Tonight I'm up late caught in my thoughts on "life" again. My boyfriend got me flowers the other day -he always does. In the three or so years that I was with my ex, never once did I receive a thoughtful bouquet of flowers. He did once buy me a single rose off a San Francisco street after much kicking and screaming but that was it. My boyfriend now has gotten me (a bouquet) of flowers five or six times since last October. Oh yea, and we've only "officially" been together for a month.
Ok, maybe it's not so much flowers that are important, it's the gesture. It's the thought and time put into things of this nature whether it's getting you your favorite fancy beverage from the upscale coffee shop down the street or picking up the latest issue of Cosmo. These little things here and there are so extremely important. A few days ago, he got me an owl shaped candle and some tiny boxes with owls on them (yes I love owls!) It's these small things that remind me just how lucky I am. This isn't to say that my ex was horrible or anything. He did these "small" things sometimes but never on his own -I always had to ask.
Anyways, I'm beyond thrilled to be with a person who does these "small things" naturally without my nagging/begging/pleading. If you have a guy like this, hang on tight and remember to return the love.
