Almost 5 years ago (August 10th to be exact) I had my first date with Corey. Sometimes I look back and think, "Man it's only been 5 years? Feels longer, like forever even" and other times, it feels as though we've only just begun.
I've mushed and gushed about this guy many, many times before, and I'll spare you a good portion of the gooeyness today, but I couldn't possibly talk about things that make me happy without talking about the man I love like no other.
Corey's one of those people you can't help but like, whether it's adults or kids, old or young everyone who meets Corey love him. He's unassuming, sweet, kind and a little naive. His compassionate nature and soft spoken ways make little kids gravitate to him and they really make him a great dad, they make him a great husband.
He remembers that flowers for no reason mean more than flowers on Valentine's Day. He understands that sometimes my
So much for not being mushy, oh well. It's the way it is, Corey makes me mush. He also drives me bonkers, ya totally nuts but that's part of being married. I don't believe for one second that two people can live under the same roof and not have moments of frustration. Not that we argue often, we don't, but we both have our days when we simply and completely frustrate the other one. It's how this life of the married rolls.
Without a doubt, Corey is truly one of the things that makes me happy. And in keeping with things that make us happy, I'll share two of Corey's most favourite things. Ice cream and Cadbury milk chocolate. Oh, he loves all kinds of chocolate and treats, but Cadbury's takes the cake. Each Christmas I purchase a 1kg bar for him and he savours each piece as though it's his last. I on the other hand, love the chocolate and scarf it down (when it's mine that is) as if it won't land on my hips in the morning - maybe I'm a little naive too. As for ice cream, I'm pretty sure he'd sleep with a bucket and a spoon if I hadn't implemented the NO ICE CREAM IN BED rule after there was a major body pillow catastrophy.
