Shawn is an upper cervical doctor. That is why we moved to Franklin, so that we could start a practice and a life here. Being married to a doctor certainly has it's perks, I haven't personally gotten to experience any of those just yet, but I know they are coming. ;) At this point in our lives being married to a doctor equates to lots of debt, long hours, and a stressed out husband. Not exactly a glamorous life, but the one that I agreed to and would agree to 1000 times over again.
There are all types of husbands, good, bad, funny, handsome, ugly, mean, sweet, quiet, loud, obnoxious, you pick an adjective and I can find you a husband that fits it! My husband has four main adjectives that describe him in no particular order: devoted, hilarious, anal and beautiful. We have been married for almost 4 years. Some would argue that 4 years is plenty of time to know the ins and outs of your spouse and be settled down just enough to realize that the "honeymoon period" is over. However, our honeymoon has yet to end. We are crazy in love and he is my very best friend.
(The never-ending honeymoon;))
I tell you this not to brag, even though it is something to brag about. I tell you this because I think that people don't talk about GOOD marriages anymore. Think about it, when is the last time you were sitting with a girlfriend and she said "I gotta tell you, I just LOVE my husband!". I mean seriously, that does not happen much anymore. Usually, in my world, if someone is talking about their husband it is to either complain about something that they forgot to do or something that they have done that was a bad idea.
So, I have decided that when I write about my husband, I am going to write about the good stuff. Now, understand we are not perfect, he is not perfect and I by no means intend to paint that picture. However, I think everyone needs to know there are good marriages even in homes that are full of everyday stress just like mine and yours.
In addition to that I intend to stay in the "honeymoon period" as long as possible, and focusing on the good stuff has to be a good start to that right!?
28 years and counting and wanted to tell you it is possible to be in the "honeymoon period". I am still overwhelmed by the fact that my husband still rocks my world in so many ways. I have a great guy and I truly don't mind telling everyone every single day. Be thankful and yes, tell everyone.ReplyDelete
