“Everything makes sense in your head until you put it on paper...right?” Good one hubby ☝🏽. Another brainstorming session with my hubby and business partner. I just love the way his mind works. We’ve got this analytical + creative vibe thing going.
It’s official today. We’ve celebrated the same amount of birthdays together as we have apart. Just before our 16th birthdays Anthony slipped me a note announcing his love for me (or something like that 😉), and it’s been one birthday after another together ever since. 15 birthdays ago,I thought I knew the roles we would always play. He was mysterious and silly, personable and daring. But through the last 15 birthdays, I’ve watched this man also become wise and gentle, but rugged and o so handsome. He’s the one I go to with the hard questions, and there isn’t a task he can’t complete for our family. He’s innovative and meticulous, a self-taught man. I used to believe that I was the brains in our relationship, but through the years it’s become clear that any of the things worth knowing are all Anthony. How to change the oil or the break pads, the right pressure in my tires, how to rewire a light fixture, or mortar a crack in the brick. How to lay flooring or paint over wallpaper. How to pack the car to its maximum capacity or fix my shorting headphones. He’s my guy with all the answers, the one who possibly knows our children at times better than I do, and I can’t believe he’s mine. He serves whole-heartedly, and he’s the practical and the planner to my spontaneity. Happy birthday to the man who takes care of us all, works so hard, and even surprised ME with a trip on his birthday. We love you BIG, babe! ♥️ It’s been such a privilege to grow up with you, my guy!
