I knew Marlon was the one from the very first moment I met him. Maybe it was his smile or sense of humor, but I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. Twenty-one years later, he is still my best friend. Marlon is the first person I want to talk to when something exciting happens or if I am upset. He's always there to listen, make me laugh or say the right thing.
My favorite thing about Marlon is his creative spirit. He approaches life with an artistic eye. His talent for illustration is impressive. He loves to draw comics and just about anything. I love that he can express himself through art. Marlon recently completed illustrations for a children's book and is now working on a graphic novel.
Marlon's sense of adventure makes our life so much more interesting. He is always up for trying something new, whether it's snowmobiling, going to the opera, or trying the local cuisine when we travel. His philosophy is "try it, you might like it".
If something is broken, Marlon can always fix it. If I need something built, he can make it. It's great having a husband who is so handy.
Marlon is sentimental at heart. He picks up little mementos when we travel, like a rock from the beach or saves our fortunes from fortune cookies. He keeps a few treasured items from his family like the mug his grandma used to give him cereal in.
I love to hear Marlon talk about our future child and I know he is looking forward to having a family. If we are lounging in bed on a Saturday morning, he'll say “I can see three of us here”. He believes it's important to support our child's interests and help them flourish and grow. I know he is going to be an amazing dad.
