I posted that and then took off to do the errand I had been going to do when he was getting out of his car and I was about to get in mine: I went to Nordstrom’s and bought him some chocolate truffles (shhh, don’t tell on me yet).

And came home to find out he’d gone to See’s and bought *me* some chocolate truffles and, somewhere else, some Valrhona cocoa for my morning mugs. They were sitting on the table waiting for me when I got home–he’d beaten me back.He beat me to it

I love that man.

(Edited to add up here: I used to tell my husband he didn’t need to do the big-bunch-of-roses-on-Valentine’s thing, I’m not so much a roses person anyway. His reaction was that he was being a good example to his sons of how they ought to treat their future wives.

So I said to him a couple of weeks ago, this will be the first Valentine’s with no kids around; you don’t have to do me the big roses thing.

So he brought me a small roses thing. Knowing I would instantly crack up. And I did.)

Sweet! Both of you.

My hubby did the same thing for me as last year: he ‘adopted’ a rose in my name at the Guadalupe Rose Garden. It has a plaque in front if it – ‘For Rachel, my favorite wife so far’. Romantic fool, he is…

What fun valentines you two are! My dearheart (the professor) walked home from the university toting his red roses, which are sold as a fundraiser by the Agriculture Department. The swim coach’s wife lives on the way home, and she saw him marching by and said that he was “so good!” I like the roses too, but “each day is Valentine’s Day,” and he’s pretty good the rest of the time, too! (that said, all the chocolate sure looks good. I know the professor was just trying to keep me from eating them all, that’s why he didn’t buy them, right!?)
