Another inspiration from Hallie over at Betty Beguiles!
We met at a karate school while I was in graduate school. I outranked him but he looked awfully fetching in his starched shirts and suspenders that he wore to the office. (He would come to the karate school right from work.)
I am an incredibly light sleeper. He is a snorer. As a sacrifice to his wife, he sleeps in the guest bedroom. Actually, it’s win-win all around. He doesn’t wake me with his snoring and I am not waking him with jabs to the side.
This man makes a cheesecake TO. DIE. FOR. And my thighs can prove it.
We are self-professed BBC fans: Doctor Who. Torchwood. MI-5. Top Gear. Chelsea Football. BBC News.
We purposely picked September as the month to get married because we wanted “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire to be our Wedding Song.
But then we eloped while we were in Key West on vacation… and told our Priest before telling our parents.
Every Saturday morning he bakes cinnamon rolls (from scratch) and we eat them while listening to NPR and every Saturday night he paints the girls’ nails.
He practically hunted down the lactation consultant in the hospital when I was having latch problems after The Bear was born and was my biggest cheerleader though one of my toughest moments as a new mother.
I cook some pretty “unconventional” foods for this meat-and-potatoes guy (black bean patties, quinoa, falafel, ratatouille, etc.) Never have I heard him complain, although I am pretty sure he orders steak when out on client dinners!
I really did marry my best friend. After all, only your best friend would know that an iPhone would be the best birthday gift ever. ;)
