Despite his best efforts to talk me out of getting him a gift I was still determined to show my husband some extra special love on our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife.
My master plan was as follows: Step 1. I woke up super early and planted little love notes and instructions throughout the house where I knew he’d see them as soon as I got up. I went a overboard and included a “Thirsty? You make me hot too!” note on the fridge handle, an “open me now” note on the medicine cabinet where his first card was hidden inside, a “Call me at 6a.m. to say you love me” note on his cell phone, and a “Drive safely, but hurry home, someone misses you already!” not on his steering wheel, among others. Step 2. I took my time and wrote heartfelt handwritten notes inside each of the two cards I carefully selected for him. Step 3. Just when he thought I’d done my bit for the day I came home with a “Be Mine” goodie bag filled with cologne, love scratch offs, his all-time favorite cookies, and chocolates.
Despite his usually grouchy attitude toward the evening, he smiled big time all evening, and told me I made his day — which, of course, made mine. Mission complete, I’m a happy wife tonight. (Well I suppose the surprise gift, special dinner, and full-on pampering I received didn’t hurt either!) Here’s to hoping you and yours made each other equally has happy for the holiday. Goodnight everyone!
