  1. I love surprises on my birthday, and my husband has gone above and beyond my expectations many times in this area. Two years in particular he planned a weekend getaway for the two of us without giving me any warning. The first event on each weekend agenda was always to purchase enough new clothes (pajamas, undergarments, shoes & swimsuit included) to get me through the entire weekend. Then he would whisk me away to a resort or B&B for 2 days of relaxation and pampering. Thank the Lord that my birthday falls around tax return time :], but thank the Lord most especially for a sweet and wonderful husband!

      How fun! 🙂

  2. Oh my, I sure do identify with what you wrote today. I have many times ( to my shame) despised the fact that my husband does things grander than I would do. I wish I would have learned the lesson in the earlier years of marriage that it is OK to let him be the man and bless me. My tight wad nature always struggles with this. I do recall a time where he said go ahead and get something that was much more money than I thought wise. Well interestingly enough those family photos hang on my wall to this day!! I am grateful that my husband is very generous to me!!

  3. The picture of you both says it all doesn’t it… giving and receiving love! I am also very blessed! We’ve been through hard times but on this side of 10+ years of marriage, we’re feeling the spirit of God’s presence in the middle of us…such peace. ~ Blessings out, Amy

  4. BTW… this has been a LOVELY series! You’re truly creative to have come up with all these posts and their challenges! It’s helping me with quality inspiration for my “list”, too! 😉

      Aw, thanks! 🙂 I’m glad it’s been helpful.

      I have to say, these have been the easiest posts to write. I think I could easily list hundreds of things… but keeping it at 28 is probably best to keep reader interest alive. *laughs*

  5. Ohhh! I so identify! My hubby is a “researcher”. Everything we buy has to be a quality item that is exactly right for our need. I was raised as a “whatever works” gal. So sometimes this trait is a little exasperating for me. But over the years I’ve learned to appreciate it. I know that if he makes the jump to get something, it has to be a pretty awesome thing.
    We don’t have much, but what we do have is guaranteed to work when we need it to! 😉

  6. Oh, my. This is my husband all the way through. My two latest purchases that would never would have been made without him are the canon camera and a gym membership. The “tree house” we are working on is another example, and next week we are sitting down with a Amish cabinet maker to plan out a new kitchen in our house.
