Welcome to the Gun Show
This is my husband in case you are just tuning in. Not some random man I'm taking pictures of in the middle of an electrical field apparently.
We were at the pumpkin patch.
His name is Nick.
He likes to do funny things when I try to take his picture.
And now we're caught up.
My husband has been working tirelessly every.single.day. for the past three weeks. He puts in at least 12 hours, usually more. Then drives his 45 minute drive back home. He doesn't complain. He doesn't get mad. He's perfect.
But there's me back home complaining becuase he's gone. Because it's every day. I know it's not his fault. I know that he would rather be home with us.
I love him so much and he is such a great guy. Thursday when I came down with what was obviously the plague, he just put me in bed. He took care of everything.
This weekend at the market we were checking out and I spied Macaroons in the cart. "I didn't know you liked macaroons!" I exclaimed.
"I don't. But you do." He said. Swoon :)
My husband has never been a romantic man. Sometimes that bothers me more than other times. It's something I work on. It's something he works on. Once he gave me a watch, a beautiful expensive watch. We were broke. He forgot wrapping paper and proceeded to dump out a box of tampons and give it to me in the tampon box...unwrapped. This is a true story folks, you can't make crap like this up.
Anyway, back to now...he doesn't plan these elaborate things but he's always there to tuck me in bed, take my earrings out when I'm too sleepy, he comes home with a bottle of wine, he sticks macaroons in the cart.
I love him so much and I am so thankful for him. And I'm thankful that I'm the only one who gets to go to his gun show :)
