This guy

Yep, this is going to be one of those annoying “I love my husband THIIIIIS much!” posts. If that’s not your thing, feel free to skip!  But really, this guy deserves some accolades. The years of our marriage have been hard. Not so much the marriage part–that bit has actually been pretty easy–but rather the experiences we’ve walked through together as a couple working toward our future dreams. The years, years of graduate school and chiropractic school, full of late nights of studying, schedules that didn’t line up, working part-time jobs to make ends meet, waiting on things like houses and babies and travel in order to achieve our goals. Then moving across the country, leaving family and friends, to start a new business, and the process of building a business–guys, can I say it again, it’s not for the faint of heart. And walking through the losses we’ve experienced over the past few years–they have been absolutely crushing but somehow we keep reaching for the joy we know this world holds.

But this guy, through it all, has been steadfast and supportive and hardworking.  He is a pretty amazing catch. Wanna know why?

-This guy helps clean and does all the dishes. We share responsibilities in a way that many husbands don’t (or won’t). It is so appreciated. Sorry ladies, he’s taken.

-This guy heals people through his hands–migraines and herniated discs and back spasms and pain in all shapes and sizes and digestive problems and sleep problems and many other complaints have vanished through his thorough and effective care. He is truly living his dream and is rocking at it. It’s been so neat to watch him do his thing and hear the amazing stories that come out of it. Really. Read the stories on our website if you want a sampling.

-This guy is funny. Witty in a way I will never be and his patients love him for it. He makes me laugh every day.

-This guy is slow to anger, quick to forgive, and never loses his temper. I mean never. And from someone who overreacts about little things (yes, I admit it), that is a big deal. So I guess every fight we’ve had has been my fault? Things are getting real here.

-This guy can cook. He is the meat and grilling expert, but he can also bake breads and desserts, and he is much better at improvising a recipe than I am.

-This guy is GREAT with kids! I think it’s because he’s a kid at heart, but he has such a natural ability to connect with kids. He’s going to be a rockstar father.

-This guy is one with nature. He knows his flora and fauna for sure, and always impresses me with his identification of flowers, fish, bugs, etc. Plus he has style on a mountain bike.

-This guy has faith through hard times and humility in good times. He’s always optimistic, always hopeful, always looking for the good in others.

-This guy is my best friend. And that means the world to me.
