he has done it. camden has done only what he does best, working extremely hard at work, until they just couldn't help but promote him any longer.
it was tuesday mid afternoon, i was a bit groggy from lack of sleep and constant car rides when i got a phone call from camden. i was a bit preoccupied to hear the slight hint of excitement in his voice. "i did it!" he said, "i got it." it took me a minute to realize what he was trying to tell me, and to comprehend what he was talking about, until suddenly my brain caught up with his words and i understood just what he was saying. "you mean the job?" "you got the job?" "yes i did." he said. there was then a lot of excitement that broke out, while i might ad, i was driving kids in the car who were looking at me like, 'great she has officially lost her marbles'. it was a sight to see i tell you. conversation began about details, and scheduling and of course a few sarcastic ad-ins (cause' what's a conversation without a bit of sarcasm, right?)
one of the things i admire about camden is the dedication and hard work he devotes to anything he sets out to accomplish. i have never seen him do a job putting forth any less effort than 110% even if he isn't particularly excited about what he is doing, it doesn't seem to matter. i wish i could be more like that.
camden has been offered a manager position in women's shoes, a category he knows a lot about. this is quite surprising to most people especially considering he knew nothing about fashion anything when we first started dating.
i remember the first valentine's date camden and i shared together. it was five years ago now and we had dinner reservations at a nicer restaurant. when he showed up to pick me up he was dressed in rugged jeans, hiking shoes, and an oversized dress shirt. it's funny to think now camden is the one giving me fashion advice.
everywhere we go he is pointing out different women's shoes and what brand they are. half the time i have no idea what the brand even is. sometimes i just play along, 'oh yeah, i love those shoes. 'i have been wanting some for quite some time'. he is quite knowledgeable in that subject, quite knowledgeable indeed. i guess it would make sense since he has spent the last three years selling all kinds of ladies just that.
so here is to camden and new beginnings. we are so proud of you, you will be amazing as always.
