Today is my husband’s birthday. He told me “not to make a big deal of it” but since when do I ever listen to him? (Kidding! But he’s amazing and I have to honor him on his birthday in some way!).
I want to share a story about Anel (his name which is pronounced like Chanel). A few months ago, when I decided to quit my job he was my biggest supporter. Instead of worrying about cutting our income significantly, he told me that he would be fine even if we end up having to scrimp and save for the next year (which I hope we won’t have to) because I’ll be following my dreams and that is what matters. What kind of man says something like that? He amazes me every day.
Whenever I have a bad day and freak myself out about going back to get a “regular” job he reminds me why I’m doing what I’m doing and tells me that there is no way he would be so supportive if he didn’t think I would be successful. I can’t tell you how much that has done for my confidence and my happiness.
Not to mention that he can make me laugh harder than anyone else and is the most caring adorable man on earth. NBD.
Anel, I love you and am so happy that I married you. Even though you watch and obsess over every single Knicks game. Hey, maybe one day I’ll get used to it, right?
