This is Alex Copeland, my high school sweetheart, my baby’s daddy, my partner in crime.
He loves classical music and punk rock, renaissance art and comic books, new urbanism and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He bikes our girl to school every day and himself to work at the public library. No matter how poor he is, he always gives money to homeless people.
He has never backed down from an inappropriate joke, but he’s a lover — not a fighter. He likes birdwatching and has a tattoo of a donkey on his upper arm. He’s an idealist, a feminist and a humanist. He wears his heart on his sleeve. Once, he supported us on freelance web design gigs for two years so I could get a pretty much useless MFA. He has never called my MFA useless.
He builds bikes, he snowboards, he makes pottery and mosaics. The son of a bitch even juggles!
Plus, look at that grin.
