So, as you know, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. According to all the commercials as well as the pink and red decorations in every store you go to, it’s a day to tell your significant other that you love them.
As if you’ve somehow forgotten throughout the rest of the year.
As if you’re incapable of saying “I love you” all the other days of the year.
Yeah, I have a bit of a grumble when it comes to Valentine’s Day–and don’t get me started on Hallmark’s baby, Sweetest’s Day. *eye roll*
Anyway, back to love and affection. Sorry card and chocolate companies, but my husband and I show and tell our love through the year and sometimes in dorky, goofy ways.
Case in point: yesterday, I bought my man a new body wash scent he’d been hinting about that he liked. Apparently, Old Spice has just released a new “Wild” line depicting “sexy” animals: wolves, hawks, foxes, etc. So, when I saw one at Walmart yesterday, I got it for him. You’d have thought I brought home the moon he was so excited lol
And just last weekend, my hubby cleaned the bathrooms for me. I hate that job. The shower stall is a trial to clean and impossible to rinse without getting yourself soaked. That little act completely made him the most awesome of all heroes.
Those are just two examples. Sometimes he’ll load the dishwasher for me or unload the dryer without being asked or bring me home an interesting ball point pen from a conference he thinks I’ll like. Sometimes I’ll cook his favorite meal… even though we just had the same dinner the week before. He’ll watch chick flicks with me without complaint sometimes. I bite the bullet and play Halo with him every once in a while–even though I die 10 seconds into the game LOL
Love doesn’t mean buying flowers or candy on a specific day. Love means having fun with your very favorite person and doing the little things because you know it’ll make them smile.
Do you have a little “love moment” that makes you chuckle? Feel free to share!
