Valentine's day morning
Me: "Uh, happy Valentine's day."
Hubby: "Oh, yeah. Happy Valentine's day. Hope you have a good day."
Me: "Thanks. You too."
No card. No gift. Nada, nothing, zilch. I was the first to say it. I reminded him about the day. And I am the one who doesn't even like this so-called holiday!
Valentine's day . . . a few hours later
I received a sweet email at work. And a phone call at lunch. And a text on my way to pick up the girls asking if I wanted to order Chinese take-out that he would pick up on the way home. It's the little things that matter.
Valentine's day evening
Hubby: "I want to give the girls their Valentine's day gifts."
Scrounging in a bag, he finally pulled out two small white boxes.
Hubby: "One for M. and one for P.! Go show Momma!"
Each girl received a Pandora charm to add to my bracelet. A pink one and a purple one. One day the bracelet will belong to them.
Hubby: "I didn't go to Sports Authority last night."
Me: "Really? You need to read my blog post that I wrote last night." I said laughing in delight that I was surprised even though I really wasn't surprised.
The romantic gestures (almost) all day were all part of his master plan. I'll continue to let him enjoy his day to be romantic. He's a keeper, that's for sure!
