You Asked Why I Love You

You asked me the other day why do you love me and I said I don't know. But the truth is, I love you for so many reasons I'm just overwhelmed to pinpoint one specific reason. So for Valentine's Day this year in 2013, I wrote a list for you of some of the reasons why I love you.
