the lucky one

Saturday morning I woke up to lots of puppy kisses and husband cuddles. 

Happy birthday to me!

As I got out of bed, I saw a red rose sitting on my nightstand with a little note.

From on my toothpaste to in my bowl of blueberries, I found handwritten notes from Bryan everywhere. 


The note that surprised me the most was the one that was on the ottoman at the foot of our bed. You see, Bryan and I do not give each other birthday gifts. But this note implied there was a gift inside, and I was puzzled.


I opened the ottoman to find a card and the most perfectly wrapped box.



Next thing you know I'm crying happy tears, but at the same time saying "this is too much... too much." Bryan explained to me all of the reasons why I deserve this amazing present - one that I will be rocking when I'm 80, God willing!


Oh look, it came with a puppy!


While pipe dreaming, I always said that I wanted a Speedy 35, but after seriously thinking about it, that size is entirely impractical and too gaudy for my taste. But the Speedy 30? Pure perfection!

Knowing the reasons why Bryan gifted it to me, along with the touching words he wrote in my card and the little notes he left everywhere, makes me fall in love with him all over again... He is such a sentimental, thoughtful and appreciative man.


He thinks he's the lucky one, but I know that I am!
