I just need to brag on my Hubs for a minute.

Just before Christmas, I met up with a friend and her two kids at a local hotel to look at their decorated Christmas trees. While there, I noticed our local Civic Center had decorated one to promote Cirque du Soleil, which would be preforming right after my birthday.

I came home and told Hubby that was all I wanted for my birthday. I showed him where to order to the tickets, showed him a clip of the show, and reminded him that this was the present for my birthday.

Two days later, I opened my Christmas presents. Check them out:

See it in front of my new Beautiful America calendar? Those would be my tickets to Cirque du Soleil. The tickets that Hubby bought at wrapped weeks before I even knew the show was coming to our area.

Oh he is good y’all.


Its been a while since I bragged on Hubby here, so I decided today was the perfect day to do some extending bragging!

Generally around here, I’m the one who comes up with a crazy idea, and Hubby does the math and all the heavy lifting and building to make it happen. His levels of handiness far surpass what I ever imaged possible when I married him.

Since we moved into our house not quite two years ago, Hubby has built several pieces of furniture for our massive deck.

He built two of these Adirondack chairs and footrests.

And one large picnic table, which can hold three people on each side, if they like each other, and two on either end, if you pull up a chair.

So Hubby really is the brains and brawn behind any project here at Longbrake Living. What about you, who is the brains and/or brawn behind what you do?

Just a 20-something girl living on the East Coast, trying to figure out life. I'm a wife and mom to two. I'm trying to rediscover my love for long walks, yoga and pilates. But not hiking. I still don't like hills. I was raised at the beach, but I don't like the beach. I like to look at it, but I don't like to swim in it, I'd prefer a pool, thanks. I'm just trying to become the best person I can be -- the woman God wants me to be. That's easier said than done!

Hubby is my all-time favorite guy. A perfect mix of serious, sarcastic, laid-back, handy and nerdy, he is the perfect complement to me. I love his strong work-ethic and the way he always loves and supports me through everything. Some of Hubby's favorite things include: hiking, Virginia Tech football, woodworking, and his family. When I married him in July 2007, I had no idea what an amazing journey we were headed on, and how I could come to love him so much more each day.

Our oldest, Colton, is three years old. He is equal parts sassy and hysterical. He loves all things train, car, bus, truck, and machine related. He has a penchant for made-up words and loves to be the clown of his pre-school class. Our younger son, Nathan, was born this May. He is pure joy and full of smiles! He is such a blessing and a perfect fit for our family.
