Wow! It's Friday already! Although I'm not quite sure where this week done got off to, I'm really glad that the weekend is almost here!
Thank y'all for tuning in for another fabulous ~My Husband Rocks!~ Friday! I'm so excited to see what everyone has to say this week! I hope that everyone who participates in this little "carnival" not only posts their thoughts on Fridays, but makes sure let their husbands know that we think they rock, not just on Fridays, but every day! A wife's respect for her husband can truly energize a marriage!
Austin has an amazing sense of adventure, and he is very spontaneous! I remember one evening when we were in college, we were sitting in one of the common areas with Florence, a girl in our class who was from Honduras. We were chatting about our summer plans, and she said, "You should come visit me!" Thinking, I'm sure, that it was a rather remote chance that we would actually take her up on the offer. Austin loved the idea, and immediately went to his dorm room for his laptop computer. He started right away researching plane tickets and planning a way to make this dream trip a reality.
I believe that this was the moment that I knew without a doubt that I would spend the rest of my life with him. You see, I have always been a huge dreamer/planner. When I was about 12, I wanted a horse, so I worked out an entire savings plan for how I would get the money, researched a place where I could board it, read all of the books the library had on horse care and showing, and when it got to actually putting the plan into action - nothing. I also LOVE to travel, so when we were younger, my sister, Kelli, and I would pull out the big atlas, open it randomly and drop our finger on a spot then plan an entire trip to the location our finger landed upon. Granted, we were just kids when we made these plans, but they never really left the dreaming stage. (But, Kelli, I would LOVE to make this dream a reality!)
So, when Austin came up with one of these (seemingly) hairbrained ideas, and then made it happen, (Yes, we actually spent 14 days in Honduras the summer after our college graduation!) I was absolutely hooked!
This picture was not taken in Honduras (actually, we cannot find any of the pictures we took in Honduras, the memory card was either completely erased, or jumped out of the camera somewehre between San Pedro Sula, Miami, and Chicago). This was actually at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. We were visiting my family the summer before our wedding, and they were letting people hold a python to get donations to save the hippos. (I know, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but hey - we got to hold a python!) This picture just screams "adventure" to me, and since we don't have any Honduras pics, I thought I'd include it in my "adventurous/spontaneous" post :)
Austin can match me step for step with big dreams, and crazy plans, and he actually has the gumption to make it happen! He so totally rocks! :)
