my husband, phil, and i recently celebrated our 11th anniversary. i must say, thanks to some very generous friends of ours who watched our boys overnight and who set us up in a beautiful hotel downtown Denver, we had such a great time together! what a special time to talk and connect and relax and simply enjoy each other’s company. it was priceless.
in the midst of the busyness of the beginning of a new school year and another year of doing SCY together, i’ve been thinking a lot about what a wonderful person my husband is, and how lucky i am to partner with him in this life.
creative. fun. funny. smart. compassionate. thoughtful. selfless. questioning. thinking. musical. easygoing. responsible. caring. persistent. energetic. confident. courageous. inclusive. sacrificial. kind. helpful. loud. considerate. wise. honest. vulnerable. open. deep. brave. passionate. enthusiastic. intentional. focused.
i could go on.
he is a storyteller. a caring father. a devoted husband. a creative being. a thoughtful son and loyal brother. a musician. a thinker. a confidant. one who laughs easily and loudly. one who dresses with style. one who shares thoughts, ideas, food, music, conversations and his coca-cola. one who listens. one who hugs.
he takes care of me. he is thinking of me, even when i don’t know it. he gives me unexpected gifts. he knows me inside and out and loves me anyway. he winks. he puts me first.
my boys and i are lucky… to have such a loving husband and father, always looking out for us, cheering us on and wrapping us up in his strong arms.
he truly is a GIANT among men.
and i’m so grateful that he’s mine!
