"Shouldn't we hold out for the person who doesn't just tolerate our little quirks but actually kinda likes them?” - How I Met Your Mother⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And, yes. You absolutely should. 💜🌴
This year, I've had more people ask, "What did he think when you told him you were going to go bald?"
1. His opinion never factored in to my decision to go bald.
2. But, since you asked, he was 100% completely on board.
I think people want to hear that he was against it. That there was some form of 'this girl's out of her mind!' or 'I can't marry a girl with no hair!' -- I assure you, that was NEVER the case.
In 2012, before we even started dating, I told my best friend - the man I'd some day marry - about my promise to go bald, and he said, "You're going to rock that!"
He's been there every step of the way since, and what many don't see is that he's the 'secret' to my fundraising success. Behind the scenes he's emailing and calling venues to hold fundraisers - reaching out to folks to join our team - organizing logistics - keeping me on track because the world swirls around me as we march towards Shave Day - and just ensuring I eat a proper dinner and go to sleep at a reasonable hour. (Although, yes, we debate on what a 'reasonable' hour is.) 😂
We're a team. Perfectly complete on our own, but an unbeatable force in fighting kid's cancer when our powers combine.
So, yeah. WAIT FOR THAT.
We waited 7 years to figure it out.
Another 5 to get married.
I never waited for anyone or anything -- until him.
And once we got there, I realized I would've waited twice as long -- just so long as it was always him at the end of the day. Help us fight kid's cancer - DONATE NOW.
