sparkling spotlight: volume 1

i have decided to start a semi-regular spotlight on my blog of a person of my choosing. in order to be eligible for this prestigous recognition, you have to meet some stringent expectations: 1) i have to know you, 2) you have to know me, and 3) you have to be nice.

the first person i have chosen to spotlight is my fiance, chris. (applause)

a few things i love/know about him:

  • he is currently a senior at west point. although this was/is a difficult thing to work through sometimes, i love his dedication and growth over time
  • plays the most amazing bee-tar ever
  • shares my sense of humor
  • thinks before he speaks
  • we are great travelers
  • will be a fantastic father
  • is very thoughtful at all times
  • perfectly fits this quote from the fray "when i'm losing my control, the city spins around, you're the only one who knows, you slow it down"
  • is always up for a walk
  • has the perfect 'emily head-shaped' nook on his shoulder

a few things i don't love about him :)

  • the smell of his farts
  • being so far away
  • his propensity to over-help (although i secretly love this...i don't always at the time)
  • driving too slow
  • that one song he plays over and over and over on the bee-tar
  • his ant joke

above all, he has changed my life for the better and i cannot wait to be his wife on june 6th or 7th next year. he is a romantic in every sense of the word. i love you, chris. there are so many trite things i could say, and i could go on for days, but this quote fits perfectly:

Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life

into a golden haze. --Elinor Glyn
