the husband wish list. 

“Kind”, “Strong”, and “Loving” are qualities most girls want in a husband. In this list however, I decided to go beyond the general characteristics—the ones that should be a given anyways.

I wrote a wish list. Things that aren’t necessary but dreamed about. Things that I think of while driving alone with the windows rolled down, watching a new chick flick movie, or quietly observing other couples at restaurants. It is a messy list, one that I will keep adding to. I know that there is no such thing as a perfect guy, as there is no such thing as the perfect women. But I do know there is someone God made perfect for me out there…somewhere. So in the meantime, I will continue adding to this wish list until we finally meet. ❤

  1. Someone who will bring me my favorite flowers on random days.
  2. Knows that when I want to be alone, I really don’t want to be alone.

  5. Won’t complain about all the 792348205 pictures that I will take.
