But underneath all of that, he's still just a hick!
A southern boy who grew up in Missouri workin' on farms and partyin' in fields! A boy that grew up drinkin' iced tea, buckin' bails of hay, and saying "yes mam" and "no sir." - for the most part, he's a real southern gentleman!
He is always so calm and kind hearted. And this morning just proved again why I am the lucky one that got to marry HIM.
Yesterday while I was at work eating my lunch, my boss... which happens to be my grandpa, asked if I wasted my money buying that turkey wrap I was eating?! I said, no. "I didn't buy this... Loren made it for me this morning when he packed my lunch!" To which Gramps replied, "Oh la la, I didn't know Loren could make such fancy wraps. And he even packs your lunch?"
Well this morning when I got out of the shower my sweet little southern boy had packed my lunch again and made me another turkey wrap. But this time there wasn't just one wrap in my lunch bag, there were two. Loren had packed one for me and one for grandpa.
Just one of the many little things my Loren does that makes him so well liked and just plain ole' wonderful!
Not to mention he is an insanely hard worker and is up for just about any project I ask him to tackle.
He is all about the "6 second kiss" our pastor talked about one Sunday back. And he never leaves the house without given me a smooch!
He talks me down when I am worked up and he lets me know that he is proud of me and that I am loved.
And then he does things like tidy up the house last night and whips out 2 loads of laundry while I am at work.... all so I don't have to.
