Quite often readers ask me what my husband is like. My answer is always the same --If you'd like to know what my hubs is like, look to my heroes. I put a little bit of hubs, aka The Silverback, into all of my heroes.
In Justin, I placed his protectiveness. My husband would do anything to protect me, even take a bullet for me.
In Noah I placed his patience. My husband is calm and quiet when needed, listens and doesn't judge. He has broad shoulders and can handle the 'tough stuff'.
In Dominic I placed his honesty. Don't ask Dom (or hubs) a question you don't want the answer to, because he's going to give you the truth. Neither man has tolerance for BS or lies.
And in Thomas Sr...well, Thomas is older, built, and tends to scare people who don't know him -- as does my husband. But the irony of people being a bit uneasy around the big guy is: he's a teddy bear inside. Squishy, with a heart as big as his muscles.
I'll probably always place pieces of my husband into my heroes. I mean, he's my real life hero, right?
