Perks of Marriage

He takes my car in for oil changes, car washes, and puts gas in my car.

I live with my very own spider killer.

He cracks me up every single day.

I have a personal chef.

I live with my best friend!!! How fun is that?!

He's my big, strong body guard.

He is so creative! He takes me on the best dates and the most fun vacations.

He's my secret keeper.

He makes me wanna be all mushy gushy, lovey dovey. I never thought I'd be THAT girl, but I am hopelessly in love with that man of mine.
