20 degrees F.
I survived (barely), but that was mostly due to the heated seats in the rental car he got (best invention ever). A handsome man picking you up in a car with heated seats? Life is pretty good.
|Me with my carry-on. It's actually my mom's. |
She drove me to the airport and gave me snacks and another $20.
Best mom ever.
Back in our hotel room, he told me he had a Valentine's Day gift for me and I needed to close my eyes. With my eyes shut, he prefaced it by saying the gift was practical, but also a symbol of our new life in Virginia, a representation of us settling down and growing roots. He handed me a Williams-Sonoma bag. I opened my eyes and squealed at the sight.
You know a man loves you when he gives you something from Williams-Sonoma, aka the best and most overpriced home goods store in America.
Inside the bag was a pepper-grinder that cost more than my dry-cleaning. To a person who loves to cook, a nice pepper-grinder is pretty much the best thing ever.
"But that's not all," he said. "Close your eyes." He rummaged in his food cabinet and placed something down on the counter. "Open your eyes."
And that's when my hands started to shake. I gripped his shoulders for balance and breathlessly asked, "How did you know?! HOW DID YOU KNOW?!"
The man had ordered Girl Scout Cookies for me. Two boxes. Samoas. If you think about it. this took some serious forethought.
Words cannot explain the depth of my love for this man (or Girl Scout Cookies).
Have you gotten your Girl Scout Cookies yet?
What's you favorite?
Have you tried throwing them in a milkshake?
It's life changing.
