The small and the sweet

On this day of flowers, candy, and romantic dinners I would like to share with you some of the unsung romantic gestures that I can say really do add to the sweet life that I have. 

1.  He comes home, to us, every single day.  With a cheerful "Hello!"  I can tell he's happy to see us at the end of the day.  

2.  He takes the garbage out, every week.

3.  He is a damn fine cook.

4.  Cleans too!

5.  He is a great dad, loves our son to pieces and would do anything for him.

6.  He is honestly my very best friend and we have always had fun together.

It is wonderful to have romance, flowers and candy to celebrate the love that we have for each other.  The points I mentioned above are the glue that holds things together for the long haul.  Without the consistency of a partner that can be counted upon for anything in any situation, it just doesn't work.  And it goes both ways.  Equal partners however the division of labour is decided.

So this Valentine's Day, for me, is about recognizing what happens every day that makes me feel loved.  Kisses and hugs to my sweetie and to my little bug as well.

  1. Agreed! I've always said (I really have) Love is in the little things. Which is good, because I can't afford the big ones anyways! ;-)
