Cole is my best friend, favorite human (besides the kids) and husband. We got married on the 1st of October 2011 under a gloomy Cape Town sky… it was one of the best days of my life.
Cole is an easy man to fall in love with. I did it in one day… I was only 18-years old when I met him and 22 when we had our first child together. We were so young, and so not ready for all of this – but thanks to his incredible humor, support and unwavering love… we made it work. We are raising two incredible little kids together and every day gets a bit easier.
If our home could speak, it would add that Cole is ridiculously handy – we don’t call him Cole MacGyver for nothing. He is a real manly man, and he is honestly the most unromantic person on this planet (he does try, but his brain just ain’t wired that way). We truly are equals. We split our parenting role 50/50 and I am so grateful to have a partner like him in my life. He changes nappies, cooks, cleans, takes the kids to school and works extremely hard to help provide for our family. I don’t know what I would do without him, he supports me in everything I do. He gets my crazy and reigns it in when it gets a bit much. He is an incredible dad.. he is strong and kind.
Every now and then Cole will write a guest article for Caffeine and Fairydust. He is an incredible writer, but to get him to sit still long enough to write something is a bit of a mission!
I couldn’t imagine my life without him.
