Day nine of the 30 photo challenge:
And I'm cheating in that I didn't take this picture today. Rather, it's a photo I took one day after our engagement in March of 2011. We were walking along the river in Ottawa and it was cold but spring was in the air. It's my favorite picture of him because I think it captures the kindness in his eyes, and I think he looks just a little bit happy that I said yes to his question the day before!
Loris is the kind of person that you have to get to know for a while to realize just who he is. I'm glad I took that chance, because he is a treasure I thank God for.
Most of all, I love that he hungers and thirsts for righteousness (Matthew 5:6). He wants to know and love Christ more, and he encourages me to as well. He loves the gospel and truth and is bold in his convictions.
And with a little more then a year and a half of marriage behind us, he's proven himself to be a husband (and now a father too) who is kind, unselfish, and thoughtful.
And it doesn't hurt that he speaks Italian!
