Mr. Romantic


Today is the 6 year anniversary of the day Ty proposed to me. Yesterday, Ty conjured up another production that will be hard to forget. I have been bugging him for a while because of the lack of romantic gestures lately, so around 1pm I receive a bouquet of flowers. The card was sort of lame, but I called him to say thanks anyway. Then around 3pm, the doorbell rang again and there was ANOTHER bouquet of flowers and some candies. This time the card was very thoughtful. Around 5pm, I was in the front yard getting ready to walk with some of my neighbors. We saw a florist's van coming down the street. My neighbors said, "We saw the van at your house earlier. Wonder who's house he's going to now?" Well, the van proceeded to pull into my driveway again for the third time, this time with a BEAUTIFUL bouquet of roses.
When Ty came home from work, he took Colt and put him to bed. Then he mentioned going out to eat dinner, which I was not excited about because that meant we couldn't go eat until after Colt woke up from his nap. I sat down at the computer to do some things and the doorbell rang. Ty had been telling me all day that the Verizon guy was scheduled to come by (that way I'd be home for all the flower deliveries), so I figured it was him at the door. In walks a couple from our church small group (We Love you Abe and Julie!) with a whisk (a reference for Joyce and Lindsey). I was VERY confused and thought Ty had invited them over to go eat dinner with us as a surprise, when they said, "No, we are here to babysit while yall go out." So, Ty and I went out to play putt-putt, go carts, video games and eat burgers. What a thoughtful husband - really using his thoughtful gene. I love you Ty!
Here are some pictures I took of Colt this week in his cute reindeer hat :)

I'm not sure why it stuck of the all the pass the candles I went to, but I still remember yours and the letter about the cow's worth. At the time I remember thinking it was very sweet and you were lucky. Congratulations and I wish you guys many more years of happiness. And Colt is absolutely precious.
