Sometimes it's just the little things

We recently celebrated an anniversary. Enjoying a meal at our favorite restaurant, spending the day together and of course expressing love for one another by exchanging cards.  The card I got was of course a nice one and it ended like this.


I find these kinds of reminders lovingly potent. I never tire of them and she never seems to stop reminding me of the special relationship we have.

I'm not going heavy with a soul searching post. Rather, I had a few minutes and wanted to share a moment from our day.

Happy New Years to all!

I'm Hers

  1. Looks like there is a lot going on there. There are some key elements that put things where they are now; but did I read the word 'everything'? That's a lot. Couple that with the last line and it appears that it is a pretty good little thing happening.
    After the initial getting where you are going stage, things are just a lot more fun. It is seeing parts of each other you just didn't notice before and then sharing them.
    New Years Day found us traveling to see my parents with a dog tired wife that just didn't feel like driving anywhere, so it was my turn. I stayed focused on the road as the days were long for me as well. After a few miles, though, I did a little double take in her direction because something was just...different. Well all it was, was she did something different with a curling iron and pulling her hair back. It gave her an uncanny resemblance to Rosamund Pike/Jane Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Never noticed that before; but then, why would I? I never had seen the movie. That is until things changed for us a few years ago. Since then I've watched the whole thing at least twice with her, as it is one of her favorite movies. And to think I used to joke with my boys by warning them to stay away from any movies with characters named Darcy in them. JT
    (she looks nothing like the Gone Girl character)

    1. Sorry IH, I need to apologize for using such an obscure example that would mean little or nothing to anyone else but Abby and myself. Maybe that's the point; just wanted to show you I do understand the value of the little things that are shared between two people in our relationships.
      Wishing you a happy anniversary and a blessed New Year! JT

    2. JT, i'm so glad you wrote back to clarify what you meant because I just didn't know how to answer your initial comment. LOL I kept saying to myself "now where is he going with this?" And thought it best that I just let it lie rather than say something when I was not totally understanding your intent. In any event, thanks again for writing and for being a part of the blog. I do appreciate it and appreciate you.

  5. The little things are awesome to be sure. Sometimes life gets so busy and hectic, rote. I waver, lose touch with the sub inside, needing acknowledgement of who we are. Usually she sees it, throws me a "sub biscuit" and I'm merrily on the path again.

    That was truly a simple but everything kind of anniversary card. Thanks for sharing.

    (Now we know what Mistress Katie's hand writing looks like. It's all coming together.....!)
