Day 1 of things I love starts with none other than KC, aka the hubs. I will warn you this post may get mushy. Heck, I may even cry. But what can I say? It's all true. Kelly and I have been together for close to 20 years and married for almost 15. I KNOW.........WOW!!!! We met at a football game in 1993. I ADORE hearing him tell the story of the first time we saw each other and how he can remember exactly what I was wearing (big time brownie points). We dated for over 4 years and then I decided I couldn't wait any longer. I was in nursing school at the time and knew the following August I would have a 2 week break between semesters. So, what did I do? I did what any control freak would do. I came home one day and asked "do you want to get married August 22nd or the 29th". Needless to say, we were married August 29, 1998.
We have always been in love. But I have to say, for the past 2-3 years I haven't been able to stop thinking about how much I love this guy! My "addiction" for him really started when he decided to turn his life over to God. I soooo wish I could remember the date, but I don't. For years I begged for him to go to church with us, and he did on occasion. But one day I realized, "hey Kelly's been to church with us 3 weeks in a row". I was ecstatic! Then I remember noticing a difference. That difference you can't put your finger on, you don't know exactly what it is, but you know it's something. It was God (tissue time). How awesome?!! This is another one of those stories I ADORE hearing him tell.....how God changed his life.
I could list SO many things KC has done for me, how he spoils me, and ways he ROCKS my world, but that would get just plain sickening! ;) The fact that he puts up with and supports all of my "big fat dreams" is proof enough.
Since I obviously can't put him in the prize basket (sorry again ladies), I decided to giveaway something that is a new favorite of his.
We both are crazy about this book! My mom gave it to KC as an Easter gift. He couldn't stop reading it! The following week we went to her house for lunch. He thanked her for the book and said that for the first time he really felt like God was speaking to him. Of course, I cried and fell in love with him all over again!
Ok ok, dry your eyes and head back to my earlier post to refresh your memory on how to win the goody basket that will include this AMAZING book.
