heroes do exist in real life

So usually I wouldn't have anything to post on Valentine's Day (as we don't celebrate it in my house thanks to my wonderful hubby who doesn't believe in the "holiday" lol). But this year has been different and I have to say I've been all smiles since waking up at 5am this morning :)

Lindo ESCORTED me to work this morning. And for those of you who don't know, it takes me about an hour and a half to get to work...and I have to ride the train. Which is SUPER packed in the morning for rush hour. Another secret....Lindo despises the train. So when he bought a ticket and actually hopped on the train with me this morning, I was both floored and in love with him all over again :)

Being the total nerds that we are, we played Tank Hero on his phone. There's just something about blowing up little tanks on the train in the wee hours of the morning with my hubby that puts a smile on my heart.

Once in LA (yes. I work in downtown LA and everything you hear about it, is true.) he bought me my favorite over-caffeinated and way over caramelized drink and a overstuffed burrito with hash browns (an old country girls favorite). Then he kissed me good-bye and walked lonely back to the train for an hour and a half solo train ride.

Heroes do exist in real life.

Needless to say, I have been smiling like it's my birthday and I have been pulled on stage and crowned by Nicki Manaj herself.

Best Valentine's Day EVER.

I love this story! I think it is so important to remember that when a spouse is making efforts in her career, it is for our benefit as well. Your spouse was so romantic to recognize that with such sweet and selfless gestures!

What a sweet post! It's obvious from the pics that you and Lindo have a beautiful relationship. Isn't it great when husbands do those sweet things?

Hope you'll stop by and say hello <3

That is so sweet! I think the gift of time and thoughtfulness are better than anything he could've picked up at a store.

And he may just be a believer in Valentine's Day after all. :)
