He’s so thoughtful. As much as he doesn’t want to admit it —“I’m not thoughtful, I don’t know what you’re talking about” — he really is. I’m talking about Husband, of course. Saturday night he surprised me by taking me out for dinner and drinks to celebrate some milestones with my book. He arranged for a sitter, invited my sister and her boyfriend, and picked this great little Mexican restaurant with the best raspberry margaritas I’ve ever had. I had no idea that any of this was happening until about 30 minutes before we were headed out.
Yeah, I think I’ll keep him.
What milestones were we celebrating? Glad you asked. The release date for my book, “Help! I’m a Newlywed…What Do I Do Now? Wife-Saving Advice Every New Bride Must Know to Survive the First Year of Marriage,” has been appropriately set for September 20, 2008 — Wife Appreciation Day. I also received a limited amount of special advance copies from the printer. In addition to using them for press and promotional purposes, I will have some available for sale through my website later this month.
Although it’s been a labor of love, a lot of hard work has gone into this book and it’s so rewarding to see it coming to fruition. It’s also wonderful how supportive and “thoughtful” Husband has through the entire process. Lord knows I’ve taken us through some stressful moments — we won’t go there — but Husband’s always helped to keep me on track. I appreciate his love, his encouragement, his belief in me, and his ability to find the best tequila in town. Here’s to many more thoughtful celebrations.
