14 Reasons Why I love You

This year I implemented a countdown to Valentine's day. On day 4 we were to tell each other 14 reasons why I love you. I sent Adam my list via text. They were each carefully thought out and I thought they were very sweet. Adam sent me four reasons via text and said I would get the rest later. As we were alone sitting at the dinner table he verbally went through the reasons counting down on his fingers. I don't know how many he recited because by the time he got to reason # 8 I didn't hear anything else.

REASON #8: You try to be neat and organized but you are NOT. I love that about you.

I just sat there with my mouth open. I think by the look on my face he felt he needed to say something. "The house is always clean! I just love that you try to be neat and organized but you're not."

I just want everyone to know that he is still alive.

I was really expecting some spectacular declaration of love, yet that was about how life goes sometimes! It shows his honesty, and I'm glad he's still alive :)
Oh, and I have never seen your house messy, and don't we all struggle with organization? Who wants to organize my stuff?!? - not me :(
