Hey, it’s Anthony aka Hutch, and I’m back with another blog post to celebrate our upcoming second wedding anniversary. HutchStew Turns Two on April 2nd, and these two years of marriage have proven to be some of the best years of my life. Being married has been an adjustment, but at the same time very rewarding. One of the best things about being married is getting to share life with someone, and lucky for me I have learned quite a bit from my wife. Sheena has helped me grow, merely by watching her grow/evolve.

If you’re a regular to the blog, you know our journey hasn’t always been filled with rainbows and butterflies. Our relationship has taken work and a lot of communication, and most of our communication progression can be attributed to Sheena. She is in tune with herself more than anyone I know. She is not only comfortable with expressing her emotions, but also possesses the ability to fully live in/experience them. She has the unique ability to feel what is going on and not hold it in. This is one of the many things I admire about my wife, and I’ve taken notes and tried to emulate.


Another thing I admire about Sheena is her drive. One day about a year ago, Sheena mentioned she wanted to be a blogger. Shortly after, she bought her domain, set up photo shoots and started the blog. I was in shock at how quickly she put her ideas into motion and made it work. She is constantly going to different events, honing her skill-set and creating amazing content. I am so proud of all her accomplishments that it’s difficult to effectively put it into words.

She is one of the most compassionate people on the planet, and this truly inspires me. Her brain is constantly in “how can I help” mode. She is always thinking of a kind act or good deed to do for someone. Half of the things that she does for people she doesn’t tell the public about. Sheena has always been more of a finished product in our relationship, but I like to think she’s more finished than most of us. That’s due to ability to really feel and truly experience things (even the bad).  She is open to working things out and wanting to know the “root” cause. It used drive me crazy, but now I can say that I finally get it. Finding the root cause and then exploring how to fix it has helped our marriage so much!


So, for year two I am thankful for Sheena’s:

  1. Ambition
  2. Kindness
  3. Patience

I’ll be back on the blog soon, Hutch
