101 Reasons Why I Love Jim

I wanted to have a surprise ready for Jim when he got back from his trip because he hates being away for so many days in an uncomfortable hotel room, staying with someone who may snore or have volatile gas or something. So inspired by Angie and her recent post for her husband for Father's Day I have decided to also do a "101 Reasons..." list. I thought that I would share with you because I wanted those of you who may not know him very well how wonderful he is, and for those of you who are his family I wanted to share how wonderful he is at this whole husband thing since you can't see it in person here in MN. So here is my list that I will be giving to Jim when he gets back tomorrow. (Oh and I've edited out the really personal ones.)
