I Know a Guy

Who brings home six new baby chicks because a girl calls him up on the phone and tells him that they’re 25% off and they need a home and they happen to have a home and the chicks will start giving them eggs by December.


Who makes and hangs swings for his kids.


Who designs and builds a retaining wall garden, with the help of his dad, for a girl’s Mother’s Day gift.


{All of that green madness to the left is lettuce, peas, spinach, broccoli and potatoes.}


Who hauls and rakes like five yards of good garden soil.


Who gets a baby-sitter and takes a girl to a local garden show and lets her pick out as many pepper {10} and tomato {21} plants as she wants and walks around carrying all of it cause they didn’t know that they should bring a wagon or something.

Who goes garage sale-ing.

Who watches So You Think You Can Dance and any other singing/dancing movie that ever comes out.

Who buys a girl Downton Abbey for Valentine’s Day.

Who washes the dinner dishes every night, faithfully.

Who said his next project he would build a clothes line for this girl.

Who never complains when he comes home at 5pm and is told that people are coming over for dinner at 5:30pm.

Who makes artisan bread.

Who is budgeting the finances so the girl can buy honey bees next year.

Who unloads the dishwasher and washes the dishes in the morning while the girl makes breakfast and packs lunches.

Who said they could cut down two Christmas trees this year.

Who sets the sun.

I hope all of my girls find someone just like him.



  1. Wow--what a guy! I think I may send this along to Van--he does some of those things, but I really need to sell him on the chicks and bees which are my two big dreams currently. :)

  2. You didn't warn me I'd need a tissue! gotta love that boy. :)

  3. Love it!!!! What a good man!!!
    I love the way your garden looks, it is beautiful!

  4. dang! you sure are a lucky girl. Love your garden! I might have to steal some inspiration.
