A♥ and I are celebrating another anniversary today. Yes, it’s a REAL anniversary, not one of my many made-up ones, heehee. On anniversaries or any special occasion, I never really ask for gifts from A♥ ; he just does it on his own accord. I am much too grateful for him already to keep asking for material things. If A♥ is generous and thoughtful, I have nothing to do with it- it’s all him and him alone. So when people say I am lucky to be blessed with his love, I quickly answer “Don’t I know it!”
He has always loved to surprise me. Even when we were just boyfriend-girlfriend, he would devise ways to make gift-giving an occasion all by itself. There was none of the simple handing over of gifts; there always had to be the element of surprise in it. I think he just finds my gawking and gaping reactions funny. Weird, right?
Sometimes, however, his attempts at devious surprise-planning backfires, like when the air cargo delivery service called the house a little more than a week ago to inform us that A♥’s boxes had arrived.
Boxes? What boxes? How many? The nosey mama had to have her answers then and there so poor A♥ fessed up grudgingly. He would not, however, reveal the contents of the box to me, even under pain of “torture” (a lot of poking and tickling). There was the “code of silence” to be lived up to, he said.
“You REALLY want to know what’s in the boxes, honey? Then YOU have to open them, ” he dared me.
I took the dare. But boy, was I in for the suprise of my life! A♥ got me again!
See the happy smile on my face?
The smile got even bigger when these Tuxedo Triplet Babies came out of the small box. I love these charcoal cat babies!
Wait, there’s another one? What could be in it?

Thank you soooo much! I feel so spoiled and loved always.
