I had a rough day at work so I texted Brandon asking if I could have chocolate for dinner. “maybe for desert” he replied. Yes, I gave him heck for placing a word for an arid region of land, but i got the hint. Later, this text message appeared:

Remember this for when you get home
One surprise is hidden
In rather plain sight.
The other must be found
If everything is to be all right

I love surprises so when I got home I noticed these


royal lilies

Lilies are my favorite flower. It may be because my middle name means “lily” or the symbolism of lilies throughout Christian history. I don’t know for certain, but I’m definitely glad my husband remembered that I love them!

But these beauties were NOT my surprise. This was!


"hidden in rather plain sight"

the hidden surprise

"The other must be found" (it was hidden in our pantry)













You know what this says to me? Not only does it say that Brandon loves me, but he also paid attention to me when I said I love surprise, I love lilies, and I love chocolate. I almost cried from joy when I saw that he got me lilies. I was so incredibly happy.

Now, if you please excuse me… Brandon has declared he has “occupied bed” and I must respond. šŸ™‚ Goodnight, interwebs!

About Karen

What's there to say really? I pretend I have two left feet because I hate the attention, but at the same time, i love to make people laugh, even if it's by being a klutz. I am an enigma, even to myself, and I'm full of irrelevant paradigms. I barely even know what I just wrote! View all posts by Karen
