Mr. R. brought these home to me the other day. It wasn’t my birthday or one of our anniversaries (we celebrate at least three: the day we ‘met’ online, our first wedding, and our second wedding–long story for another post), and it wasn’t Christmas. He gave them to me “just because.”
I think one way to ‘keep it fresh’ is to prioritize each other. It’s been harder for the last six months due to our tightened budget, we haven’t had Date Night as often as I’d like, but still we find creative ways to remind each other, and ourselves, how blessed we are to have found the other half that makes us whole.
Mr. R. has a flower guy who sells flowers from a truck next to a gas station in town. His flowers are so much more beautiful than you’d get other places. He actually supplied the white and purple hydrangeas for our second (formal, if you will) wedding.
From time to time, Mr. R. stops by Antonio’s truck to pick out a bouquet. It’s reason #12 that I love him so much.
