Out of the blue, while we were watching television, he presented me with a big box. It wasn't even Valentine's Day.
I thought maybe a customer gave it to him.
Or that he got bonus points to redeem for something free.
But no, he bought it for me. he said, "Honey, I hope that I am everything you will ever need in your life." I said, "babe, if that were the case I wouldn't need God or shopping."
I guess he’s tired of seeing me in Ben’s old flannel robe when I get out of the shower.
But he remembered my love language,
And he surprised me.
And that’s just the best. I wrapped up in that robe and wore it straight into bed over my flannel pajamas that night and I loved it and I loved him.
Last night, I personalized that robe with an expression of love. With a leftover knitted heart class sample. He thought it was cute.
This morning, I was texting my husband, my kids, and texting Lori...we were all chatting about Valentine's Day... thoughts of love, romantic gifts (or lack thereof) and how we were spending our days.
Me to JR:
You better go put a deposit on that serger so I can tell everyone what a wonderful husband I have because he bought me a serger for Valentines Day!
One of my favorite Valentine's memories of all was the year JR woke up early and drew a Valentine in the fresh snow... It didn't cost a single penny, but is showed he cared and was one of the sweetest things I've seen. Future male generations should follow suit and learn from this example so they are a role model to their sons on how to treat a lady! :) :) :) happy valentines day!
Me to Katie:
He is. Sometimes i think I need more and you remind me that anything he would buy doesnt last forever but his love for us will always be love
Not that i still wouldn't mind a suprise michael kors chronograph two tone watch.....
Me to Lori:
I just texted kate back to thank her for the reminder that his love for us is forever but candy and flowers are so temporary.
Me again to Lori:
Except a serger. A serger is forever.
Oh yes sergers are forever. I read that on a Hallmark card.
Happy Valentine's Day!
