Since I do so much talking about my heart and our marriage and my faith in our God... It seems only appropriate to highlight the man that makes this space Mr. Thomas and Me. Because without Mr. Thomas, there wouldn't be the blog, I wouldn't be a Mrs., and my world wouldn't look quite as bright. 

Without much fanfare or further ado, please meet Mr. T. 
A man with great taste in women and food, but not in fashion. 
A man who owned two pairs of jeans and two pairs of shoes when we married. (Oh how that's changed)
A man who believes no meal is complete without a meat-based protein.
A man who grew up with a backyard of turtles and just as many stories to go with them.
.
A man whose grown used to the mild danger I seem to attract. 
A man who bought a brand new car then almost had it blown up by an illegal firecracker on Fourth of July. 
A man whose learned that most occasions garner celebration simply because we can.
A man who embraces every photo op I invent... Plus makes his own.
A man whose got a bit of baby fever -to match my oohs and aahs. 
A man who loves my family just as his own. 
A man whose family is as rich with tradition as mine. 
A man who rocks a deep V and a baby in ways that make me proud to be his wife. 
A man who always rises to the occasion -even if it's a frosty black diamond. 
A man who enjoys drinks at the bar at the base of the slopes as much as he does the snow.
A man who believes barbecue is always the answer.
A man whose smarts outdo his good looks -really though, he's a genius.

A man whose sense of adventure and humor drug me through an eight mile hike on our honeymoon.
A man who could probably get me to do it again -with wine.
A man who loves the outdoors more than I can understand. 
A man whose dream is to own a bass fishing boat and catch us some dinner. 
The man whose heart belongs to two little ladies -one Hazel, one blonde. 
The man who serves our family with a strong, quiet spirit. 
The man who helps heal the hurts of loss with his humility and jokes. 
This man, he is, Mr. T.
