    Cloud 9 This is a big deal

    Advertisements
    Okay, so my husband isn't exactly the romantic type. He's not NOT the romantic type either, but he has sent me flowers once during our whole relationship and that was because he was in Iraq and couldn't really do anything else. I've always told him how much I'd love to get flowers from him, and he'd always say "I'm just not a flower guy, what's the point the die anyways, I can't get you them now because you asked for them so it wont mean anything." He has never given me a card, because as he says he "sucks with words". The gifts he gives me are great, though, like clothes and electronics and jewelry.

    I didn't expect much this Valentine's Day because last week he told me what he was going to get me, to make sure I'd like it/want it. He wanted to get me an eReader but didn't know which one I'd prefer, so he let me pick it out and I chose a Nook. He ordered it last Thursday so I knew it would be late, but no big deal. Yesterday he tells me not to look at the bank account info online, so I'm like oooo yayy I'm getting something else!

    Sooo today he keeps texting me, asking if I got anything yet. Finally, the first knock...My Nook and expensive candies, chocolate covered cherries! 5 mins later, a florist with a beautiful arrangement. I sign, and he tells me there's ANOTHER ONE he has to go get. So now I have two beautiful arrangements, yummy candies, and a Nook. He called and said it would have been too predictable to send them on Monday, so he elected to send them late. We're going on our V-Day dinner date on Friday

    What a sweet thought And the messages on the cards are so good!

    "The purpose of life is not to simply be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
    - Ralph Waldo Emerson
