Anthony... The Man, the Myth, the Motivator!

In one week (4/14/15), Anthony and I will be celebrating our three year wedding anniversary!  I cannot believe how fast time has been flying.  He is truly an amazing guy and I am blessed every single day we spend together.  He is goofy, funny, silly, smart, hot, and an all around amazing husband.  He is a dedicated son, uncle, brother, brother-in-law, and son-in-law.  He is extremely athletic and has had many amazing life experiences.  He's the kind of guy that you could put in a room of strangers and he would end up making many new friends.

This morning, he pulls me aside to show me a passage in the book he is reading, "The Warrior Within" by Bruce Lee.  My husband is very involved in Martial Arts and he loves everything related to Martial Arts.  So when he told me to read the passage, all I could think was, "Great, I'm going to see someone doing Karate or speaking words of wisdom like Mr. Miyagi."  Instead, this is what I read...

I was stunned.  This passage was so beautiful, such a wonderful way to talk about a couple.  Anthony said to me, "When I read this, I thought of us."  My heart literally melted.  I am so lucky to have a man that thinks so much of us as a married couple.  

Not only is Anthony an amazing husband and an awesome friend... He's my biggest supporter!  He constantly encourages me on this journey.  He supports my crazy/awesome obsession with all things #wwsendtheloveteamslim related.  He understands when I am spending hours on Skype with my girls.  He helps me to stay motivated, even when I'm feeling down.  He makes sure to let me know I look BEAUTIFUL... That I look thinner... That I'm shrinking... That I'm kicking serious ass!  Without him, this journey would be much more difficult.

With all of this said about Anthony, I do have many other amazing people in my life who support everything I have been doing.  He is just that constant motivator and cheerleader.  I know I can always turn to him and he will be there.  

Writing this is making me feel a little emotional because we have been through a lot together and I could not think of a better person to spend the rest of my life with.  He really completes me (no matter how cheesy that may sound)!  I look forward to a lifetime together... I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish together!
