So you know the love languages? I’m pretty sure mine are acts of service and gifts. And if I were to guess I would say my hubby’s are physical touch and words of affirmation. I know for sure his is not gifts because he has stated on many occasions his disdain for the tradition of gifting. But because he is a sweet boy he makes an effort anyways, and this past Christmas he even surprise gifted me for the first time. At this point in our marriage, and with hubby checking our finances on Mint every day, it is all but impossible to hide any purchases from each other. Sure we could pay cash, but it would hurt my heart not to be building miles with my purchases. But over Christmas we agreed for a 2-week period not to look at our transactions. Anyways, I still like surprise gifts (I’m quite easy to please) because they make me feel like a lot of consideration went into them and I just love surprises in general, but after 5 years of marriage hubby and I are at the point where holidays are just awesome excuses to buy stuff or experience things you wouldn’t normally. Which is A-ok with me. Right now I’m about to buy my own Valentine’s Day gift haha. Hubby said for his gift he would like for me to go skiing with him this weekend, which is a big deal for me because I have never done winter sports besides once snowboarding in 4th grade at a place pronounced cocaine mountain or in my early college years having a traumatically mortifying experience tubing. Sigh. I do many things for love.
Besides that, I do a have a couple gifts planned for my hubs. One he picked out himself, the other is a surprise diy gift and just for laughs. But I also created a couple homemade Valentine’s Day cards as you can see. I’m calling them my Pudding Pop card and my Flower Wreath card. Printable pdfs below if you’re interested.
