Hello, friends!! First of all, if you are not familiar with #MCM, it stands for Man Crush Monday. And we’ll get to that juicy tidbit (with pictures!!) in a moment.
I have been on a couple vacations recently which means I have totally neglected my blog….but I also kind of blog freaked out. After just getting back into blogging after taking a few years off, I recently had a moment where I was like, aaaaaah, I don’t have anything else to say! Maybe it was writers block, maybe some good ol’ fashioned insecurity, but I felt like I had didn’t have anything worth blogging about. But then I finally remembered, it’s a blog. And it’s my blog. It’s not the Wall Street Journal. No one is coming here for hard hitting news that’s going to rock their socks off. I guess I don’t know why people will read my blog. I can only hope that it brings you a moment of amusement in your day. And with that hope, I can take a little stress off myself and remember I’m doing this for fun and to use some of my creative writing and styling skills again.
But I digress. Let’s get back to my Man Crush. Who else would I pick than my husband?! Hellooooo, have you seen him? My goodness he is a fine looking thang. But he’s so much more than that.
So, we just got back from a long family road trip to Florida and oddly enough it made me fall in love with him a little more. Traveling with two boys under the age of four is STRESSFUL with a capital everything. It was a wonderful trip that we got to enjoy with my brother and his family, too. So many fun and special memories were made. But the biggest take away from that trip is how selfless my husband is. He let me sleep in every morning, getting the boys fed and keeping them quiet so “mommy can rest”. He would play with them from sun up to sun down with the energy of, well, a young boy. And when I got sick at the end of the trip, he packed us up, drove the whole ride home, late into the night, to get me safely into my bed. He is Superman, I’m sure of it. It’s the only thing that explains his crazy super hero strength and energy. I love this guy more today than yesterday and look forward to a lifetime of growing love together. And without further ado, here’s my #MCM
