Meet the Husband

In preparation for John's week of manly crafts, a week devoted to my husband's tinkerings and DIY projects, I thought I'd introduce you to John.


John is an avid outdoor enthusiast. He loves hiking, camping, fishing, and anything else that one can do in outside in nature.  We greatly enjoy camping and tend to go on hikes whenever we need to run away from civilization (which is fairly often).


An accomplished musician, John studied jazz and rock guitar through high school and college and is now getting his master's degree in classical guitar.  When I met him in college he was a full blown rock guitarist and even tried to woo me by inviting me to his rock shows (that is until he realized I really preferred silence to loud music).  Having toured the US, and even internationally, he decided he'd rather settle down and have a family - and boy am I glad!  I still love to watch him perform, even if it is more wedding and formal gigs these days.


He loves tinkering with tools and is the handy man behind the scenes of Turning a House into a Home. Since getting married, I've had to do a lot less leaky facet fixing, door unjamming, picture hanging, and clogged drain unclogging.


Lucky for me he also cooks a mean meal, has recently learned how to clean the bathroom, and always remembers the important dates (you know, like our anniversary and my birthday).


Be sure to tune in next week and see the unveiling of some projects John's been working on!

I must concur with all of the above. You picked a great man and I'm so glad he cut his long hair and settled down with his supermodel wife.

He sounds a lot like Kevin at the lettered cottage blog with the rock and handyman parts. I looked through his posts. How cute. I wish my hubby would blog for me, but he doesn't have a clue how.

Popping over from the blog hop and a new follower! Your husband seems awesome...mine is very handy as well, though it sounds like he requires a *slight* bit more nagging than your husband to get projects done, lol.
