My Man!

I just realized I haven't written a single post about ma' man ... better known to y'all as Hubby.

You won't see many pics of Hubs around, as he's usually the one behind the camera.

But I think he's wonderful, fabulous, handsome, funny, sexy, smart, quirky, frustrating, loving, sweet, crazy, artsy fartsy, original ... the list goes on.

We've known each other for a LONG time (since I was 12 and he was 13). One of our mutual friends invited him to church, and I immediately thought he was a geek. My friends and I picked on him mercilessly for about 2-3 years ... then I noticed something.

He would always laugh at my jokes.

Every. Single. Time.

Now, when you're a tween (whatever that is), most of your jokes are LAME. But he thought I was really funny.

Then I noticed something else ... his eyes. Whoa ... hold up! Where did he get those eyelashes? And his eyes were literally the color of the spring sky. 

Hubby and D-bug ... goodness this is a sweet pic!
Hmmm ... intriguing.

Then, he started growing taller, and taller ... and kept right on going (he's 6' 2"). And then, his hair started getting longer ... I was am a sucker for long hair.

But he was UBER skinny ... like "skinny jeans would be baggy on him" skinny. But my brother told me, "Just wait. He will eventually fill out and he will be good looking. Just watch and see."

And I did.

And he did. *sigh*

In the meantime, we hung out and got to know each other. We would pal around and do stuff with our youth group friends. Then we started being more interested in hanging out with each other alone.

By my junior year in high school (he was a senior), I had a major crush on him. Then, the day before I started my senior year (and the day before he left for college), he asked me to be his girlfriend.

And the rest is history ...

We just celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary on June 1st. And things get better every year.

Honey - Thank you for loving me always (especially when I'm unlovable) and for being a wonderful Daddy to our crazy littles. I love you!!
