Love post

So, if I were on the ball, I would post a picture of the BEAUTIFUL vase of roses Don gave me this week. So pretty! And even better (more fun), he scattered the roses all over our 1st floor so I had to go on a hunt for them. Sis found the first one, so he told her THAT rose was for her! She even made me get a bud vase just for hers... she didn't want it with mine!

I love grand gestures of love like that. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy. And probably even more so because I know that Don doesn't naturally love me through gifts. But he knows I love them... so he does it. I feel loved.

But you know what I appreciate just as much?

Those everyday gestures of love.

Last weekend was our 20th class reunion. No, I'm not going to talk about how old that made me feel... or that I was a tiny bit nervous that I would revert back to my "old" shy self... I'll post pictures and talk more about the reunion another time. But what I WILL mention is that I bought a new dress, shoes and jewelry for the event. What a surprise, right?

Well, we were on our way when I realized I forgot to put on deodorant... YUK! So I mentioned in passing to Don on the way there that I felt great except for that small fact. So, 4 conversations later, Don mentioned that he was starving already and didn't know if he could wait until dinner to eat something. Then he stopped at a gas station and went in while I waited in the car. I honestly thought he was buying a protein bar. Guess what he came out with instead? DEODORANT!

He wanted to make sure my night was perfect!

Now THAT is love I can appreciate! But I love the roses, too!
