Besties* Forever

So life is crazy and although I started writing this on Thanksgiving, I didn't get around to finishing it until today... further proof we have a 2 1/2 year old and a 6 week old. Argh.

A Week of Thanks- Part IV
My Husband

aka. my BFF, Kevin, Honey, Daddy, etc.

Kevin, hanging out in the tent he and Madeline pitched in the back yard two weeks ago on a random Thursday.

Kevin and I met in 1994 and started dating in 1996. We have known each other for over half of our lives. (Pretty cool since we're only 30) I can't say I always knew we would be together, but when I wasn't with him my life didn't feel right.

He is my almost perfect compliment. When I am crazy (in a good way) and he is reasonable. He can manage finances without getting an ulcer and I get antsy just thinking about money. I make decisions, act on them and think about it later. He weights all his options, plans and projects, then acts. I think in the now, he thinks about the future. He made me like the holidays... which was no small feet mind you and it took many years.

He is the Yin to my Yang.

The Lucy to my Ethel.

The A-1 to my steak.

The Hawaiian Punch to my graham cracker. (Don't knock it till you've tried it.)

This Thanksgiving I am most thankful for him. This last year has been stressful (buying a house, selling a house, finding out we were pregnant the day we got the house, moving, settling in, changing jobs, dealing with my pregnancy (16 weeks of nausea, many more of heartburn and hip pain), having Lydia, bringing her home and figuring out how to be a family of four, plus all the normal life stress). Kevin has been there through all of it thinking of what is best for us as a family. Without him many of the other things I am thankful for would not be possible. I can never thank him enough for working so hard to provide us with the life we have. He works so that Madeline and Lydia can have me at home with them and so that we can live the life we live. Our life may not be perfect, but I am so happy that it is our life together.

I am thankful for my husband more than any blog post can convey.


*Kevin hates it when I use that word. Only seemed fitting here however!
