FC: 100 Reasons Why I Love You
1: To my Toad, I can't believe it has only been one year! I love you for so many reasons, but here are the first 100 that came to my mind. Hope you enjoy! Love always, Sam
2: 1, You make me feel safe. When I am with you I know that I will be kept from any harm. | 2, You are aware of all of my craziness and you still stand to be around me.
3: 3. One kiss from you makes all of my worries disappear.
4: 4, You take the time and effort to cook for me, and it actually tastes good...most of the time. (Just kidding, its always yummy) | 5. You make camouflage look cute. I didn't think it was possible, but you made it happen. Especially in your camo apron ;)
5: 6. No one can keep me as sane as you can. You have a calming presence, something I need. In the most hectic times I can always turn to you.
6: 7. You make me feel like a little kid. I love that we can watch Disney movies together and not only do you enjoy it, but you sing along to the songs with me. And you waste time by drawing Disney characters in class, just like in elementary school. I love it!
7: 8. Not only do you respect my morals and values, but you share them. I know that I can always freely express my opinions to you and not have to worry about being judged. You respect me and that means more to me than you can imagine.
9: 9. Every time we get in the car you put on the songs from Country Strong because you know how much I love them. And sometimes you even sing them! | 10. You plan fun adventures to the mountains. I never knew how much fun it could be to take hikes and be away from the rest of the world for a few hours. Turns out there are fun activities to do outside of a mall! | 11. You have introduced me to so many awesome new things. Shooting guns, parties at the lake, and Brunswick stew, just to name a few. (The stew is all your mom's doing, but I will give you partial credit)
10: 12. You are always willing to help me or anyone else. No matter what. | 13. You can handle 7 girlfriends at one time. That is just impressive. | 16. You always find the nerdiest and corniest jokes to tell me. And since I am a major nerd, I love that! | 14. Oreos are staple food in both of our diets, which is very convenient. | 15. You are always open to trying new things at least once. Except sushi. I am still working on that.
11: 17. You complement me so perfectly. Where I am weak, you are strong. | 18. You have the cutest smile, especially when you are really happy because then I get to see your dimples. I love your dimples.
12: 19. You always make me feel pretty. Even if I am all sweaty and gross, you tell me I am beautiful. 20. I know that I can trust you with my life. And my heart. | 21. You enjoy Japanese food, Gino's and Hops as much as I do. Choosing where to eat is never an argument. 22. We are both stubborn enough to argue about the proper way to count. (P.s. I am still right!) 23. You are always kind. Everyone who meets you instantly knows that you are truly a good-hearted person.
13: 24. You genuinely take an interest in what I enjoy doing. You will do crafts with me and convincingly pretend to have fun doing them too.
14: 25. When I am sick, which is very often, you do everything you can to make me feel better. You bring me soup and medicine. | 26. You will hold my hand. Anytime. Anywhere. 27. You enjoy Fall as much as I do. It really is the best season!
15: 28. You let me cry, even if you don't understand why. | 29. You always text me when you get home from dropping me off so I don't worry | 30. You are who you are and you don't change it for anyone. | 31. Even though you HATE feet you still massage mine. | 32. You are ambitious and that is so attractive. | 33. You appreciate the small things in life like how pretty the trees look when the leaves change.
16: 34. I can come wake you up at 3 a.m.when I am not feeling well and you will just comfort me. I can count on you, always. | 35. You bought me sparkle heels as a surprise. I mean, seriously, what girl wouldn't love that?? | 36. You love me despite my constant panic attacks and illnesses. I am probably a health hazard to you. | 37. I can wear my six inch heels and still be shorter than you.
17: 38. We can watch Arthur over and over again and it never gets old. Especially when drinking Maker's Mark and eating generic brand Saucy O's. | 39. You introduced me to my favorite city in the mountains. Blowing Rock was the best first real date ever. | 40. We can lay around for hours talking about everything under the sun. | 41. You became a Minnesota Vikings fan (probably at the worst time because they are so awful this year). | 42. You listen to me sing Glee songs in the car. I'm sure that is painful to listen to, I am certainly no Lea Michele. | 43. You have the Southern Gentleman charm.
18: 44. You are so close to your family and I love that. There is nothing more important than family and it is evident that you feel the same. | 45. You randomly send me flowers. It makes me feel special because its never on any type of holiday.

You completely ignore the fact that my mom and I practically have my entire wedding planned out. You let me have my little fantasy without getting freaked out by it. | 60.

I may not have that skill mastered yet but you have made great progress with me. 73. You make super yummy peach cobbler and I am pretty sure there are several people who love you for that. 74. You kind of enjoy shopping. Not near as much as I do, but if we stop by Bass Pro Shop that will satisfy you for the rest of the day.
