The little things

Sometimes it's the smallest things that can make me smile.

Mr. Banker is home from visiting his family.  And my spirits are instantly lifted.
I drove him from the airport to my house for dinner.
When we came inside, he handed me a bag with what I could tell was a shot glass.

It says "Got Lobstah? Rhode Island".
When I read it, I smiled and he said it made him think of me because we are constantly joking about his accent.
I wasn't expecting him to bring me anything, but I thought this was a particularly thoughtful/cute little gift.

We had dinner and laughed and had the best time together.

I can't stop smiling tonight.

During dinner, it occurred to me that he has NEVER said anything negative to me about my surgery.  He is so supportive.  I hadn't made a game plan for dinner, I figured we'd figure it out after he got here.  He was starving, so I made a few suggestions, and he let me choose because he said he understood that it was harder for me to eat than for him.  That's so nice compared to the constant berating I got from Robocop.

He really makes me happy.


  1. And you need someone to make you happy. If you aren't happy, it's not worth the time and effort.

    I'm going to be keeping my fingers crossed for you and Banker. You remind me of when I first started seeing the ELB. I must have grinned like a fool whenever we were together.

    I think you're twitterpated. Look it up. :) has the best definition. It's the best feeling in the world, isn't it?

    1. Yes, I'm twitterpated.... AND I have heard the word before ;) I always say I'm smitten, so I'll have to switch it up some. If he heard me say I'm twitterpated, he would have NO CLUE what that means.

  2. I'm so happy for you...Love the shot glass too! Thoughtful!

  3. Be twitterpated is the best!! So fun!
