Today is my cowboy's birthday. This year, I need to take a moment to publicly appreciate him for being the man that he is. I have introduced him to you before, but after the summer we've had, I have seen and experienced Tony's character in a deeper way. He is a man of integrity. He is brave. He is one of the most loving and compassionate daddy's our kids could have. (He's the one they want when they're sick or scared.) He does make everything seem better. And after losing our baby daughter, he is my rock. He pointed me to truth, he held me while I cried, and he made me laugh to stay sane. I love that he faces "the hard" without looking away and with such courage. I love you, honey!
I was also going to thank Tony for the best date we've had in 6 months a few days ago. We brought in a babysitter, bought a hotel room through Hotwire, and had uninterrupted conversation for 24 hours. If you have small children, whether you live on a ranch or not, get a night with your husband. It is the only way I fully relax with no laundry to start, no dishes to clean, and nobody who needs me. Tony especially enjoyed this date because we enjoyed good food at a restaurant in Denver he had been wanting to try. So, here we are sharing drinks, great food, and great conversation. It is moments like this that we remember why we fell in love. Now, on to the next 30 years together!
