Three years ago tomorrow we drove into Nashville. This is the first place husband took me – our soon to be house.
I have to admit, I was not impressed. In fact, I was filled with all sorts of feelings – most of them not great. But Husband assured me it was in a great location and we could do great things with our foreclosure.
Yeah. I had my doubts. Lots and lots and lots of doubts. But I had faith in Husband and his ability to make dreams into reality. It’s one of the reasons I fell for him; his ability to make his dreams happen.
Today is his birthday and, as I sit in our nice remodeled den with the pretty clean lines and bright walls that in no way resemble the drafty, bug infested, dark paneled mess that I saw three years ago tomorrow, I want to take a moment and thank him. For holding my hand in the dark times and pushing me forward into the light. For making me laugh in the middle of the worst day. For making the most mundane of tasks silly and entertaining.
He is a constant surprise – most of them good and none of them boring. I mean, this is a guy, a guy born and raised in Scotland, who pulled wildebeest out of his brain when I asked him what animal I resembled. It’s a wacky carnival, the inside of his brain.
Happy day of birth to a guy who makes my life exciting and often a little terrifying. Excited to see what you do next!
