You all know how the age old saying goes, “Live each day like it’s your last.” As much as I would love to take that to mean that I should eat a cheeseburger for every meal, I don’t think that’s the real interpretation. Can you imagine? A cheeseburger topped with an egg for breakfast, another burger served protein style for lunch, and then a big ol’ juicy burger topped with everything for dinner. I would be in heaven. Please tell me heaven serves burgers. If anyone can get a hold of that little boy that went to heaven, would you please ask about the cheeseburgers?
Back to the point. I obviously get side-tracked when dreaming of cheeseburgers. My husband and I were recently discussing how it’s the little things in life that really keep you happy and satisfied. I try to take a few minutes out of every week (okay maybe every other week) to make a little note of love for my husband. The best part is that he returns the favor. Now, I know I won the marriage lottery with this one, but it really makes for a better marriage (easy for me to say, we’re only going on one year – get back to me in seven).
I had to stop at Old Navy to pick up a few things for our vacation (leaving tomorrow!). I knew he wanted these boat shoes the last time he was here (he just couldn’t pull the trigger on the $11.49 sale price – I know, I know. I already told you I won the marriage lottery). So I picked them up with the other things I had to purchase and surprised him with them. Did I mention that when I bought them, they were even cheaper? $9 ladies and gentlemen.
I came home and put together this little “card” to tie into the laces, and left the shoes on the kitchen table for him. He loved the note almost as much as he loved the shoes, which by the way he wore the very next day. I think he could have gotten plenty of use out of that $11.49.
