A few weeks ago we were in the city and I convinced Lee to take me to anthropologie and west elm before we went to dinner . . . just to look around. And I did just that, look around. I didn't buy one thing. I walked out slightly sad but very proud of myself. Fast forward a couple weeks and Lee surprised me with the 3 amazing pieces I reluctantly left behind at Anthropologie!
First was this little aqua vase:
"For all our wishes that have been fullfilled and the ones still to come."
Anniversaries are Awesome!!!!
But after 7 years of marriage I would have to say that the most important part isn't the BIG gestures, it's not romantic rides in hot air balloons, or being showered with gifts or diamonds, it's all about the small! It's a midday call from the office to say HI, it's getting up in the middle of the night to let the dog outside, it's quietly doing the dishes after dinner, or pulling the pickle out of your burger even though you like pickles but you know your wife loves them more. It's giving up the last cookie and pretending you didn't even want it in the first place. Mother Teresa said "Do small things with great Love." Lee certainly does just that. I don't think he's had the last cookie in at least 7 years ;).
