Favorite Things Friday - The Hubs

So I was looking through all my posts and realized I wrote about Hubs hunting at once before when I was bragging on his hunting skills but for all the FTF's I've written, I have not mentioned him.  That just seemed like I should maybe let you know he rates above the music, quilt shows, coffee mugs, and Dirty Little Secrets.

So here's the thing... HUBS RATES over it all. He's a good man. We've been together 10 years now, married 6 and while we've certainly had our ups and downs, we are prevailing.  This year, most recently, we hit a rough patch.  It resulting in an extremely real conversation but one which just had to be had. Both of us have determined to do better, show each other our love and appreciation more. To stop taking the other for granted so much, you know?

Hubs has come out of retirement and is now finishing up his time at the police academy to start his new job as a deputy sheriff.  The irony is, he's been  law enforcement/military his whole life. It's a long few months but he's going to graduate top of his class and I'm very proud of him for working hard at doing his best through it all.
Hubs makes me happy, he's my home, and I'm lucky to have him. I love you, hubs.

Awwwwww such a sweet post. I think the key to a successful marriage is always talking (and listening ) about the relationship. Marriage is also like a car - you have to service it regularly!

Im glad you and the hubs found each other and are so happy.

The thought of hubs being a deputy sherrif just made me think of Dukes of Hazzard.

Sorry, but as we don't have sherrifs like that my only frame of reference is tv programs!

What a nice Favorite Thing post. It can be easy for all of us to forget that our other half is our favorite thing, we get so used to them being around. So good for you for telling the world about your wonderful husband.
