Blanche Devereaux from The Golden Girls thinks Valentine's Day is the most romantic day of the year. I couldn't agree more.
Last Thursday Steve showed up to my work with the kids. They brought me a rose, chocolate covered pretzels and they took me to lunch. I totally thought this was my Valentine's Day gift and I was beyond thrilled.
Steve left for work on Sunday and I thought we would exchange a couple "Happy Valentine's Day" lines over the phone on Monday, and that would be that.
Well, imagine my surprise when a delivery man walked into the office, announced my name and handed me these:
The card read "beautiful flowers for a beautiful Mommy. Love, Steve, Ben and CC"
I was beyond thrilled. Lilies are my absolute favorite flower, and I can't wait until they all open...they will be gorgeous.
Everyone says flowers are Valentine's Day are cliche. I don't. I think they are wonderful. I was totally NOT expecting these, and getting them made them all the more special.
Little touches like this keep the spark alive. Having a husband that travels so much isn't easy, but after having a rough day at work I was able to look at these on our dining room table and smile. That means a lot!
