Talking Tuesday

TalkingTuesdayShare your thoughts, feelings, and stories as well as respond to others regarding these questions:

What is one of your favorite physical features of your spouse or significant other? Why?

I’ll get us started …

As most of you will feel too (hopefully), there are so many things I love about my husband! I think he is the most handsome man ever, so it’s tough to pick just one favorite physical feature of his. That being said, I would have to say his eyes. He has beautiful blue eyes, but my favorite thing about them is how tender and gentle they are. When I look into his eyes, I just feel at ease and comforted. Like I’ve arrived home. It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, and my husband definitely has a comforting, tender soul that is gentle and kind. Those beautiful blue eyes are definitely one of my favorite physical features of his!

Okay, it’s your turn!

    Oh my this is a tough one. I’ve had a ‘crush’ on my husband since I was about 14 years old, so there are so many things about his physical appearance that I love. I will have to say his eyes. When we make eye contact my mind is at ease and like you said–I feel home. He has the most warm and kind spirit and heart and when I’m locked into those beautiful auburn brown eyes–it’s my safe haven and my home ; )

      Meredith, I love hearing how challenging it is to pick just one thing that you appreciate about Scott’s appearance! That’s a good problem to have 🙂 It’s amazing how our husband’s eyes can say so much and provide so much for us, huh? Thanks for sharing!

    Much like you, Ashley I found it hard to pick just one feature. My wife has the unique traits to be beautiful, cute and sexy all at once (sorry but it’s true lol). If I had to pick just one feature though it would have to be her smile. She is able to put people at ease and give them comfort whole also lighting up a room. Just writing about it makes me think of her and smile.

      Ray, no need to be sorry! That’s what we like to hear 🙂 How sweet it is to hear you talk about your wife’s beautiful smile! Hopefully she is well aware that you love it so much! Thanks for sharing!

    Ashley- I had to think about this one for a second! Both my husband and I have gone through many physical changes during the course of our marriage (13 years this June). Between 3 back-to-back pregnancies, Military life, retired life, moving etc. – let’s just say our bodies have seen better days LOL. However, one thing has never changed on my husband and that is his strong arms. Not only are they good for heavy lifting and making quick work of jobs I cannot tackle, they are warm and gentle, giving me the right amount of snuggle power!

      Shannon, thanks for kicking off this week’s conversation! First of all, congratulations on your upcoming anniversary! I think all of us can relate to changing bodies over the years 🙂 I love that you still appreciate your husbands strength and what a blessing it’s been to you throughout the years! Thanks for sharing!
