He works tirelessly to give my children and I the best life possible. He is always fixing up the yard, remodelling our home, building our furniture, designing future additions to keep up with our changing needs as a family, and cooking at least 6 nights a week (spectacularly*, I might add!) I have stopped apologizing that I don't have dinner ready more often, because whenever I do say it, he always replies, "Don't you think over the next 40 or 50 years, it will even out?" What a sweetheart. He never complains about anything, or expects anything, just that he wants to come home to us every night. The pic above was takenof us together about four years ago in a biergarten in Fredricksburg, one of Paul's favorite places on earth...
He's also an amazing father. The kids dote on him. He is silly, kind, an expert tickler, wrestler, snuggler, and patient with them when they "help" in his workshop in a way I am NOT when they're in my stamp room!
Here he is with our first born, Jonathan (who is the spitting image of his dad now BTW!)
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! My interview on Featured Crafter Friday will be up tomorrow, 2/15, at 6AM CST, and I will have a new card with "Just So Hoppy" you have not yet seen, please check it out!
*If I ever share any recipes on this blog, it'll be his, not mine!! I was going to include one of my faves he made Sunday in honor of my stamp release, but I'll have to save that for another night, he's been waiting very patiently for me while I finish my entry, gotta run!**it need not be this particular beirgarten to be his favorite, any beirgarten will do
