Love Grows...


It seems like every time I have a really long day of work or have been working a ton that week, I come home and Kip has done something really sweet for me. In the past he has done all of the deep cleaning of the house, dusting, cleaning the bathrooms, vacuuming, mopping, all of it for me. He even does the laundry. I can not express how much it makes my day to come home to a clean smelly good home! Especially when I did not even ask it of him at all.
On Saturday I had another long shift at work and my wonderful husband had something sweet up his sleeve once again. I have been telling him that I want more color in our front planter. SO what does he do? While I am at work he goes down to Home Depot and picks out all of the colors of plants I have been saying I want in the front planter and plants them for me. I then get a text message from him at work telling me that he has a surprise for me when I get home. HE WAS SO EXCITED FOR ME TO SEE THEM! It was so cute!
So I wanted to share my husbands sweet act of kindness with you guys. Here are my beautiful new plants in my front planter. I love them all!



I am so grateful that I can watch these plants grow in my front yard for the many years ahead. Each time I look at them I will be able to remember how wonderful my husband is to me and how blessed I am to have him in my life. He truly is amazing!
