My husband and I are a little rebellious when it comes to Valentine’s Day. Shouldn’t we show our love every day of the year? Do we really need to spend a lot of money on February 14 to say, “I love you”?
Last year for Valentine’s Day, I got new potholders and Matt got new work gloves. It was our special way of saying, “I heart you. Will you be mine? Oh wait, you already are mine. Here let me give you a little something you really need.”
This year, I really didn’t expect anything at all. There was nothing either of us needed, Matt was working all weekend…I thought we’d have our special Peach Cobbler breakfast and that would be the end of it.
Imagine my surprise Sunday morning when I stumbled out of bed to grab the church clothes I’d laid out the night before…and there on top of my shirt was this:
How fun is that? Matt found it a few weeks ago on clearance (at a shop downtown where he does snow removal service) and thought it was perfect. I’m not sure how well you know me, but those words? They describe me pretty accurately. Wild and wacky? Yeah…that’s me the majority of the time. Wonderful? Well…thankfully at least my husband thinks so. (I can also be rather dull and dorky…but thankfully those particular ornaments were sold out.)
I got a big kick out of my surprise gift…and it cracks me up every time I look at it. I love it that Matt was sweet enough to get me such a fun gift and surprise me with it! And I’m really grateful that even though I’m totally wacky, he chose me anyway.
