When I saw that Becky was hosting a link-up, where the idea was to have one of your loved ones write an "about me" statement for your blog.
The first person I thought of, was of course, Nate. My boyfriend. My best friend. The one who knows me better than most.
I didn't think he'd agree to do it. I thought he'd roll his eyes and ask why he had to participate if it's MY blog. Finally after enough nagging, on my part, he said he'd do it. But give him a few days.
But I wanted it NOW. Like yesterday. But, he did agree to write for me, so I had to give him a little patience.
Although, I didn't understand why it was taking him so long. I just assumed he'd write a few one liners and that'd be it. He'd give me the bare minimum just to shut me up. ;)
Earlier this week, one afternoon, I saw a message pop up on my Facebook notification. Strange, (because I don't actively use FB to chat or message) but I opened it and saw Nate's words.
Nate's words. They brought tears to my eyes. They made me happy. They made me proud to share on my blog.
So, I'll quit rambling, and let him introduce me to you, my amazing readers:
It was a beautiful morning, and as I was putting on my face before heading to work, I was accosted by a fiery, 5 foot brunette. No, not because I was hogging the mirror, but because she needed my words to describe her for her blog. I was forced against my will to put my thoughts to paper… well in this case computer screen. Well, me being the procrastinator that I am… the days turned to weeks until she finally threatened to post unsavory photos of me if I didn’t kick it into gear. All kidding and dramatics aside, let me tell you about Amber that you don’t already know… okay maybe you do.
What you don’t see from Amber is her love of family and her loyalty to friends. The first time you meet her, you would have thought you’ve known her your whole life. She treats you like her best friend right off the bat. She’s willing to go that extra mile for anyone. I would question her patience, but come on, there has to be a reason she’s put with me for this long. She’s also an amazing cook, who’s not afraid to try new things… and she hasn’t poisoned me yet. So, I see that as a plus.
I know I joked a lot while writing this, but that’s me and as I once said to Amber, “Thanks for letting me be me.” She accepts everyone for who they are and is very open minded. Plus, she is very dedicated to her blog and grateful for everything she gets in return from it. Whether it’s a kind word or free dish soap… oh wait… that’s me that was grateful.
Love you, Amber and truth is, the reason I was delaying this is there is no real way to truly write about you… sometimes words just don’t do the trick. Everyone say it with me, “Awwww!!!”
I feel even more in love with him than I did before. Which I wasn't sure was possible.
I know, it's just a short excerpt of a description about me. But to me? It means the world. It means the world to me that he knew how much it meant for him to blog here for y'all. Plus, his words make me melt. Isn't he an amazing writer? ;)
Anyway, that's my "about me" from the love of my life.
Happy Friday y'all!
