My Husband, My Hero

I know, I know. In the "Meet Kate" post I already told you a bit about my husband, Mr. Marvelous. But I couldn't resist sharing some more about my good fortune. Having this guy in my life is great.

Writing romance has been a lot easier since he came into my life. For one thing, he's gorgeous. I know that makes me sound shallow, but seriously! It's somewhat inspiring to be married to a tall, dark and handsome dreamboat.

More importantly, though, he fully supports my writing career. Mr. Marvelous has offered to shoulder our financial burdens if I want to quit my day job and pursue writing full time (which is awesome, but also terrifying in this economy... I think I'll wait on that one!)

For Christmas, he got me an online writing course with Patricia Kay. This has been one of the best professional development opportunities I've ever experienced, and one which I highly recommend to you all!

Last but not least, he's got his priorities in order. Last winter we discussed the fact that we'd rather spend our free time pursuing our hobbies (his), ambitions (mine), or the fine art of being ooey-gooey married people (us). This seems much more important than scouring tile scum. So guess what Mr. Marvelous did? He did research and hired us a maid service! They come two times a month, and it's been great thus far. It's easier to be inspired in a clean environment--especially if I didn't have to clean it!

I realize I'm incredibly lucky. So feel free to congratulate or heckle me (as the spirit moves you). Better yet, tell us a bit about your own romantic hero/heroine!

congrats! You should definitely brag about your hubby. You married the guy for these reasons right?
He sounds like your best friend and that's very cool.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you around bloggyville :)

My darling husband and I were married nearly 24 yrs. ago. And we've had our share of ups and downs and ups again. But one thing remains steadily beating in my heart:his he is MY HERO. He is in all my books, sure his outer shell isn't Hugh Jackman, but on the inside, he's my man. The man who supports me, who challenges me, who cries with me, who laughs with me and who tells all who will isten--she's my best girl!

Now that's a HERO!!

Gotta love him!

What a sweetheart! I *wish* I had a maid service! (Instead, I am the maid service.) :)
