I’ve tried hard to keep the newlywed mushiness to a minimum here on Alexandra’s Joys, but today I can’t help but share what’s on my mind.
My new job is in full swing and I couldn’t be enjoying myself more. That said, things are hectic. There is so much to do and learn and contrary to my typical organized self, this morning was a bit rough. To begin, I was running late, couldn’t find a tank to layer under my great new Anthropologie Bretonnes blouse and then the jewel went flying off my feather headband the moment I put it on my head. Rough, I know.
In attempts to load my various items into the car, I spilled coffee all over the sunroof. Rattled that I was out three sips of java, away I drove into a.m. traffic. Red light, nice, I loaded up on the hand lotion. And there went one of my diamond wedding bands off into SUV oblivion. A panicked phone call to my hubby followed.
That little recap brings me to what my husband's morning looked like:
7 a.m. Wake up to frazzled wife cuz she’s late
7:30 a.m. Drive to fill up SUV with gas for wife who didn’t do it last night cuz she was in a skirt and heels
7:45 a.m. Pick up frantic wife’s favourite coffee
8:00 a.m. Make breakfast for hungry wife
8:15 a.m. Back to bed, Zzzz…
8:30 a.m. Panicked phone call from crying wife
9 a.m. Drive to mall to search SUV for lost diamond wedding band
9:15 a.m. Deliver found diamond wedding band to wife at work
9:30 a.m. Home to try and catch some sleep before a night shift
Prior to today's drama, I arrived home earlier this week from training in Edmonton and found a clean house, a list of to-do’s checked off and no laundry. I was also greeted by flowers from Pease Blossoms, the Sex and the City 2 DVD and a set of beautiful handmade cards. From our first date to our engagement, in the good times and the rough patches, he has been calm, caring and consistent.
You know those people in your life that make you want to be less selfish, more giving and more forgiving? My husband is that person for me. He is in simplest terms, a really good man.
I was blessed with an amazing dad, a great brother and now an incredible husband. I hope this inspires you to recognize and appreciate the good men in your life. Share with me about the good men you know. I’d love to hear and I’m sure they would too.
I wish to brighten your day with a little inspiration. Inspiration to try something new. Inspiration to find joy in cooking and crafting, entertaining and styling, writing and sharing. I’m Alexandra Joy and I have many joys to share.
