Can we all just pause for a second and talk about Geoffrey? See, he’s turning forty today – and that gives me FULL license to brag about him a little bit (or AS MUCH AS I WANT TO).
Here’s the thing about Geoff. He’s the one who proved me wrong. See, before I met him, I would have told you that things like kindness, generosity, and selflessness were a lost art. But Geoff lives those things every single day. He’s THAT GUY. That guy who lets you park your car at his place while you’re away on vacation – and cleans it while you’re gone (and then offers to come and pick you up at midnight). That guy who will always trade shifts with you, even if it makes his own schedule worse. That guy who spends his day off driving me to work and then asking me for my list of things I needed to get done. And if you make a big deal out of any of these things, he gets super uncomfortable because he’s like, ‘What? ANYONE would do it.’ But that’s the thing. NOT ANYONE would do it. But THAT GUY would. I love THAT GUY. Everybody loves THAT GUY.
And I was lucky enough to marry him.
Forty years of Geoffrey is definitely something to celebrate! And that’s exactly what we shall do.
