My favorite part of my husband...

No not that...dirty blogging minds...

When I first met my husband somewhere in 1995, I noticed his eyes first, but as the years pass, I'm drawn to his hands more and more. To me they are attractive, sexy and have become more defined the longer we have been together. All the little scars, his wide knuckles and oddly soft patches of skin are just a few things that I notice...


They are the firm hands that hold me when I need to be held and the gentle hands that care for our son. I believe that the hands of a man are a sign of strength and I have loved watching his grow stronger.

I love how he holds his favorite pen and while he's cooking he swings his hands in a circular motion while he tastes his creations. Almost as if his hand gestures will intensify the taste . The movement of his hands during a conversation occur more than he realizes, but when he's passionate about his words, his hands lift up and move frequently and precisely to further punctuate his point.

He's the only person that could beat me in thumb wrestling and our silly slap and tap game that we play out of boredom( hold out your hands on someone else's and they have to tap your hands while you lift them). Although we don't hold hands often and quite frankly I have to force the issue, these are the hands I hope to hold as we grew older and stronger together. My favorite hands to have and to hold...My husband's.



I love a hand that meets mine own .With grasp that causes some sensation.

I wish! Nope that wasn't the reason...

I was trying to think of another one of my favorite things and I was noticing his hands the other night...

I do love my husband very much, that's why I've let him hang around for so long...

Always let them know what it is that attracts you, hands, eyes, hold, lips whatever!! It at sometimes can be a choice to be in love and other times just a know!

That is so wonderful! As you age with your spouse you should contiue to fall in love over and over with him. I think it's great you noticed his hands, you'll see something else when you least expect it and you get that feeling all over again. That's what keeps it alive!
