So my unromantic husband?
I feel I may have sold him a bit short on Tuesday.
And since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and all, I’m going to talk him up a bit (and also make him this super easy, light and fluffy raspberry chocolate mousse for two b/c he’s been out of town and has been eating Wendy’s for the past three days).
Oh, and y’all are probably wondering why I have strawberries on raspberry greek yogurt mousse, aren’t you? Well, it’s because the grocery store in this little town apparently doesn’t have raspberries unless they’re frozen, and I didn’t realize I wasn’t going to have them for the photo shoot until right before I set the scene. Plus I’ve also made a chocolate strawberry treat on here before, so I didn’t want to be redundant.
So, yeah, my husband isn’t very romantic, but wanna know what? I’ll take it.
The man has got to be the nicest, sweetest, most tender-hearted man I have ever met. He genuinely and truly cares so much about the people in his life and, unless you ask him for money or ask him to buy something he sees as frivolous, then he would do anything and everything to help you out in any way he could.
He is a great husband, a wonderful uncle to our niece and nephews, a hard worker, and he is a fabulous brother to his siblings. He’s dedicated, determined, trustworthy, honest, sincere, humble, patient, kind, sweet, and lovable.
He takes care of me when my back hurts, he cooks a mean pork and pineapple stir fry, and he always cleans the kitchen up after a big meal. He does the laundry, helps with the daily chores, is responsible with money, and doesn’t get mad if I spend a ton of money on Tarte makeup.
My husband has never hit me, belittled me, or abused me in any way. He gives me kisses and cuddles every day, he loves our kittles as if they are our children (which they totally are for now, BTW), and he treats his mama and grandmother as if they were queens.
I’ll never be able to give my husband everything that I feel he truly deserves; however, I can continue to hit him where it counts by filling his belly with dishes that not only speak to his heart, but also come from the heart as well.
Especially on Valentine’s Day.
When I first said I was going to attempt to make a super easy and healthy chocolate greek yogurt mousse, my original idea was to combine the flavors of chocolate and orange. He can’t stand that combination, and he asked me to make it chocolate and raspberry instead.
Not a problem baby…your wish is my command 😉
