allow me to brag on my husband for a bit . . .
tomorrow we leave for a seven-day caribbean cruise. yes, he's taking me on a cruise :)
i have the best husband ever -- and not just because he's taking me on a cruise. i cannot imagine being married to anyone else. or, choosing to not marry michael. last weekend, i went to a women's conference. during one of the sessions, the speaker through out some crazy statistic about how the majority of women interviewed, if given the opportunity again, would have chosen not to marry their husbands. i guess that's evident by the divorce rate in the u.s. still, my friends and i looked at each other agast. michael isn't perfect, but he's perfect for me.
last night he took me to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants: maggiano's. he bought me a new (and quite expensive) swimsuit for our cruise -- which he picked out himself. he tells me why he loves me on a regular basis and does "husband-y" things around the house (like rearranging the living room and bedroom). he finds great deals (like our cruise) and is very responsible with money. he supports my sometimes-crazy adventures, like training for and riding the ms 150 last year. he goes to midwife appointments with me . . . and seems to enjoy it. and he'll be a phenomenal support during birth.
and in six months, he'll be a fantastic father.
