with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My husband is pretty rare in that he’s really good at shopping for me. Like, really good. There are times when I want something in particular, and will suggest as much, but often I leave it up to him. He seems to have a knack for buying me something that I didn’t know I even wanted, and I’ll love it so much.
One such example is the ring he bought me for Christmas. I have a bit of a thing for necklaces, and he will often add to my collection of costume jewelery. Instead, he surprised me with real jewelry. The last time he bought me real jewelry was when he bought my engagement ring and wedding band.
This past week I read a sweet story that my friend Amanda posted. She had found a great set of used leather couches and had suggested to her husband that they buy them. It turned into an argument, which turned into him conceding, which turned into her finally calling about the couches, only to have them have already been sold. I’ll let you read the rest of the story, but I’m pretty impressed with her husband’s ability to pull off a surprise.
How about you? Have you ever been surprised by a big or unexpected gift? Or have you really surprised your spouse?
