Thanks, Sweetie :-)

Chris knows that I love to get presents (what girl doesn’t?), and he knows that these presents don’t have to be big or expensive – just gestures to let me know that he’s thinking of me. This morning, I get up at the leisurely hour of 9:30 (I’m working evenings tonight, so I don’t go in till 3:30pm). I look around the house for Chris, and rather disappointedly realize that he’s not home. I sit at my computer, still in my pajamas, and start checking email.

Chris comes home about 15 minutes later, walks up the stairs, gives me a kiss, and says “I have a present for you, but don’t get too excited about it, okay?” He holds out this white box…

I’m all excited and start to make a fuss, telling him he shouldn’t give me gifts first thing in the morning because I look terrible. He just laughs 🙂 I open it up, and wrapped in blue paper is this interesting-looking, pretty necklace…

Now Chris knows that I usually don’t wear gold, brown, and black jewelry, so I was a little surprised at the choice. Then he told me that I’d once mentioned to him that I liked a necklace that looked “sort of like this one”. A student of his came in to class wearing the above, so he asked where she got it. She told him the name of a store up the Cape, but then told him it was only open during the summer. So what does Chris do? He makes a note on his calendar for mid-May, then calls them up and asks if they could email him some pictures. He then orders the necklace and has them ship it here, 5 1/2 months after he first saw his student wearing it. Isn’t that so sweet?

When he told me the story behind getting the necklace, it reminded me of how lucky I am to be married to my husband. Thank you so much, Sweetie, for always thinking of me and telling me I look pretty, even first thing in the morning 🙂
