Ode to Brian

Brian has an innate ability to smack into one of his 4 different personalities every time a camera is pointed in his direction. These are a couple of my favs that we've taken over the years....

Just thought you should know...
I love who I married. I love this man. He dances like a drunken fool in the privacy of our kitchen. He is a sponge to all things creative and beautiful. He is aware of his weaknesses and listens to his conscience. He's the guy that takes the cart back to the designated area and pays all his taxes, and plugs the parking meters. He puts stuff back at the grocery store if he goes over budget. He can take a lot of nothing and turn it into a haven. He will research paint colors for 2 months before choosing the asparagus green over the apple green for the bathroom. He loves "deglazing the pan" when he cooks and keeping extra cleaners on hand just incase he has time to detail our cars over the weekend.
He fills his free time with productivity; like mowing lawns and fixing drains and building arbors and drylocking our old basement. He wants a motorcycle from the mid-seventies and he is faithful to the Nebraska Husker football team. He compliments me on every meal I make infront of our kids and then tells me later the truth about it. :)
He loves the cold and crisp weather and wants to master the fly-fisher rod. After nearly 6 years of marriage I am truthfully claiming to like him more now than ever.
He's not perfect, ... but he's humble... which means he's on his way to perfection. And... he can throw me into fits of laughter that put my Billy Blanks workout to shame.
