I had a little bit of a hellish week. Between a sick Nora and a huge argument with Jorden and some hard news from a friend and a bunch of little things that built up into something that felt much bigger, I kind of had a meltdown yesterday. On the phone. With Jorden. While he was driving home from work. I accused him of not being supportive of my blog…and broke down crying….and hung up before things could get worse. And then he came home with this:
My Valentine’s Day gift. To be fair, my second Valentine’s Day gift. My first is a sewing machine that he wants me to pick out (yay!!) and the date night we had Tuesday. So this – this was unexpected. And so perfect. Let me give you a run-down of what was in this cute little basket.
First and foremost, a card. A sweet card that had sweet things written inside (Jorden has always been good with cards…) A snippet: “I love you, our life together, and am always grateful to take a deep breath in realizing that we will weave our own path together.” xoxo
Second, a gray rooster pitcher….which I love! And would never have bought for myself, which makes it even better. It fits in perfectly on my kitchen shelf and is the perfect accent to all the red I have going on.
Third, individual little bottles of wine. So cute! I’ve actually never bought these before…but they’re such a good idea! Moscato – mmmmm – perfect for dessert 🙂
And then there’s this red cake stand (which Jorden apparently thought was a giant margarita glass…..!) The best thing about this is he bought it because he thought it would be helpful for blog pictures. First of all, he was right…. and second of all, it’s so sweet that he wanted to get me something to show his support.
Fifth, this great blanket – complete with the clearance sticker you saw in the original picture. Yep, that’s right. Jorden knows I am a diehard clearance shopper…so he bought everything from the clearance racks! I love it! (I love the blanket, too!)
And the basket will be perfect for storing craft supplies in my new (in the works) work space!
Last but not least, check out this giant bag of Twizzlers Bites. Is there anything better? I think not.
All together, it makes pretty much the perfect gift for this gal. But you want to know what’s even better than the gift, itself? Having a husband who is not only knows when support is needed, but knows how to show it in just the right way. That, by far, is the best gift of all.
