Love is an action verb

*Mushy Alert*

I love, love. Yep, I'm one of those mushy people who loves to watch romantic comedies even though I know they're unrealistic. I love to watch those videos where soldiers are reunited with their families and I cry every time...even if they're being reunited with their dog. I am fully aware of how ridiculous I am, so at least I'm not delusional.

In the past I have hesitated to write about my relationship on this blog, mostly because I  fear judgement of other bloggers, but that's no way to live or blog. So, I'm giving a shout out (blog out?) to my lady! I am so proud of the person I get to call my girlfriend, the woman I get to build a home and a family with, my best friend.

This girl, right here:

You see, Cass is not only beautiful, she is strong. Shes emotionally and physically strong. No joke, she is pouring cement as I type! Her strength has inspired me to try things I wouldn't normally do, like tackle the oleanders in our backyard. 
She is extremely patient...when it counts. A little over a year ago, I would've said she needed more patience. However, having a kid has helped me see that she may not have the most patience for little things, like waiting for a gas pump, but she has tons of patience with Albert & me and that's where it counts. She is patient when I'm grumpy or frazzled and she has tons of patience when Albert does things at his own pace. She's a wonderful mom and Albert is crazy about her! 

Last, but not least, she is one of the hardest workers I know. This is the second week in a row that she has picked up side jobs on her days off. Remember how I said she's pouring cement; yeah it's her day off and its hot outside. She works hard for her money! Check out this sidewalk art (okay she just painted it) that she did last week! 

She shows us she loves us everyday. She doesn't just say it or talk about it, she shows us. She works hard and on top of that she shows us patience, while inspiring and encouraging me to be better. I couldn't ask for more. My wine-stein runneth over.

I warned you this would be mushy.


  1. You sound so happy! Everyone needs someone like that. My husband is also impatient about things that I think are silly (like grocery store lines or red lights), but incredibly patient with my occasional dramatics.

  2. Isn't it funny how that works? It amazes me that she has patience with me when I'm crazy but gets so frustrated over little things like that! I'm just grateful so for her patience towards me!

  3. Love is an action verb-- you are so right. In any relationship. I wish you and your family many years of love and happiness.

  4. Love the mush and love that you have such a special person to share your life with. Happy sits day!

  5. These gifts are great and very thoughtful!
