"C" is for Cupid

I had to work in DC the week of Valentine's Day, so I enlisted some help from Nanna to make sure John knew he was very, very loved while Tully and I were on the east coast.  I wrapped up four gifts for him and left "themed" notes with each one.  Then I put sticky notes with a designated day on it and asked Nanna to stop by the house to put the right one out.  I wish I would have taken photos of the finished products, but this should give you an idea of what I did.

Notes, gift sacks, and a couple of the gifts

Tuesday (Feb 14): Valentine's Day card with a gift certificate for a massage at SCI.
Theme: RELAX - "Enjoy your time and relax while we're gone..."

Wednesday (Feb 15): Lean Production book.
Theme: LEAN - "You can lean on me..."

Thursday (Feb 16): Box of Hot Tamales candy.
Theme: HOT ( parents read this...)

Friday (Feb 17): Rokinon fisheye lens for Canon T2i.
Theme: EYE - "I've got an eye for you..."

I have to admit I was quite proud of myself and couldn't wait to hear from him when he got his gift each evening.  I feel like it's twice as exciting to give a gift as it is to receive one.  Even writing this a month later makes me all happy inside!  All I can hope is that I did so well Valentine's week that John will forgive me for forgetting our anniversary two weeks later.  Oopsie!  Happy three years and counting, sweetie.  I love you!
