Meet Nicholas

Let's talk about Nick, shall we?

I've been fairly vague about him since we met and it's about time I talk about him a little more.

Fun Nicholas Facts:

1.) He's Cajun. He's from Louisiana, he has a Cajun accent, and his entire family is of French descent.

2.) His family is huge.

3.) They accept me as part of the family and it's awesome. We see them multiple times a month. His dad is also a fantastic cook!

4.) Nick used to be in the Navy. He still works at a Navy hospital.

5.) He's slightly OCD which keeps me on my toes. Sometimes he makes me crazy because he's over the top organized and clean, but usually I just appreciate that he rubs it off on me a little. I tend to be a bit messy and all over the place. I'm getting better thanks to him.

6.) He eats a lot of sausage (probably because he's cajun), but never gets fat. It's truly unfair.

7.) He has really long eye lashes and beautiful honey colored eyes.

8.) He can't stand staying at home for too long. He always has to get out and "do stuff".

9.) He has great taste in music.

10.) He's extremely funny in the nerdiest of ways. He allows me to be the same.

11.) He loves me so much.

12.) I love him so much.

13.) We are not planning on getting married... ever. Though we've discussed having a  "non-wedding".... or something. And eventually, I want a ring. But we haven't gotten to all of that yet. School first.

14.) As of now... we don't want kids.

15.) Obviously we talk about the future a lot. I definitely can see myself with him for forever.


I should also add that he never yells at me, is extremely calm and even tempered, and one of the most patient people I've ever met.

He's also a total hottie.

All in all, he's awesome. And he makes me very happy. And I feel extremely lucky to have him in my life. I was given a second chance at love thanks to him. I couldn't have asked for a greater gift.

That's a beautiful post, Karie. I wasn't getting married with my guy and had no thoughts one way or the other about kids and, well, we all know how that turned out. But I would not have regretted doing it all differently than I did either, and time is something that is meant to be taken.

Sweet that he's Cajun, and O how I love a decent accent, never mind good food. He truly sounds like a keeper. <3 Thanks for sharing! <3

Yay! I am so happy for you!

That made me smile. I've always heard that people who were truly in love once are much more likely to fall in love again after the death of a spouse. You deserve a great, loving relationship, and it sounds like you've found one!

Patience is a wonderful quality in a man you want to keep. Makes everything so much easier. And acceptance from the family -- wow, know what that means to you.

I'm so happy for you both.

Thanks for sharing a bit about Nick. I've always thought Cajuns were hot, but that could just be the French in me ;)

Sounds like a special guy, and he is totes lucky to have you!
