Simple Man


I married a Texas born, Oklahoma raised, simple kind of man. He had always pictured himself married with two children, and was willing to wait almost six years until I could picture it too. After serving four years behind a desk in the Air Force, he knew he wanted to make a career doing anything but sitting all day. While I always imagined I’d marry a scholarly man, I accepted, with some trepidation, his decision to pursue what he dreamed. In our ten years together I can honestly say that he has never steered me wrong. He is a thoughtful man when it comes to making decisions while I’m more hasty and impatient.

He is the reason we have such a wonderful life together. Which is why I didn’t hesitate to make another one of his dreams a reality. We are now the proud owners of…


…a garage fridge dedicated entirely to beer (ish)!

Our new home came with a fridge so we had an extra one and Elijah was finally able to fulfill a lifelong dream of filling a refrigerator entirely with beer. After everything he’s done for me, this was the very least I could do. Plus, I get to fill the freezer side with Edy’s seasonal peppermint ice cream so I can enjoy it year round!

    This is awesome!! And I have been racking my brain trying to get together some ideas for my husband for Christmas. I may get on Craig's List to see if there are some good deals for his very own beer fridge.

    You have a keeper- well “keepers” Elijah and the beer fridge. A guy who keeps things simple and who can take great photographs. *And* you have peppermint ice cream. Life is good.
