My Husband

My husband is one of the nicest people I've ever met in my life. I'm not just saying that because I'm married to him and in love with him, but because he truly is one of the most caring and understanding people I've ever met. He treats me with kindness and tenderness. He's always there for me when I need an ear and he's always there to listen to me ramble when it probably never makes sense to him. He's funny and has a great sense of humor. We laugh and joke around a lot which really makes life fun. We share the same values and the same beliefs. He's the ying to my yang.

He introduced me to hunting when we first met. I remember early on during our dating days when he'd travel over to Louisiana to hunt. I never grasped the excitement of it back in those early days. All I could think about was the fact he was away from me and we couldn't spend time together. I should have known early on that hunting would always be a part of our history. Not that that's a bad thing, no, it's a wonderful thing!

I know that there are other wonderful guys out there in this country, but I'm so glad that I found mine and that we enjoy doing some of the same things together. Here we are together this year posing by a Bob cat shot by my husband. I was sitting in a stand not too far from his that morning and heard him shoot. I sat in the stand wondering what he'd gotten. When we reunited after the morning hunt he showed me the Bob Cat. I hadn't seen a deer that morning so I have to admit that I was glad it was just a Bob Cat. Don't tell him that!

It's great that you two share the love of the outdoors together and also know how to lighten life up with humor.

The wife and I are very similar and it makes life worries and things that much better.

Want tell him....mums the word! Great picture of you and your hubby together in the great outdoors! My husband-to-be at the time brought me a Bob Cat to my apartment and he was so proud of it. First time I had ever seen one! Pretty cool!
