The man who makes my coffee

Kevin and Adrienne

What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

I don’t often blog about Kevin, even though I love him with all my heart. We’ve been together 20 years and our wedding anniversary is coming up on 19 years. I jokingly always mention the fact that he makes the coffee, and it’s true. He makes it every night and every morning he goes in and pours me a cup and puts Splenda and half and half in it and brings it to me. I am very spoiled, because the man doesn’t even drink coffee himself.

My husband isn’t perfect, but he’s a great man. Most people really like him, he has a quick wit and he is kind. He’s not gregarious in the way I am, and he is probably a lot nicer in many ways. He was raised by a strong and wonderful woman who clearly taught him how to love and respect a woman.

Kevin is a numbers guy, an accountant and he likes things orderly, and I know living with 3 hormonal women often throws him for a loop. We try to be gentle, but we are emotional. I’m sure he’s thankful for Nick and a bit of testosterone in our home.

Kevin is not a yard guy, or a fix it man, but that’s ok, he does what he can and he hires out the rest……..thank goodness!

I’m a firm believer in keeping your love and marriage alive and fresh. It’s easy to get caught up in raising your kids and losing touch with the person you began with. We don’t have to spend a lot of money or time away to get that closeness, it can be the occasional date night or dessert out. It can be snuggling when the late news is on, catching each other up on our days before falling asleep. We make that time to stay in touch……..and to appreciate each other.

So if you have a significant other in your life, give that person a hug…………and tell me what keeps you loving that person.
Have a wonderful day……..I’m pouring another cup of coffee!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s nice to meet you! I signed up to be a follower so I’m looking forward to getting to know you!

    As for how my hubby and I stay close – it’s hard because he’s a pilot and when he’s not flying for the airline he’s flying for the Navy (reserves) so I don’t see him as much as I’d like to. So when he is home we try to make the time count! (Not always successful though! LOL!)

    Let’s hear it for the boys! We have so much in common – I could have written this post. Twin girls, good husbands. We have also been together 20 years and married for 19. Sheesh I can’t believe those numbers – feels like 10 at most.

    I have a wonderful hubby, too…when I was sick with tummy troubles the other day, he made me macaroni and cheese. Such a sweetie… *smiles*

    Happy early Anniversary! 🙂

    Ah, what a wonderful man you married! He sounds like a gem, as does your entire family!!!! Thanks for the reminder to put some of the focus back on being husband and wife, as you are so right…it is easy to get lost in all the day to day happenings! Awesome insight and thanks for sharing it with us! 🙂
