
  28. He is willing to drive us around 99 percent of the time.
  29. He writes me sweet notes or texts to read when I wake up.
  30. He lets me sleep in. (Most of the time.)
  31. He’s obsessed with weather and I know we’ll always be prepared.
  32. He’s smart. He’s so knowledgeable about things I would have no clue about, too.
