It's the little things

You know you love someone when they make all the ordinary moments feel extraordinary.
When doing absolutely nothing feels like everything.
—  Katie Kacvinsky, First Comes Love

I am always so amazed at the little ways by which Timmy shows his love for me. My recent visit was full of "little things" he did for me that made me oh so happy. They might seem like nothings but to me, they're everything.

My first night visiting, he surprised me with a "chick flick" when he got home from work. It was actually good and, in my [crybaby] opinion, a bit of a tearjerker :')

He also downloaded Army Wives for me and laid next to me to watch it, despite thinking the show is ridiculous and despite me saying I could watch it while he was at work. (BTW I've got to admit I really miss the old cast and think the new cast is "cheesy" ... Sadly, I don't know if I'll be watching for much longer.)

He ran into the supermarket for some sauce for a BBQ we had for my family on their last day in Hawaii and came out with a favorite drink of mine (the Starbucks), which I did not even think to ask him for, to jumpstart the day.

And my favorite was being woken up when he got home from work to being asked if I wanted these or a pint of Haagen Daas chocolate ice cream. I'd been wanting ice cream all day so I was ecstatic to finally satisfy my craving.

I guess when you're "dating" your soul mate, a lot of things don't even have to be said because they know you so well. I am always so grateful for this from Timmy. I am grateful for his thoughtfulness and desire to make me happy. Nothing he does goes unnoticed. I am most certainly keepin' him :)
