I originally wanted to make this about how I am the coolest wife ever, but I'm going to talk about my husband, instead. Because he's WAY more interesting.

This is my husband, CAPTAIN Fisher.  I gave him this bushido blade as a gift, when he was rather suddenly promoted from lieutenant to captain earlier this month. (That blade is the reason I'm the coolest wife ever!)  I used to call him my "saxy lootellan" (know the reference?), and I was sad about losing that term, until I realized I could now say I had my very own Captain Moroni.  More on that later.

Here is a picture of us on his promotion day.
He accuses me of leaning away from him on purpose when we take pictures, so we always have to have one where I REALLY lean away.

Ah, this is more like it. . .
Every couple needs a good kissing picture.  We're still working on it. See here, he's not really leaning into me, so THERE, Captian! I'm pretty sure this is illegal, though, because he's in uniform and he's technically not supposed to show any sign of affection (I can't even hold his hand!!). Oh well.  We kiss. Get over it, Army!

Now I'm going to acquaint you with some of the many reasons my husband is the coolest husband ever!

My husband LOVES his children.  He never hesitates to play or spend time with them.  I'm so blessed to be married to a man who unabashedly adores our children as much as I do. 

I'm married to a man who is committed to me as a wife and mother.  We can aim to be on the same page, and he defends me.  He also opens my doors.  Unless I'm irritated and beat him to it, but he still goes through the motions, and it usually makes me smile.

I'm grateful for a man who's willing to talk.  And we talk about EVERYTHING!   My husband has a gift for counselling, and trust me, he uses that gift frequently with me.

I'm grateful to be married to a man who is honorable, clean, and virtuous.  He sets the best example for our son, and I will be extremely happy if our daughters catch husbands like him.

I'm so blessed to enjoy spending time with the Captain.  We love talking, watching movies, playing board or video games, and especially reading together. 

Did you know that he's a MATH NERD, too?  I totally DIG math skills!

Importantly, my man works.  He works at a job that he likes but doesn't always love, and he does it so we can have a sufficient living.  I'm especially grateful to stay home with my kids.
The one thing I haven't mentioned is how very handsome my Captain is.  The first time I saw him without facial hair, I nearly fainted.  Eight years later, he's as handsome as ever-- well, more so because he's a MAN now.  My favorite of his features?  His smile wrinkles, his manly jawline, and his sexy, manly hands.  And, he smells good. 

Add to all this his faithful spirit. He truly is a man who can answer all my righteous desires.  These verses of Captain Moroni describe my husband perfectly:
11And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man; he was a man of a perfect understanding; yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed; a man whose soul did joy in the liberty and the freedom of his country, and his brethren from bondage and slavery;
12Yea, a man whose heart did swell with thanksgiving to his God, for the many privileges and blessings which he bestowed upon his people; a man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people.
13Yea, and he was a man who was firm in the faith of Christ, and he had sworn with an oath to defend his people, his rights, and his country, and his religion, even to the loss of his blood.
I am so grateful for a man who is willing to serve not only his family, but our friends, too. He is a man focused on keeping his covenants with honor and perfection.  He is a true and devout follower of Christ, my very own Captain Moroni.
