Lovely Surprises



Last week hubby and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary apart. He was leading a missions team in Mexico while I stayed here with the kiddos. I really was not expecting anything at all, but to my surprise hubby had other plans. This is how the story goes... Hubby called somewhat frantic saying someone drove by our house and saw our rocking chairs on the porch all knocked over, I was just waking from a much needed nap and went running out thinking someone may have tried to break in, then sitting on our little table was this gorgeous flower arrangement and a box of goodies from one of our favorite bakeries. I cried like a baby as hubby proceeded to explain that he just wanted to make sure I know how special I am to him. I just love surprises!

I hope over the weekend you have a chance to make someone feel special!
