When we first started dating I had recently purchased a chest freezer. Having lived with a tiny little freezer compartment that was too small for ice cube trays…I had missed having ice cream in the house and with all the extra cold storage I stocked up. Without knowing any of that Dave saw the freezer with several containers of ice cream and immediately gave me a hard time. A reference to love and obsession was born…and even after putting it in context for him the teasing continued.
And then one day I told Dave that I loved him more than ice cream.
And with each passing day it seemed I found a new thing to love him more than.
More than the sun.
More than all the sand on the beach.
More than all the fish at Hanauma Bay.
More than all the lights in Vegas.
More than all the houses for sale in Kirkland.
More than all of the paint colors at Home Depot.
More than my D700.
More than …well you get the idea.
The list is long and more than a few things have been recycled
And he’s loved me more than some pretty amazing stuff, too. Namely xbox, league of legends, football games, and Curry House. Oh, and ice cream.
We know it’s a little sappy. And a little silly. But we also know part of building a happy life with someone is making an effort to make sure they know they are loved and appreciated. Every. Single. Day.
