Ten Things I Love About You



~~Dear, Mr. Liverpool,


1.    I love
that you see me.


You know,  without
makeup.  Hideous and Stinky.  Hair piled unwashed and uncombed.   Me.  The unpainted version of me. The real me.  The muted me….. & still,  you love.


2.    I love your British accent wrapping around
me like the 4 Beatles.


3.     I love that you pretend to get pleasure from
burnt bacon on Saturday mornings.


4.     I love that when I burst into tears
mid-sentence because of Kay’s murder, you gaze at me with tender, knowing, sugary


5.      I love that you read every. single. blog.
I write.


And even though you discipline me sometimes for my sweltering,
spontaneous, straightforward tone, you never judge  me.  Never.


6.      I love that you support my “Writing”


7.      I love that you’ve attended each one of
my poetry readings, poetry recitals, & domestic violence causes.   Always, without question.  I see you sitting there smiling.


8.      I love that you never leave the table
without saying “thank you” for your meal…even when it’s overcooked,
undercooked, & shockingly, charcoaly  appalling.


Is that a British trait, mate?


9.      I love that after all of these years, even when I’ve asked, you’ve
never told me my ass was big.


You are an exceptionally intelligent man.


10.     I love that you love me.


In spite of everything,
In spite of everything.

—–Dear, pink lips Reader,  what are some things you “love” about your lovaaah?

-The first song we danced to in Mexico.   Remember, dear?    You couldn’t keep your hands off of me :)



Kim's Blogs


  1. Wow! What a beautiful Valentine you have written to your true love. Won’t he be thrilled when he reads this post!!!! I’m so glad you have him and realize the treasure you have.

  2. Kim Pugliano says:

    Oh Kim that made me cry. Please print this and frame this. So beautiful. I too love that my Hot Joe loves me sweaty, no make-up, stinky, just worked out, bad breath. He is my biggest fan and keeps me grounded without holding me back.

    I may have to write my own letter.


  3. Vidya Sury says:

    Lovely. My man’s the same :-) This post is so feel-good for me – and so similar to what I would write – except I’d write “my mom” when I burst out crying ~ and play a hindi song for Sury.

    Used to hear Tainted Love almost everyday back in the 80’s on MTV. 😀

    You’re a sweetheart, Kim. Bless you!

    Hmm…maybe I’ll write a poem for Sury – he always writes one for our anniversary, my birthday and Vidur’s birthday.


    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      AHHHH, Vidya,

      Lets see some more photos of your sweet love. I want to see your list, too. Xx

      Lots of love flowing in your direction.

  4. Impulsive Addict says:

    There is something super sexy about a man with an accent. Your lover sounds downright HOT in my eyes!

    I love how my husband thanks me for cooking even if it’s horrible. We have that in common.

    Great list my friend!! xoxo

  5. Heather says:

    There is nothing sexier than a good man. Nothing. You, my dear, have a really good man.
    I have one too. I love that my man supports in everything, no matter how crazy of an idea I come up with – whether I want to paint a rug, or start a business. He supports me and stand by me.

  6. Monica says:

    Mr. Liverpool sounds absolutely divine, and so perfect for you. I’ve always been fond of Brits and have had for a very long time major crushes on Pierce Brosnan (who’s really Irish, I believe) and Colin Firth. You two sound so right for each other. Hugs! 😉

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      Colin Firth is dreamy. I also love that guy from Crank. Forgot his name…

      But i’ll never find another Brit like Mr. Liverpool.

      XX Kiss for you, Monica.

  7. AWESOME – Mr Liverpool is just AWESOME!!! Kim, give him a big hug from me and tell him that I say thank you for loving you so unconditionally!
    My hubby Pete is the closest thing I know to a saint walking the face of the earth so I fully appreciate and understand what you are saying here.
    Sending you love from sunny South Africa.
    :-) Mandy xo

  8. I love the way Dream Baby vacuums the breakfast table with the floor vac, yet is the best sushi chef ever.
    I love that he is always up for a glass of wine, a nap, or both.
    I love that I can get my way with him no matter what. I love that he taught me to ski.
    But mostly I love how he makes me a better person.

    Great Post!

  9. Lady E says:

    What a lovely post Kim, and here’s a bit of gossip for you :) – can’t write it on my own blog, but here my parents won’t see it!
    It’s still such early days with Mr Nice but I love that
    1- I feel like I am 17 (currently in the throes of withdrawal syndrome because I haven’t touched his skin for 24h)
    2- He is so effing gorgeous I think I might die
    3- He understands why I am so scarred and scared, and is so patient
    4- He has had the courage to work through his personal issues and is a self-aware, stronger man as a result
    5- He can ski, snowboard, surf, windsurf, swim, run, play handball like a god
    6- He loves his son above anything else and respects his ex
    7- He makes me feel beautiful
    8- He is both vulnerable and strong
    9- He smells good
    10- I feel protected in his arms

    Right, anyone need a sick bag 😉 ?

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      Lady E,
      I am sooo excited for you.
      Mr. Nice sound deliciously nice. Is he French?

      What really turns me on is a “GOOD FATHER.”

      Keep me informed w/ all the juicy sexy gossip. Xx

  10. Debbie says:

    You made me think and concentrate on my hubby’s good qualities and it would be that he always, always compliments and tells me how nice I look. Always reminds me too when I cook what a good cook I am even though I think he is stretching it a bit…and he always listens when I have an issue and is never critical of me……

  11. Bella says:

    Kim, darlin’, we should all, and I mean, every single one of us, have someone as scrumptuous as Mr. Liverpool in our lives! I’m so delighted you have blessed to have a real man by your side. And I say real, because it takes a real man to love us unconditionally; without reserve, just because. That said, I know Mr. Liverpool must feel himself to be equally lucky to have a woman like you by his side. After all, it’s not every day that you get to wed a woman who is kind, considerate, compassionate, generous and kick ass! And that’s who you are, lady! All of that and more! So methinks you’re both blessed to have found each other! To answer your question, what I love most about the Significant Other is how he finds me beautiful even when I’m having a bad hair day and look like the Lion King. How when I tell him I need to lose weight he says, “Not too much cause then there’s no cushin’ for the pushin'” and how when we hug, his hands are always placed underneath my waist. :)

  12. Loved this post Kim! Number 5 made me utterly jealous (I earn my living principally as a writer – it must feel so special to know that there’s someone witnessing you each and every time – I find that so romantic…). Number 8 made me melt – love that Mr. Liverpool – and, the footnote to number 9 made me burst out laughing! Intelligent indeed :).

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      was he your soulmate?
      Does one ever find love like that again? I mean, who can compare?

      Think of you so often. X

  13. Red Dwyer says:

    I love this. I would be hard pressed to cut mine to ten. You are blessed. He sounds like the kind you would want to leave little love notes for where he will find them hours later and wonder when you got to sneak them where he found them.


  14. Wow. *sigh*. That was breathtaking. He reads ALL your blogs? And comes to ALL your gigs? That man LOVES you;). So lovely to hear.
    My guy, my hubby, makes me laugh when I think I need to be very stern. He sees the me I want to be even when I act a fool. He reminds me that I am not my past and rejoices in who I am today. He praises me for the woman, mother and wife I have become. I’m going to go squeeze him right now.

  15. Catwoman says:

    Such a nice, sweet and honest post! I couldn’t write so beautiful things like you did. I love my man, I really do love him, because he is the MAN for me. He protects me, he is always kind, and he’s the best father as well.

  16. Maggie Mckenzie says:

    How amazing is it that there are still men around like this! I found mine 2 times! I love that he loves my daughter Brooklynne Paige like his own! I love that he kisses her and hugs her and always makes time for her. I love that even though I picked an asshole for her sperm donor, she still has a daddy in Nick! I Love that she will always have someone who loves her as much as I do in case something happens to me (just in case) What a gift RIght? I love that he loved me even though I broke his heart after dating for 4 years in highschool and he let me live as a single 20 year old and find ME and still loved me UNCONDITIONALLY for 6 years after that!! ( AS A BESTFRIEND ) Soon I will be his WIFE! I love that he just loves ME.
    Kim I love you for making me grateful. Sometimes I forget! Thank you for your gift to me!!

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      Maggie, So happy you are finally with a nice guy!

      When Can I meet you?

      You Are such a sweet girl & I love when you come visit me. :)) Xxx

  17. Brenda says:

    What a wonderful tribute. And yes, a smart man re: the size of your bum. I do love a love story (no secret there) and love even more that you share your heart’s passions and feelings with us here on your blog. You are blessed, my sweet woman. Having a partner that shares your passions (even if they are not his) is, to me, amazing and worth walking over hot coals for. Enjoy your man and all his wonderfulness.

  18. Adriana Iris says:

    i love my hubby’s unassuming ways when in fact he could be cocky…
    i love his support through all changes and variations of myself i’ve gone through…
    i love how he loves his daughters…
    gosh so much more which would soon be a post 😉

  19. Kimmy says:

    You & Dave are so romantic!! To me the little things in life are romantic
    Like for instance my Lee is romantic in the things he
    says & does that mean the most to me.
    1. He tells me he loves me every day
    2. He always says something positive about me,
    or gives me compliments about how I look even
    if I know I look like or feel like crap.
    3. He is a great dad & 4. a great son to his parents.
    5. He has a great sense of humor
    6. Even though he doesn’t like old black & white
    movies which are my favorite he will watch them
    with me. I do the same for him of course! Same
    goes for music.
    7. One of my favorite things is when he holds my hand
    Whether we’re just watching TV, walking or even
    8. He respects me for who I am & believe me I do
    drive him crazy with my moods.
    9. He is gentle & 10. kind

  20. Hilary says:

    Mr. Liverpool sounds amazing… I am so happy for you to have such a great guy in your life…. I am lucky with the burning of the bacon part too – marc loves a lot of burnt food – comes in very handy!

    • Kim Sisto-Robinson says:

      Sending you a kiss from Duluth, Mn.

      We are planning our “””Kay Marie Sisto Memorial””walk again :) X

  21. Ginger says:

    I have one of these, too, a blog about all the reasons I love Sean, my BOYFRIEND. isn’t that adorable? A 52-year-old woman having a BOYFRIEND? Your love note made me remember some I need to add! I love it and I love that you are in love and well-loved and loving. xoxoxoxoxoxo

  22. Kairo says:

    I intended to comment on some of your “loves” individually, but there are so many that touch me, I’d be here typing forever.

  23. LBDDiaries says:

    Okay – I am in love with this post. Absolutely! One. Hundred. Percent. In love with this post. You make me wanna do a mushy on Alpha Hubby, too. Maybe February can be the gag month – ho!
