The past week or so has been filled with surprises - good ones!
Some of the best surprises have involved getting together with friends (a friend texted me on Wednesday to say that she, her sister, and another woman, all of whom I know and enjoy, were going out for margaritas and wanted to invite me to come along, and I went, and the four of us had a wonderful time) or coworkers (five out of six front desk staff members went out last night, and we all had a really good time then, too… no cattiness, just sharing information and stories and laughing), but one of the best surprises has been the following document that my husband typed up and texted to me one line at a time.
It was so sweet to read it, and I'm still so pleased with it that I'm putting it out here to brag. My husband - he is one of the best. :)
A is for AMAZING. You amaze me every day with what you accomplish.

You may vomit now. But it makes me smile that he took the time to think all this up, type it out, and send it. I'm a pretty lucky girl :)
