Because

...he coaches two youth soccer teams even though he has no kids of his own
...he loves to cuddle with his/our kitties
...he loves his mom and sister and nephews, unapologetically
...he will yell at anyone trying to park in a handicapped parking spot who doesn't have the plaque, sticker, or license plate allowing them to do so
...he sometimes call to check on me for no reason
...he likes me as I am and wants me to lose weight solely because of my health and my own desire to do so
...I've got him addicted to Gray's Anatomy now, too
...he loves the Raiders
...he has nearly as many pairs of shoes as I do
...he puts up with all of my emotional baggage without complaining about how much it weighs
...he has the cutest butt ever (seriously)
...sometimes, when he cooks, he puts the cats' fishing pole with feathers attached toy in his back pocket so that they can continue to play while he gets dinner ready
...he makes me feel safe and empowered all at the same time
...he makes up his own words to popular songs and then sings them fearlessly and without shame.

Happy 1st Anniversary, Baby!

Adorable picture; TCB sounds like a great guy and he is just as lucky to have you as you are to have him.
