Lovin That Man of Mine!

 

You have to love a man that will do this when the wind is gusting to over 30 mph and the snow is blowing sideways!




A man who listens to you hem and haw about the cost of $6 tulips at the grocery store, and then drives you all around just before a major snow storm because you finally did decide that you really needed some color amidst all of this snow!



A man who then runs in to every grocery store in an 8 mile radius but can't find you tulips, because you hemmed and hawed so much that everyone else had the same idea and already bought them!



A man who drives to not one, but two different floral shops to get you the tulips you want, in the color you want, because the first shop was sold out.  Did I mention it was snowing already when he did this?!



So that you can have 3 beautiful arrangements to liven up your dreary snow blanketed house.



And so that you can look over from your warm and cozy desk chair to see these!



And every time you walk in the kitchen you get to enjoy these.



All while he's back out in this!



Doing more of this!



And when you ask him how much these cost and he lies and tells you $6, when you know they were $20 and he finally admits it, and then says he would have paid double that because they made me happy!

Then you give that man a big hug and a kiss and make him something warm and yummy for dinner, like a big pot of beef stew!


I'm linking up over at Good, True, & Beautiful for Just for the Joy of it!

  9. Wow - you've got so much snow! My kids would love to have more cos in Britain when about half a dozen or so flakes fall they close all the schools! If we had this much snow they would have a few weeks off school for sure!
    What a lovely husband you have! I have a wonderful husband too but I very much doubt if he would treck in the snow to find me flowers! I'm going to have to show him this post so he pulls his socks up!
    Thanks for your lovely comment on my sign - what a lovely thing to say x
