My Sweet Husband

This post is for my husband. A week ago on my Birthday he came home with these beautiful flowers. Jim normally doesn't buy me flowers because he knows how I feel about them. I love flowers but I would rather have the $$ spent on flowers for shopping and buy something that lasts longer. But it was so sweet of him to think of it and I really do love them. Even though we stayed home to celebrate my Birthday this year Jim went out of his way to make it special.
Jim is a wonderful husband, throughout our marriage he has always been so caring, sweet and helpful. While I was pregnant he was amazing and always did little things for me that made being pregnant just a bit easier. Never did I dream that once we had a baby that would change. Well it has....for the better. I am in awe at how great he is with Elise. He really is a GREAT father. I am so in love with him and love to watch him with her. He has also taken care of everything around the house so I don't have to worry about it. I feel so lucky to be married to such a great man.
I know he will kill me for putting this in but I think it deserves attention. A couple of months ago Jim got a letter from the University of Utah asking him to submit a speech for Graduation. After much persuasion from me he decided to do it. Well, this week the U called and he is one of 10 people chosen to come give their speech in front of a committee. If chosen he will be speaking at Commencement on May 2. I am so proud of him and all he has accomplished!
Love you baby! Good luck on Monday.
