My husband has a special dance that he made up just for me.  He pulls it out of storage when I’m sad or feeling blue.  We call it the ‘Happy Troll Dance.”  Sad huh?  He sticks his arms out to the side in a bit of an arch and starts jumping around one foot at a time bringing his knees almost to his chest in a circle…. He hops and bends so that it looks like one continuous motion.  And he makes the goofiest face. 

If the ‘Happy Troll Dance’ doesn’t work he walks up to me and says ‘Courtney, I love you thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much!’ all the while stretching his arms wide open all the way behind him so they almost touch then he pulls his hand out puts up him thumb and forefinger and says ‘and a little bit more!’  He told me that the first time he did it he was trying to touch his hands behind him to make it a perfect circle and he couldn’t quite reach….  A small simple thing but can you imagine how wonderful that is going to be as a family tradition with our kids?  

There is one thing about my husband that I cherish.  No child we ever bring into this world will ever doubt that he loves them…. I am truly blessed to have this wonderful man in my life. 

Today is more of the same, wait for the workmen then go to my mom’s to work on her house…  I will try to be back later..  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Song of the day?  Wouldn’t It Be Nice by the Beach Boys.  Why?  Cause this is how I am feeling about Ryan being gone.  It says what I feel like saying but it says it in a bit of a happy sunny wistful way, not so much in the blue depressing sort of way that other songs have.  So there you have it I miss my husband and I’m upbeat about it.  I think I may just be a little nuts!  lol

  1. Your hubby sounds like a keeper to me. And it really makes me happy to see other married couples other than me & my hub being in so much love.  Couples like you and your hubby we need more off in this world.

  2. I love it when I see other happy married couples. Makes me that much more grateful for my happy marriage. I know what you mean about having a child who will never question his/her father’s love and devotion to them. My husband bought a little Jayhawk onesie for our little girl the other day and told me that he bought it so that he and his baby girl could watch basketball together. Stay strong!! -Michelle

  8. There are some good men out there to be found.  I love the dance though, that sounds so cute.  He sounds like he has a sense of humor too?  I love it when husbands have a sense of humor.  It is good to laugh and that he can make you laugh and knows when your in a bad mood that you need one.  Beach Boys.  Wow!!  Love that too.  Take care
