Here we are at December 16th. Today’s favourite thing is not something you can shop for. Today’s favourite thing is my husband, Steve Weckstrom! It is his 40th birthday so I am going to make a list of the 40 things that make Steve my ultimate favourite thing.
#1. His blue eyes
#2. His laugh. The harder Steve laughs the more it turns into this crazy snicker that gets everyone else laughing!
#3. The way animals big and small are drawn to him. The neighbour’s dog or a lion at the zoo, they all want to come and hang out with Steve.
#4. His love of shoes and sense of style.
#5. The way he loves my family.
#6. The way he pretends he is asleep, until he “lets one rip” and starts laughing.
