52 Weeks of Gratitude: Week 2

To say I am grateful for my husband is a huge understatement. I think that most married couples would say that they go through periods where they forget to truly be grateful for their spouse. Life gets hectic and kids come along and your focus gets pulled. But it's always a great feeling to sit back and really reflect on how much we depend on and love our spouse and all that they do. So here I am on week 2 of the gratitude challenge, very grateful for Ethan.

If you don't know the story of Ethan and Kristin, I'll give you a quick run down.

The Story of Us

Ethan and I really met at a Band Luau my freshman year of college, but he will tell you he doesn't remember meeting me. I will never let him forget that I obviously didn't make much of an impression. haha After friend requesting him on Facebook, he started messaging me and we made plans to meet up at one of my dorm functions. We sat and talked for a couple of hours about music and our likes. A few days later he asked me out and we went on our first date. He was sweet and a total gentleman but I wasn't looking to really date anyone.

Over the next few months I gave Ethan a hard time as we got closer. I was torn between not wanting to get serious and actually really liking him and so I pulled away. A lot. But he stuck in there and I fell. Hard. The rest is history. 

My Best Friend

There is no one in this world who knows me better or challenges me more than Ethan does. We can have fun just sitting at home binge watching Netflix or out playing games at Dave and Busters. He's just fun to be around. I am so grateful for someone that I can always be myself with. It's hard to just stop and have fun with all that life throws at us daily. He knows how to get me up and out when stress has just taken over. 

He's smart, (too smart), talented, funny and hard working. He is an amazing husband and the best father. I am so blessed to call him mine and grateful doesn't even begin to cover it.
