Treasure Tuesday


My treasure today is a Precious Moments figurine from my dear husband. We had only been dating about two months and things were just starting to become deep between us. He told me that he was leaving on a fishing trip with his father and grandfather for a WEEK!! At this point in my life I was living on my own for the first time and Michaels daily visits would brighten my day. Now he was going to be gone for a whole week!! On the day that he would be leaving he stopped by my work and gave me this treasure, knowing that I love Precious Moments and the fact that it is a little guy with all his fishing gear is just what I needed to seal the bond that started between us. He put a lot of thought into this token of love and that is not something that I had been used to. I love him very much and I will always treasure not only this figurine, but also his love for me.

I found you through a comment you left over at Geekwif's place. she is my bestest friend, so of course I needed to come and visit you.

I love the treasure tuesday idea. I will have to do this myself. Your girls are adorable. Maddie, if she is the older one, looks to be just a bit younger than my Sweet Girl.

Give your hubby a kiss for being willing to be "made pretty"... the mark of a great daddy!

What a sweet gesture! I love treasures like that. One of my favorite treasures is a tiny piece of paper my hubby left on my desk when we were engaged. It has a picture of an eye, a heart, and the letter U. Completely cheesy, but I treasure it enough that I've carried it with me in my wallet for the past 13+ years.

Thanks for stopping by my place the other day. I love to see new happy shiny faces around! And I love the name of your blog! Sounds like we're just sitting at a little cafe table having a chat.
