Things I've Learned From My Firefighter

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

In the past 8 years that Dan and I have been together, we've learned a lot about each other, about ourselves and definitely from each other. If I'm ever in need of a laugh or an adventure, Dan is always right there by my side ready for anything and everything. There's a reason people say he has his own language and people at the station call him captain obvious. Most of the time when he's funny, he really doesn't mean to be, and he's always saying things that make no sense unless you know him. Here are a few things I've learned from him over the years . . .

It's always more fun if you laugh at yourself. I swear, 99.9% of the time, he is trying to make me laugh, usually without knowing it. Dan is one of the most honest and genuinely good people . . . and is constantly saying something goofy without meaning to!

There's never a bad time for a dance.

Water slides are always a good idea . . .

Selfies: Anytime, Anywhere . . . I swear he invented the selfie

You can do anything you set your mind to! Watching him finish not only one, but two marathons was so inspiring. As if he didn't make me proud enough on a daily basis being a firefighter/paramedic, he has to go and run a marathon. Not only does he make me proud, but he motivates me to get off my butt and go for a run!

Always trust an Eagle Scout . . . I've joked for the last few years that I need one of those "I'm proud of my Eagle Scout" bumper stickers for my car. And I've definitely come pretty close to purchasing one. With certain groups of friends, we can't get through a night before stories of boy scouts come up. And while I joke, it has definitely taught him some neat life skills.

Anyone can be a model . . . or try to be

Bellyflops take practice . . . practice makes perfect!

Firefighter's no longer save cats from trees.

There are still sensitive, caring, and romantic guys out there! As often as he makes me laugh and acts silly, he is sweet and romantic just as often! I truly couldn't ask for a better person to share life with!
