the traditional three year gift isn't diamonds, but i'm not about to complain about my new necklace

When it was time for me to enter the real world and get up and go to work each day, one of my least favorite parts was scraping the ice off of my car windows every morning in the winter.

When Matt and I got married and moved to a condo, I mentioned to Matt, several months into winter, that the sun must be stronger at our new place because I hadn't had to scrape ice off my windows at all that winter.

And that's when he said, "That's because I've been scraping them every morning."

Well, wow.  He did that lousy chore for me, every single morning, and NEVER ONCE mentioned it to me for thanks or credit.

Yesterday we celebrated our third wedding anniversary and I am here to report that since March 8, 2014 I have never once scraped ice off my car windows.

For that reason, and a million more, he's a keeper.


   Also, we spent the evening at the police station.  That's a story for another day!

This just brought a smile straight to my face---what a great guy! And so amazing that he's humble enough never to mention that. Sounds like you found yourself a keeper!

How do you leave that last sentence & not tell more. I'll be waiting anxiously for that story.
... & AHHHH - what a sweet husband. Someone who does little things 'just because' -a winner.

It rarely gets cold enough in Florida to have ice on the windshield, but the couple of times it has happened I absolutely hated it. What a sweet husband you have!
