Valentine's Gifts

My sweet DH knows how to make me feel special everyday. He encourages my desire to learn new skills, buys all the supplies for my hobbies, takes time to listen to whatever is on my mind, and gives me a shoulder to cry on when I need one. So I really don't need or expect anything from him on "that day" when some men have to scramble to buy an expensive gift to try to prove they love their wife. And yet he still takes the time to give me something so I won't feel neglected.

This year he surprised me with two gifts and they each touched my heart in a special way. First he gave me a hand crafted bracelet.
It's hard to see due to the reflection but he engraved the GPS coordinates of our first date into the stainless steel. I LOVE IT! He gave it to me a few days before Valentine's Day because he was scheduled to be out of town on the actual day. 

But then his schedule changed and he found out he would be arriving home on Valentine's evening. Not wanting to come in the door empty handed, he stopped at a grocery store and hand crafted a bouquet to bring me.
You might think it's odd to be thrilled with radish roses nestled in kale and broccoli. But my DH knows I'm trying to get healthier. And when he handed them to me, he said, "I want you to live for a long, long time." Now I ask you, "Can you get any more romantic than that?"


  1. I find it's the well thought out gifts that mean the most to me. Your bracelet and bouquet are great gifts.

    1. Yes, time is worth more than money. He surely spent a lot of it planning and creating!

  2. What a thoughtful gift. I told my husband I did not want candy. So what did he do? He gave me candy. Ugh.


Tell me what you think, what you know, what you want to know. I love your comments! I read them all and will try to answer any questions.
