My husband and I have never been real big “shower them with gifts” people. That may come out of necessity as we stick to a pretty tight budget but even in the days before kiddos we were pretty reasonable when it came to presents.
I’m one of those women who when they see a big display of flowers delivered to her office that thinks, “Those better not be for me! That’s way too much money.” I’d rather Michael pick up a bunch of tulips once in a blue moon at the grocery store for $10.
I’ve picked up his favorite candy or will make a special meal. Or maybe we’ll go out to eat somewhere a few days after the actual holiday to celebrate. But a box of chocolates, flowers or jewelry just aren’t my thing.
Honestly, it’s the little things that count. Moments like seeing “I heart U” spelled out in sliced grapes on the cutting board on a random Wednesday mean a whole lot more than waking up to some roses on Feb. 14. And that’s not to take away from those who need or want those roses or chocolate or whatever else on Valentine’s Day. It’s just not my thing.
What are the moments that make you feel extra special or loved?
