Hello blog world, this is Matt, the other half of the Matthew and Rachel blog. Rachel's 21st birthday is coming up on the 9th so I thought a little list of 10 reasons why I love her would be fun to make. These are not in any specific order. Just 10 random reasons why I love my girl. Happy Birthday MaMa!
1. Entrepreneurship skills
It was always a dream of mine to start my own business. Who would have thought that Rachel would have before me? Her photography business is blowing up and I’m so proud of her for all the time and effort she puts into it. She has shown me what it really takes to be an entrepreneur.
2. Cooking skills
I would have never thought how important cooking was when I was single. There’s just something about a home cooked meal that hits the spot and Rachel is the bomb diggity at cooking. I am grateful for every meal she cooks because frankly I’m not good at it. Cook on babesters!
3. Social skills
Whenever we go anywhere, be it school, a Chuckers game, my parent’s home ward, Rachel will know someone there. I’ve always had a kind of keep to myself personality when it comes to meeting new people but Rachel is great and starting conversations with anyone and everyone. I think that’s one of the reasons why her photography business is doing so well.
4. Positive Attitude skills
The attribute that trumps all others. Having a positive attitude makes so many other things possible in life. Rachel is the owner of a very positive attitude. I’ve noticed that a lot of times things just seem to go right for her. I think the main reason why is this very skill.
5. Motherly skills
Even though we don’t have any babies yet, we have a pup named Murphie. It’s been pretty interesting to see how both of us react to different situations that Murphie puts us in (i.e. peeing on our clothes, always crying at the door when she was just let out, etc.) Rachel has handled almost all of them with a lot of patience and kindness. (Yes I said almost :) ). She will make a superb mother some day.
6. Sympathy skills
The few times that I’ve gotten sick or something has happened to me, Rachel has nursed me back to full strength. I almost feel bad at how much she waits on me when I’m feeling gross. My sympathy skills are definitely sub-par but I am trying to learn from her on how to care for others.
7. Freestyle rapping skills
Say what? Say what?? Believe it. You give her a beat and she will throw it down. Will it rhyme? Eh, at times it will. Will you laugh? MmmHmmm. Nikki Minaj ain’t got nothin on my girl :)
8. Style skills
When I was looking in my closet the other day I noticed something: Rachel has bought me every single shirt I own in there. She is a lover of clothes but only of the coolest clothes. And I am a lover of her because she is the coolest.
9. Humor skills
Rachel makes me laugh more than anyone on the planet. Some of it is from the silly faces she makes, some of it is from the things she takes almost too far, some of it are just good ol funny jokes. Either way she makes sure there is never a dull moment in the Taylor apartment.
10. Texting skills
Every morning when Rachel wakes up (around 11 or 12) she will always text me. She’s been doing this for a long time and I’ve enjoyed every single one of them. Nothing helps me with my morning/afternoon more than a simple “good morning babe” text. It is sweet and something I’ve come to depend on.
In the comments section feel free to put any reasons why you guys love Rachel and be sure to wish her a happy birthday! This is a big one!
