This Man


Today I have some really good news to share! My Sweet Man got a promotion at work! He is such a hard working, dedicated, smart guy. I am proud of him and proud to be his wife every single day but today I am so happy for him that all his work was formally acknowledged. It feels like a fresh start after the challenges of last year and we are feeling especially grateful for that right now.


This man is the kind of man I hope my girls will one day marry. He is thoughtful, generous, smart, funny, nerdy, talented and handsome. In the last 13 years he has always put his girls first. He is always here for us and I know that he always will be. I don't mean that in a taking for granted way but in a I know how dedicated he is to his family way. He is the kind of guy who leaves a sweet note next to a Mimosa while his wife is in the shower because he knows the day ahead promises to be a hard one.

He is the kind of man that lets his girls stay warm and dry in the store while he goes out to get the car. He is the kind of man who never complains if you ask him to stop on the way home from work to pick something up from the store. He is the kind of man that truly appreciates all his wife does for him and the family. He is the kind of man that goes out and buys his wife special new earrings to thank her for her part in his promotion. This man. I'm so glad he's mine.

  5. What a guy! I love that picture from Paris too! It's so nice to hear a wife sing the praises of her husband and a great example for the girls=)

    I chuckled because I think I know exactly when that little note on the mirror was written ; )

  6. congrats to your sweet man and to you! it looks like the both of you quietly set some goals and have both achieved them, with more to come. you two make a great team!

    p.s. would love to write an essay about how wonderful my husband is to both our girls and to me, but, i'll keep it short and cite tonight when he grabbed the last two girl scout thin mints from the freezer and managed to stop before he crammed them in his mouth and offer them to me as an example of true love... :)!

  8. What I appreciate about this post is that it made me think. You are doing what we all should do - show how thankful we are for our loved ones. I'm so guilty of taking my husband for granted, and he's so giving, caring, and supportive. Thanks for reminding me, and congratulations on the promotion!

  9. I would say....he is the lucky one! What a sweet wife you are to sing his praises, although I know he must deserve it! A good man is hard to find. (I found one many years ago). Truly refreshing to see a loving couple and a loving family. Congratulations on his promotion! xx
