My husband just won the
Romantic Husband of the Year award.
I mean, he is GOOD! He actually kidnapped me!
Yesterday was our 24th anniversary. He told me in the morning not to eat lunch, because he would be home shortly after noon and we’d go have a late lunch and spend the afternoon together. Sounded good to me, of course. So I got the children pretty well finished up with school and we took off. We ran a few errands, had a lovely lunch at Applebee’s, roamed around, shopped a little, and then headed home. Then he turned in at the hotel where dd had gotten married, saying we ought to check out their jacuzzi suites. I thought, okay…whatever. And of course, (you already guessed this, didn’t you?) he walked straight to a room and let us in with his key. Inside the door there was a balloon that said Happy Anniversary, and as I walked in, I saw a red rose in a vase, Asti Spumante on ice, the loveliest card I’ve ever seen, and two Cadbury eggs , while a scented candle filled the whole room with the smell of vanilla. (Does this man know me, or what? All my favorite things!)
It was so sweet, but I was still a little confused. After all, I hadn’t packed anything, and it’s just a little inconvenient to not have my contact case and my toothbrush! Then he said he needed to go get something. He came back with a box and a bag full of all our clothes and everything we needed to spend the night. I could not believe that he managed to sneak around and pack it all up before we left, while I was right there in the family room! He said he didn’t know for sure what I needed, so he just got everything of mine out of the medicine cabinet! LOL! And he did a great job–the only thing he forgot was my hairbrush, and I had a comb in my purse, so that was okay.
We warmed our wonderful leftovers from Applebees for supper, enjoyed our wine and cheese and chocolate, and had an absolutely lovely time. I think maybe it was even more fun than our honeymoon partly because it was so totally unexpected.
Of course, the kids were in on the secret, but they never let anything slip. I had absolutely NO CLUE that anything was going on until he pulled out the key.
It was a wonderful time. I felt so pampered, so special, and so loved. Who would have thought that after 24 years, it would just keep getting better?
I am so blessed. Thank you, Lord!
