Meet the Husband

Today is my husband's birthday..... I know he will be so embarrassed when he sees this, but I can't help but dedicate today's post to him. Besides, he IS the man who I am crazy about. We had a lot of fun this weekend celebrating with Valentine's Day in the mix as well.


(Left - doing Mission Work, Right- during his Rugby days)

The reasons I was drawn to him early on, are still the reasons I love him so much....He is a man of service, he is a leader. We met in college. I loved going to watch him play and coach Rugby. Its amazing how much you can draw from a person's character by how they act on and off the field. From our first days of dating, he would always find ways to serve me..humbling! And of course, he made me laugh more than anyone I knew...and still does!


Left-Our first 10K, Right- going to a Braves game)

We had so many of the same interests, but if he found out about something that meant a lot to me, he would go the extra mile to make it his interest too. Such as, going to Braves games when he is a diehard Brewers fan, going running with me (which is not his favorite way to excercise;)), making an effort to get to know each of my ten brothers and sisters, encouraging me to pursue art and design, etc. etc.

I know God created him for me. Each day I discover more reasons why...

(Our son Gabriel Joseph, at 2 mo. and 6 mo. with his daddy-who makes him laugh all the time)

Nothing melts a woman's heart more than to see her husband and child interact. My husband is an amazing father. He works so hard for both of us, and is so involved in our lives. Little G can't wait for him to walk in the door....daddy = entertainment to him:) We can't seem to wrap our mind around this little person! He is the face of God to us, and I can't get enough of my boys!

So, Happy Birthday to my favorite man in the whole world:)

  1. Anna, this post is beautiful! I LOVE to read, hear, and meet couples and families who share similar priorities. You married a MAN of GOD, a MAN of honor, a MAN of humility, a MAN that you are still completely head of heals in love with. That is awesome! I can guarantee that if you cherish and nurture that on a daily basis.....in 5 years you'll still feel the same. Stronger actually....a love that grows even more.

    It continues to baffle me. Posts like this remind me that I'm not alone...that WE are not alone. Thank you for sharing.

  17. Hi Anna,
    I am loving this post. You are so cute... so are your hubby and son. I think Gabriel looks like you a lot, that's why he's so cute...HaHa :)
    It is so nice to see people so in love. It is such a special gift you can give to your son. Having him grow up around such love an admiration will teach him how to treat others and himself. You ROCK Anna!!Thanks for such a sweet post and getting to know you a little better.

    Have a wonderful day!
    XoXo
