Fourteen years and counting

Yeap, that's us; my red headed husband and I. A few years ago, I found these pezz dispensers and had to get them. Popeye doesn't have a beard, so I bought Brutus (and, he looks more like my husband). I painted the black hair to red and gave it to my husband as a gift. He got a kick out of it.

As you can see in the picture, my husband's pezz is more worn out. Kids love this and often play with it. He had to fight off super heroes and villian figures.
In real life it is kind of a similar story, he goes to work everyday so I get to be a stay-at-home mom and take care of the kids. He loves us and takes care of us. In that way he is my super hero.

Our fourteenth anniversary is coming up in next week. He is taking me away for a nice get away this weekend! This is actually our first time doing something like this, we always had a bunch of reasons not to go. In fourteen years we had been through a lot, many, many medical problems (mostly mine), loss of jobs etc... but those hardships brought us closer, and made us stronger as a couple. We are NO WHERE NEAR PERFCT, that is why we stay together, help each other, so we can become better people.

I remember lots of great moments and I am looking forward to many more of those in the years to come. He is my best friend, he understands me, and supports me. It may not be easy to be a husband of a girl with many hobbies and is addicted to fabrics; but he does a great job. If there is such a thing as a "best husband award" he will definately get it (sorry ladies, it's true).

I am so excited, I can't wait to get our weekend started! I'll be back on Monday, everyone have a great weekend!
