Ok kiddos--I'm going to get all sappy on you today. Granted I'm suppose to be blogging about utensils, kitchen appliances, etc that make my life easier, that I am thankful for, or that I love, but given that this week is my first *big* party for the release of my book, I have to take a moment and tell you that I am truly thankful for my husband this week (and every week).
Now, to know us, is to know that we don't like clutter. Our house is for the most part tidy (although I tend to not let go of things....so we have a lot of things, but always tidy).
So, let me paint you a picture....I was gone for over a week to California, when I returned I had a little less than 2 weeks to plan and decorate for my release party (which is at the house)....and now that we have two kids, my "office" is of no more. Currently as I sit in my living room, I have a 6 ft white table where my couch use to be, my couch is now in the middle of the room, my son's swing is in the middle of the room, boxes are everywhere, my *decorations* are scattered throughout, the kids play room (which is technically suppose to be a dining room) is now in my son's nursery, the kitchen table is covered in serving platters, bottled drinks, can's of food, candles and duct tap and I am only half way through decorating the entry way.
Needless to say......................................my husband has been a VERY patient man with me :) and I am so grateful for him.
He comes home from a long day of work with a smile on his face, even in the midst of our chaos. Runs around the house with our daughter, while holding our son in his arms, all the while giving me that "much needed break" he says I need...even though he is the one that is also going non-stop throughout his day too.
I love him with all my heart and know for a fact that I wouldn't be able to do this without him. God has blessed me with a man who knows exactly who I am and loves me anyways.
Thank You Jeffrey...
