{The Man behind the Mama}

I am loving this Mama's tell all series and so glad that "The Man behind the Mama" is one of the topics of this series!! I love to brag on my man any chance I get.  He is seriously one of the greatest people I have ever met. When I count my blessings I count him over and over and over. And I thank God for bringing this sweet man into my life almost 19 years ago. I know it sounds cliche, but I seriously do not know where I would be without my Nathan. He is my everything! I'm truly blessed to be married to my best friend.

It's been nothing short of amazing to grow up and grow together with Nathan. I mean, we were babies when we first met and started dating. He has taught me so much about life and love and everything in between.We have had so many great adventures together as well as hard times that I am not sure I would have made it through without Nathan there to carry me. And every day I say that I don't think I could love him anymore he proves me otherwise.  At this rate, my heart just may burst as much as it grows for him. :)

Speaking of hearts, Nathan has a heart bigger than Texas and would do anything for anyone without thinking twice.  He is kind to everyone that he meets and is well liked by everyone.  He enjoys good conversation and will sit and talk or listen to you for hours. It's no wonder why he meets friends at places like the gas pump!  He's the real deal y'all. Genuine. Amazing. 

When Nathan became a Father to our son, Mason, was the day that my love for him soared to a whole other level. To see him so seamlessly and so proudly step into the Father role...oh man...I can't tell you what that did to my heart. It was a sure sign he had found one of his callings in life....to be a daddy! From day one he has been a hands-on daddy.  I mean, he has always been involved in everything and celebrates the small victories as well as the big ones with me.  Parenthood is not the easiest thing in the world, but being in it with Nathan makes it all the more sweeter.

We make a good team and I always tell people that he is the calm to my chaos! I am a worrier by nature and let things work me into a melt down and a migraine and he is so calm, cool and collected and brings to me to the level I need to be at. We couldn't be more opposite in this area. I'm the one hiding in the closet with cushions and he's the one standing out watching the storm. Yeah, I guess he's a little crazy, too. ha. But, we balance each other out.

As for Nathan and who he is as a person {and not just my amazing husband/mason's awesome dad}; he is a man with a passion for baseball, coaching kids in baseball/tball, fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, anything outdoors, trucks, traveling, college football, off-roading, all things manly and his family. He will find any reason he can to be outdoors and to be doing something. He loves to tinker; whether that is with cars, trucks, jeeps, just around his shop or even with power wheels. ha!  

He is also a fort-making, cops/bad guy chasing, lego building, super dad and is the best grilled-cheese maker if you ask Mason!

  3. He sounds wonderful! I love when you mentioned growing up together. My husband and I were young when we met, 19. And people felt we were too young, we would change so much. But ten years later... we have changed. we have changed into a even better match because we have grown together. Being a awesome fort builder is a must for any parent!

  16. What a great tribute to your love! I read your story the other day and after reading about his health scare, I am so glad to see how it has all turned out so well. It is so special when you can find a true love, someone who balances you and fills you and loves you above and beyond.

  18. This is perfection. I can't believe you've known your hubby for 19 years - what a blessing! Isn't it great how even though you know someone for so long you can see how they transform as a person over the years? And it's so evident when you have children together. Thanks for joining the Mamas Tell All Linkup.
