Barron of Blog Wife, Kids, and the Pursuit of Happiness


My Incredible Wife

I thought I loved my wife when we first met; we were careless and free at Indiana University. After we dated and finally married I was sure my love for her had reached it's pinnacle. However the arrival of our first child, Libby, brought a whole new level of love and respect for Shannon. We were a real family; a married couple with a kid. How could I fill my life with more?

And then along came Cooper, and with him a host of new and familiar things to balance and re-balance in our busy lives. Shannon has taken the transition in stride, and I find myself falling head over heels in love with her all over again.

There have been nights when I have tried to do what she does for just a couple hours; I am exhausted at the end. Shannon is an incredible mother, wife, and friend. I am extremely lucky and grateful that she is my partner on this wonderful journey.
