My husband, Tim Geaney.



Our local publication, Wilton Magazine, did a quick ten minute interview with Tim (when Christopher Walken cancelled at the last minute!)... thanks, Chris.
Carolyn Rundle Field did a great job, and I love the portrait by Pam Barkentin- so pensive!
What they couldn't cover in ten minutes was what a great dad and husband he is. He is passionate about gardening and has even started an eco-friendly way to compost horse manure- "The Entre-Manure" blog to come! We will have a booth at Wilton Go Green Festival on May 2nd. In the meantime, check his blog, "The Light Whisperer".
He plays the piano, learning as an adult, and now devotes many hours playing with Acoustic Wilton, which is a group of fabulous musicians on a mission to cure cancer and raise funds for Relay for Life. The next concert is May 14th, an all night vigil at Wilton High School.
He loves wood working and helps me whenever I need power tool abilities for my crafts... I'm limited to the glue gun for good reason!
Did I mention he make the best Mexican food? His Mom, Clarita, was from Sonora.
Thirty years is a long time to be with someone, and I can tell you he never stops surprising me, or making me laugh. A true renaissance man... at times my knight in shining armor.
Keep in mind , however, my favorite saying:
"Behind every great man there is a woman... rolling her eyes!"(Jim Carey)
(The picture at the bottom was taken 30 years ago by Bruce Weber in Barbados, on that fateful trip...)

Congratulations Tim! And thanks to Nancy for sharing. The more I learn about both of you, the more I am in awe! That picture taken in Barbados is what great photographic moments can convey. To be that comfortable, that intimate, and to share such great chemistry with CURLERS IN YOUR HAIR gives me hope that there are men who see us for who we are - and can never get enough. Fantastic!
