Year One

I don't even know how to begin this post. No, I take that back. I AM SO PROUD OF MY HUSBAND.

As of last night, Jason has completed his first year of law school. While working a full time job as a paralegal, and having me for a wife {I kid on that last part. sort of}.

He won't get summer grades for weeks, but pass or fail, we have one year under our belt! I realize I just said "we" and you may be thinking, "Um, when did you get accepted into law school?", and of course the answer is, I didn't. But being a law school widow has been a very challenging thing for me, for Jason, and at our casa {see what I did there?}, but it made me stronger. Jason was already strong.

But enough about me, back to my spouse...


I love you. I am proud of you. I have NO idea how you do it. I try and help as much as I can to make anything in your personal life more easy, but at the same time as your wife, and friend, there is only so much I can do. You never expect anything from anyone and just keep going. When I get sad pissed off because you can't join me out for the night and/or are too tired to move, or have to study one hundred and fifty pages over the weekend, you don't complain at all. You're amazing. I don't think I really tell you that, but I hope you know it. I know you're exhausted but know that I am so proud of you, and impressed. If I were in your shoes, I think either the job or school would have had to go. And you keep on going. If you don't die by the end of this all, I know it will be worth it.

One down, three to go...
