Day 42 - What a Man!

Speechless, I am speechless!  My husband came home this evening while I was giving the babies their evening bath.  We chatted for a few minutes and wished each other Happy Eleven.  Manik and I started dating on May 11th, 2005.  Ever since then the 11th day of each month is always a good day.  We don't do anything huge or crazy but we are a little bit nicer to one another, a little bit more thoughtful and just make the day a good one.  I am not saying that every day isn't a good day but sometimes it is nice to have one day a month that you go a little out of your way to do something thoughtful for your loved one. 

So this evening Manik came home and was just "happy", happy in the way where I could tell he had something up his sleeve.  I was blown away by him, when he slipped the most beautiful ring on my finger! 

Let me back up a little bit...there is a jewelry store in Wichita, KS named Carolyn Sayre Jewelry.  Every time I go to Wichita I stop by and have my rings and earings polished while I check out her bling!  For the past three years there is one ring I try on every time!  It is a very simple band made up of alternating white and canary diamonds.  It is beautiful and I LOVE IT!  I would tell Manik every time I saw it how pretty it was and how much I liked it, but I could never rationalize spending that much money on myself. 

So my wonderful and extremely thoughtful husband decided it was time to get it for me, just cause he loves me.  I am a very lucky girl and am blessed to have such a giving husband.

Thank you Manik, I love you...Happy Eleven!!

XOXO Heidi

p.s. sorry no picture, i couldn't get a picture that did the ring justice.  I will try again tomorrow when the sun is out!

Good job Manik! You get the husband of the month award! I'm sending Erik over for "gift giving" lessons when he gets home. ;)
