Quality Friday: Love Is...

Love is...leaving work early to prepare a dinner for your wife since she wrote on the monthly menu that you're cooking dinner on Valentines. Love is...actually finding recipes and ideas that you know your picky wife will enjoy. Love is...stopping at the store and picking up a special drink you know she'd enjoy. Love is...understanding that even the best laid plans must accomodate non-sleepy little ones (H) and phone calls (T and M) and messes to clean up off the couch. Love is...including her favorite part, dessert. Love is...cleaning up the entire kitchen afterwards. Love is...playing an annoying word game with her because she likes it and it makes her laugh and then sitting through a horrendous chick television show when you want nothing more than just to head to bed. Love is...going to work late on Fridays so your wife can go to Pilates with your ex-wife. And love is...still smiling, still loving and being so happy by making your wife happy.

There was nothing instant about these potatos. Yum.
Steak, steamed broccoli, homemade mashed potatoes and that special drink he knew I'd enjoy but wouldn't typically buy.
Dessert.
Bananagrams. So fun.
It sure is and I couldn't be happier with where my home is.

Happy Quality Friday.

I love you J!

Happy Quality Friday! What sweet gestures on J's part. And how funny that our dinners were almost identical last night! So grateful for your loving marriage.

This sounded just like a perfect way to spend the L-O-V-E holiday!
Kudos to J for knowing exactly how to do it up made-to-order for his treasured wife.

You have a sweetie for a husband.

And? The monthly menu thing? Wow. Most days at 5:30 I open the fridge, sigh, and start improvising.

I bought that EXACT same valentine for my husband this year. It sums up everything very nicely, doesn't it?
