My Sweet Valentine!

Okay, so my husband is really sweet. He always has been. He does things unexpectedly that really take me aback. We've been married 3 and 1/2 years and together for 4 and 1/2 years. Our first Valentines together, we were engaged and he sent me on this great scavenger hunt that ended at my parents house with a great pair of white gold hoop earrings, that I still wear everyday--that was 4 years ago! Our first Christmas together, we were also engaged and he got me this sweet leather jacket I had been eyeing---a great gift in itself, but not what I tell the story for. When I opened it on the top of the box was taped a beautiful poem written by my sweet man. As if that wasn't enough....I got the coat out, put in on for modeling, slid my hands inside the pockets and in each pocket was a small piece of paper, each with another poem he'd written for me! He's does sweet and romantic things just often enough to surprise me and not so often that I get too used to it! lol. You can see what he did last year here.

So, since I never expect these things, he surprised me good on Thursday. I got up just like any other day to get ready to go to work. BJ is usually gone by the time I get in the shower, as he was this morning. I walked into the bathroom and noticed that the shower curtain was closed, and it usually is not. I really didn't think much of it and just went on with my routine. I was in the shower, standing under the water thinking about how much I did NOT want to go to work, how tired I was, etc... I was facing the water and out of the corner of my eye I saw something red. Jordan has a tub of those bath-time letters and numbers that stick to the shower wall. She plays with a handful of them and the rest stay in the bucket in the cabinet. Well, so I noticed this redness out of the corner of my eye.

So I turn and look over and I see this:



Isn't that just the SWEETEST thing you've ever seen?!!? Okay, well, it worked for me, I'm easy to please! :-) It literally made me smile from ear to ear and I just made my whole day so much better and happier!!

He also came home with flowers and a card to boot!

Thanks Honey, I love you so much more than you'll ever know!!!

Precious!! Evan needs to take some lessons from BJ!!! :) I'll give him credit for this year, though...he took me to get cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory when I got home from tutoring on Thursday night. He also made a card and wrote a poem in it for our anniversary that was Tuesday!! He's learning!!! ;)

Hey Brandy! I think I am going to wait to get a new blog design until I know what I am having (April 10th) so I can do "boyish" or "girlish" colors. Thank you and I will be in touch.
