Well, well, well. Major congratulations are in order for this handsome husband of mine -- who officially started pharmacy rotations this week! Finally, after 3 didactic years (read: studying till 2 a.m. most nights) he's hopping from pharmacy to pharmacy for his final year of grad school.  I am so proud of him, and so happy to see that sweet, genuine smile of his, knowing it's the beginning of the end. It's an accomplishment for anyone. But I am, admittedly, particularly amazed by this guy, who has beat the odds in so many ways. I often forget, completely, that he has cystic fibrosis. You would never know, because you know what? He never complains. Not ever. Not about that. Or about all-night cram sessions. Or about the wild hours he works sometimes. Or about the time he missed a full week of school to go into the hospital. Or about anything, really, ever. He takes everything with grace, with open arms, with a can-do spirit that I wish the rest of us could buy in bulk. I've a handful of heroes, but he is always, and forever, my first.

    1. Yes! All I can say is...this man deserves a lonngggg vacation when he's all done. You know, before he has to start working as a pharmacist full time to pay back that mountain of student loans. ; ) Hope the end of his school journey goes smoothly!

  3. Congratulations to your spunk of a husband! You must be super proud!

    My good friend has suffered from CF since she was born and it's been so inspirational to watch her grow and mature into a woman who I can look up to. Her passion for life and her appreciation for everything around her is something I take for granted in my own life sometimes. If your man is anything like my friend, then wow! What an inspiration you must wake up to every morning x

  7. Congratulations to your hubby! It's so common for wives to always be bashing their husbands but I love how you are such an encouragement to him. As hard as he's worked...he probably couldn't have done it without an encouraging wife.... :)

    1. Also, i forgot to say! Prayers for your hubby concerning his condition. My husband has a chronic disease but like yours, he never complains and he is so humble and always so positive. But nonetheless, prayers for a healthy husband for you and me both! xo

  12. Beautiful post.

    I've been reading your blog for a while and have waited for the right time to comment.

    These words, praising your significant other, are most precious. I love that you hold him as one of your heroes. We should all be so lucky as to find a little bit of what you have.

    PS: I've wanted a French Bulldog for a while and have been seriously contemplating looking for one...would you mind if I emailed you directly with some questions?
