13 Things I Love About My Hubby

This week I depart for the US for ten weeks. Eight of those weeks will be without my hubby, Alle, and I thought I would do a special T13 dedicated to him and the many reasons I love him. Yeah, I know, it's sickeningly sweet. So sue me.

13 Things I Love About My Hubby!

1) His sincerity. He doesn't say anything he doesn't mean, and I think that's great.

A quick kiss in Siena, May 2005.

2) His sense of humor. He was willing to act in a play my friend wrote and directed for a language school I used to work for. It was a re-telling of the "Cinderella" fairy tale. He played the "Fairy Godmother". In drag. In front of about 70 people. I don't know many hubbies who would do that, do you?

Alle plays "Edith-Ann" in Siena on our honeymoon, March 2004.

3) He's a cyclist. Y'all know me and my affection for cyclists. 'Nuff said. ;)

4) He works hard, and he does it so I can work part-time and stay at home to write.

5) He'll try just about anything. He really wants to experience new things, and he jumps right in.

6) He volunteered at Croce Verde (Green Cross) for a few years, as a "first responder/ paramedic" type. Yeah. Yum.

7) He still has the uniform from that.

8) He's an Italian who also speaks English and French, knows a bit of Portuguese and can read in the Cyrillic alphabet.

9) He enjoys my family when he visits them in the States. He sincerely enjoys them. Sometimes, I think they like him more than they do me! LOL!

10) He looks after his health, even when we go on holiday. I wish I could say the same!

Alle goes for a ride in St. Petersburg, Florida, 2004.

11) He was totally willing to put this outfit on to go 4-wheeling around my family's farm in Kentucky. Not many Italians would do that!

12) He'll do just about anything I ask of him. I mean, he'd have gotten in this barrel for the sake of the picture. He even offered to do just that, in spite of some bits of trash inside. I said no.

13) He's sweet and romantic. Have I mentioned that? No? How silly of me.

14) Originally, I hadn't planned any eye candy for this week, thanks to the subject matter above. However, Alle has insisted that I share a little something with y'all, so as not to disappoint the regulars.

I've settled on one of my "Hotties in Heaven" for this week.

So, scroll down, y'all...

You rock, sista. You made your hubby's day.

Your husband is such a good sport about the photos and you posting them. He does sound like a keeper to me too.

That last photo was Brandon Frazer? I really couldn't tell.

Oh, man, I saw a feed from Emilia-Romagna, a part of Italy I adore!
In fact, I wrote a novel published by Loose Id, inspired by Lucrezia Borgia.
Your sweetie sounds like a doll! And looks adorable, too.
How you can make it through the next weeks?
BTW, as if you'd need any suggestions, but I have a very hot scene in that Italian-set story I call phone sex. ;~D
