I generally only post creative pieces on my blogs but today is a special day- Today is my best friends birthday, his name is Derek, and I also get the blessing of being his wife.
I wanted to make a post to honor him as he is an amazing husband who supports me in every endeavor and encourages me to keep creating. Derek is the husband who knows just how much joy it brings me to be creating upstairs in my studio, he will bring me a cup of tea and chat with me while I create. Derek never complains when I host a boutique in our home which transforms every corner into a world of creativity, instead he is found helping me hang things from the ceiling, cleaning off walkways and encouraging me every step of the way. He is amazing!
Derek is the type of man who says he wants the lyrics of the song, "lived a good life, loved a good wife, always helped someone in trouble. On the lay they lay me down I want everyone to gather round and say he was a father, neighbor and a friend- he was a good man." to be the song that portrays the life he leads; and it surely does.
I love him because he has a tender and humble heart, he gives before taking, he is positive, he is relaxed and easy going, he is quick to listen and slow to speak, he doesn't like debating, and he loves me unconditionally. I'll have to admit he's pretty handsome too.
Here are some photos- I hope you enjoy meeting the man who stands with me.
Our Wedding Day
Fishing, Camping and hunting are a few of his favorite things to do.
He dressed up as The Mad Hatter for my Alice In Wonderland Birthday Tea Party and served the ladies tea and cookies. This blessed my heart tremendously!
He Loves traveling! This summer we went to the DR for a resort vacation- Next stop Europe
Happy Birthday Derek- I love you!
