Love Is...

There were so many Twitter, Facebook and Blog posts about "if" you actually celebrate Valentine's Day with your partner. I love the idea of flowers, thoughtful written words and a big box of chocolate but do I need those things? No. So snuggling into bed with my husband last night I realized something...

What I need are the daily reminders of what love is to me.

Love is...

My husband staying on the phone (speaker) with me to make sure I got home okay when our car was acting up. (I was sweating bullets! He made me feel safer.)

Love is...

My husband taking out our one trash can and our several recycling bins. (We have a long driveway.)

Love is...

My husband cooking an amazing dinner with my taste buds in mind. (I think he knows my taste buds better than I do because he has introduced me to so many wonderful food and spice combinations.)

Love is...

My husband scooping me up when he gets home from work to crack my back. (I can't tell you how much this releases the stress of the day for me.)

Love is...

My husband pulling the shower curtain back when he gets out of the shower. (I know, I have my issues but I can't stand when the shower curtain is open.)

Love is...

My husband putting his dirty clothes in the hamper. (I'm not saying this happens a lot but when it does...SWOON!)

Love is...

My husband telling me it is okay to put my deathly cold hands and feet on him to warm them up. (Note to self: make a doctor's appointment and see if there is some kind of blood circulation problem going on.)

Love is...

My husband on his iPad after a long day at work, reading my blog and either laughing out loud or telling me how much he loved it. (Because this blog was started at his push and still six months into it...he still gives it his full support.)



What is one of your reminders of what love is from your spouse?

Awww, that's so sweet! Especially that he pushed you w the blog... (and not only cuz Boyfriend did the same to me...)

Awww. This was such a sweet post about the love between you and your husband. I'm sure he'll enjoy this post!

I love this..sweet reminders of the day to day love!

Great post- I am sure he will love reading it. We didn't celebrate Valentine's Day- it is just too much pressure. He left me note yesterday morning telling me Happy Valentines Day and he loves me and texted me in the middle of the day with an "I love you". I made him some heart-shaped sugar cookies I saw on a blog and decorated them to look like lacy bras and thongs. He loved them.

Awww--so sweet! I had to laugh about the deathly cold hands/feet--I do the same thing to warm them up, since my hubs is always a furnace.

Love your blog! Will definitely be a regular reader.

Yeah, why are we always so cold and no matter what they are as hot as can be? I definitely try and steal body heat.

Love this! Your hubby sounds amazing! It's great that he still supports your blog even after all that time. And the shower curtain thing is legit! :)

Awesome! My husband always hangs up my towel after a shower. And I have the SAME shower curtain thing!!! :)

Love it! I love when Sky does things around the house without me asking, or the very rare times that he sees me doing something and ends up finishing it for me.

Mine? Yesterday my husband tells me that he's taking me to pick out my Valentine's Day present.

"What are you buying me?"

"You said you wanted a pair of comfy flannel pj's. We're going to find you some!"

Sweet. A man who loves me in flannel as much as silk :-)

I loved this post- love is about the small things every day for us too. I love the shower curtain thing. My husband lets me sleep in when I need to on the weekend and makes breakfast for everyone- love him!

So true. It isn't all about Valentine's Day - it's the things we do every day that show how much we love someone.
I love your post.

Mine? Love is my husband offering to bring home dinner on days when he knows the kids have been giving me a go of it.

Oh, I love the back crack!

I completely love that he lets you put your cold hands and feet on him. That is awesome!

Perfect post! Taking out the trash is a beautiful thing. Tonight my husband cleaned up the flood from our overflowing sink--true love. :)

True love is all the simple things isn't it? He's a keeper!

I love this! It really is the little, every day things that add up to big love! I especially love the last three. The one about dirty clothes made me laugh. :) And good on him for being so supportive of your blog! My husband is the same and I am so grateful. :)

This is really sweet! I feel grateful George reads my blog too. It's such a big part of my life, and since I spew my feelings in it, it's also sparked several dinner conversations.
