And then its final goodnight kisses for my beautiful boys and I head for my pillow.

Someone who will back me and what I am passionate about.
Someone who has the same morals and values that I have.
Someone who is humble and down to earth.
Someone who supports and puts his family first.
Thankfully my husband is all of these things, and more!
