World’s Best Husband

In Uncategorized on October 11, 2010 at 3:14 pm

I am certain I have the world’s best husband.  And not in a superficial, “he buys me lots of nice things” kind of a way.  This is not what I measure my Husband’s love by.  When I met him 8 years ago I instantly knew he was “the one.”  No joke.  I was only nineteen and it scared me so much that I didn’t even return his phone call once he got up the courage to ask me out.  A few months went by, we went completely separate ways, but even then he was still on my mind.  By that point it required an extensive phone call chain to contact Hunter (because I didn’t have his phone number).  But on February 15th, 2003 he called me again and I picked up this time… and we have been utterly inseparable ever since.

He hasn’t done anything particularly special today to earn this blog dedicated solely to him.  He is just himself, and that is what I love.  He is the happiest, realest, funniest guy I know.  When he is gone during the day I miss hanging out with him.  I got used to spending all day, every day with him when I was his Assistant in LA.  Even then it was great hanging out with my best friend all the time… even if I did have to call him boss 🙂  And we have been through some crazy ups and downs over the past seven years.  But the great thing was that no matter what the storm, I had my best friend to trek through it with.

I am so glad that he didn’t let us rush into having children (although I pushed very hard).  Now I look back on those 4 1/2 years of marriage that we had alone and I truly treasure them.  And the greatest thing about it is that by the time I was all pregnant crazy and post-pregnant crazy, Hunter knew it wasn’t the real me.  I told him I wonder what would have happened if we had children right away.  I know I would have left me.  He never would have… he’s just strong like that.  But I am telling you, I was crazy.  And me being crazy is a whole lot to deal with.

I can’t wait for him to get home from work tonight.  Most evenings Ella and I stand on the back deck, staring at his parking spot in anticipation.  I can’t wait to see her big grin and hear her squeal as he opens the door.  I can’t wait to hang out with him, have a glass of wine, watch some 30 Rock and make subtle jabs at each other (jokingly, of course).  So here is to being more in love now than I was eight years ago.  I’ve always heard people say love grows like that, but I never thought it possible!

Exactly 1 week after we started dating.

And an amazing father too.

And the absolute love of my life

  1. LOVE IT! I’m so happy for you Kim! Even if we weren’t related (which is basically awesome) I would still want the best for you and I’m so thankful that you opened up your heart and let it happen! Can’t wait to see you all this December.


  2. I kid you not, for a very split second after seeing the first picture, I was like why did Kim put up a picture of Hunter with another girl. Duh, Irene.

    Cute post, PS.
