You are far and away better than the husband I could have ever imagined….

Our one year anniversary is coming soon. It’s not until November 11th, but since we have a wedding to attend on November 10th, we decided to celebrate by taking a weekend trip alone somewhere early. That’s going to happen on September 28th. We will be heading to Crystal Lake to spend the weekend in a cottage alone.

Last week, I told Sweetlips that I did not want to exchange gifts for anniversary, that I would much prefer exchanging letters. We wrote each other letters when we were doing our pre-cana for our wedding and it touched me so deeply.

“Okay, that works for me but I need a little more then a letter from you.”

Of course, I assume he’s being a perv……. “Oh really, I already planned on that.”

“No, I want a list from you. A list of random things that you would like done for you so that I can pick from it when I want. You do nice things for me all the time and I want to make sure you are as happy with me as I am with you.”

Wow. Who says that? My husband that’s who.

And I’ve already started the list, although it’s not complete:

1. Let me sleep in until 12pm on a Sunday and then bring me lunch in bed.

2. Make me homemade chocolate chip cookies.

3. Go for a walk with me after it’s dark out, because that’s my favorite time of day to walk but I’m too scared.

4. Make me homemade chocolate chip cookies.

5. Watch a Lifetime movie with me even if it’s cheesy, we can make fun of it together.

6. Make me homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Like I said, that’s all I have so far.

I’m so lucky.
