I Love … My Husband

February 3, 2012
On February 1st my littlest started dancing around and shouting “I LOVE February!? I agree. It’s a great month. And I think I’ll share with you some of the things I love.

I Love …

MY HUSBAND

He’s truly almost perfect. 
He’s thoughtful and sweet. Intelligent. Hard working. He makes funny faces as soon as a camera comes out.
In the 25 years I’ve known him he’s never said a negative thing about my appearance. Yet he puts up with our teasing and gamely let my brother-in-law take him on a make-over shopping trip.
Yet, every once in a great while he gives a little sigh and says, “I miss your long hair.” (it’s been gone for 18 years.)
So. With the little one’s in school I have a little more time and as a gift to him I’m growing my hair out. One year to grow it out, one year to let him enjoy it. 

Because I love him.

But I’ll tell you here…


When he’s not around I go a little crazy. It’s in my eyes and tickles my face at night.


I get out the clippers to give my son a buzz and think longingly of just running it up the back of my head. I find myself with scissors in hand too often – tempted.



Then I make an appointment and go back to my hair guy and say – just make it not look stupid while it’s growing out. He does a good job.

    Good for you! For many of us guys, long hair is extremely sensuous, and it means a LOT to us when the one we love has it. Don’t try to figure this out; it’s simply true. LOL

    I love the longer hair, but understand the time thing! It looks good on you. When it gets long enough, ponytail!

    I let my hair grow out a few years ago and I keep it long for my husband – for now, anyway. He loves it even though I think it is too thin and stringy to be just past my shoulders. He often comments on how pretty it is and how pretty I am. I'm ordinary to everyone but him – long it stays. It is my gift to him – a wonderful man who puts up with a lot from me.

    Thank goodness my husband says he is happy with my hair whatever length (or colour) it is as long as I'm happy. I too have a wonderful husband, couldn't ask for better. He is also very supportive of my work in patchwork, quilting, art and mixed media. Personally I think Lyric's hair looked absolutely great short!

    I wonder why hair length is so important to a man? My husband also misses my long hair which I had when I was young and impractical. Now I like being able to go outside and not have it blow in my face and not have to put it into a ponytail so it doesn't fall in the paint/glue/etc. I'm working on! However, I am currently growing it out as he requested and will see how long I can take it. For him. Do you think he should know how much it annoys me, or should I just let him enjoy it? The answer to that is still percolating…

    Ah, the things we do for love. I grew mine out also for my love, and since I really disliked that process, long it has stayed. I figure I'll be one of those 80 year old women with a braid of silver down her back. Wishing you and yours a beautiful weekend.
