Russell and I have been married for 4 years now. What a good husband. He has loved me through some pretty rough times (specifically: grad school. pregnancy). I love so many things about him. No matter what kind of a day he is having, he always has a smile for the baby. I love how playful and gentle he is with Dorian--such a good dad, who wants to make sure his baby has all the opportunities he didn't have. He is always willing to help out with the baby or the house when I ask. He is always analyzing himself and figuring out how he can do better and be happier. He is brilliant when it comes to learning new things, and can do anything he puts his mind to. I love how he always asks me for feedback when he is writing a piece of music or designing a logo or a website. He respects my opinion, even though he is the expert. I love the conversations we have on all kinds of topics. I love how comfortable he makes me feel about the way I look--I never felt more at home in my own skin than I have since I got married. I love how easily he forgets my mistakes--I can do something completely stupid, and by the next day, it's like it never happened.
