  • To my husband

  • You look good. I don't tell you often enough, but you look really good.

  • You think you look rough and you think you look tired, but to me, you look like how I want my man to look. You look like a man who gives his all to his family and to the others around him, each and every day, day in and day out. So, when you are feeling slightly less hunky than George Clooney, know that you have a wife who thinks you are more of a stud than any of the Sexiest Man Award winners.

  • Don't believe me? Let me convince you...

  • You look good...

  • Cloaked in kindness -

  • it's your aura and you wear it well.

  • Wearing compassion -

  • it's your look of choice and you exude it with ease.

  • Rocking humor -

  • it's your favorite thing to rock and it looks so natural on you.

  • When you are impassioned -

  • impassioned with our children, with your work, and with your hopes and dreams for our family.

  • Trying on fearlessness -

  • it's so becoming and attractive on you.

  • In motivation -

  • so good that you inspire me to stay motivated as well.

  • Sweaty from hard work-

  • hard work that you take on tirelessly and without complaint.

  • Wrapped in hugs from our children -

  • it's probably my favorite look on you.

  • Dressed in determination -

  • determination for our family to make all of our dreams come true.

  • Donning optimism -

  • which complements me when I am wearing pessimism.

  • So, remember how you thought you looked rough and tired? Well, if this is rough and tired, then go ahead and look rough and tired all the time because you have never looked better.

  • To my wife

  • You look good, too. I don't tell you often enough, but you look really good.

  • You think you look rough and you think you look tired, but to me, you look like how I want my wife to look. You look like a wife who gives her all, and much more, to her family and to the others around her, each and every day, day in and day out. So, when you are feeling slightly less "hot" than Gisele Bündchen, know that you have a husband who thinks that you are more beautiful than any of the Sexiest Woman Award winners.

  • Don't believe me? Let me convince you...

  • You look good...

  • Cloaked in exhaustion -

  • it's your aura and you wear it well and to me, well, it says that your children mean the world to you.

  • Wearing yesterday's clothes -

  • it's not your look of choice, but you rock it with confidence anyway.

  • In your messy bun -

  • you'd like to impress me and others with a new hairstyle, but this is your go-to and I love it.

  • When you are impassioned -

  • impassioned with our children, with your work and with your dreams for our family.

  • Trying on worry -

  • you don't like to wear it but it's natural on you, and the place it comes from is your huge heart.

  • In motivation -

  • motivation to be a good mom, a good wife, a good daughter, a good sister, a good friend, and just a basic good human being.

  • In selflessness -

  • and your choice to wear it typically results in some self-neglect, which you take on without complaint.

  • Wrapped in hugs from our children -

  • it's probably my favorite look on you.

  • Dressed in determination -

  • determination for our family to make all of our dreams come true.

  • Donning optimism -

  • which complements me when I am wearing pessimism.

  • So, remember how you thought you looked rough and tired? Well, if this is rough and tired, then go ahead and look rough and tired all the time because you have never looked better.

  • And, for those days that you are still feeling unassure of yourself, are unconvinced of my love and unwavering attraction for you, just ask me to tell you what I love about you today and I gladly will.
