The number one way to my heart has to be communication. Talking to me, letting me vent, responding with answers that make sense and show you are listening, and complimenting me are all ways that make my heart sing.
I'll tell you how my husband won my heart, though!
The second thing that Eric did to win my heart was agree to let my dad go with us on our first date! Yes, you read that right! We met in the spring of 2002 right before Easter. I was a pretty new Catholic at the time and my dad had agreed to go with me to the Easter Vigil Mass. I had never been and wanted to experience this particular Mass.
On that Saturday, Eric and I were completing a phone call (we still had not met in person) and I wanted him to go with me to the Mass, but I was afraid to ask him if he minded if my dad went with us. I worked up the courage to ask him to go with me and dad, and he agreed without any hesitation!
I think I swooned!
He showed up at the house, met me, met my parents, and off we went to church with my dad in the backseat!
I think that is the moment I fell in love. A man that agrees to a dad on a first date, and a church date at that, is a man of integrity. Also, we were 27 and 33 when we met. Certainly past the ages of needing a chaperone! However, it just meant so much to me that he didn't bat an eye at including my father.
There are so many things that my husband does for me on a daily basis that speak directly to my heart and soul.
Eric is an amazing cook!
Even though this dog drives him crazy, Eric still loves on him.
Watching Eric interact with our boys can still bring tears to my eyes.
He really loves to buy things for me. Recent purchases have included clothes, shoes, wireless speaker, makeup, and earrings. Speaking of earrings, I couldn't decide on one or two colors, so Eric bought me every color offered! He goes overboard like that, but it sure makes me feel special!
These little pink beauties showed up on Christmas morning.
