It's been a while since I wrote a "my Donald" post

Donald and I celebrate all sorts of little nonsense "anniversaries"  First email, first I love yous, first kiss, first date (yes they occurred in that order).  But I have to admit after 16 years of knowing one another we've gotten less romantic about the whole thing. Our  first kiss anniversary was Monday.

What did I do about it?  NOTHING.  I mean not even a card.  As good as it got was I let him know that I remembered what day it was  I kissed him a few extra times on Monday too. 

More often than not, because of our work schedules, my Donald goes to bed before me.  In fact, he is sleeping now and I am typing and watching the news.  Same thing last night.  I was working on a new Pinterest board I was going to let go live today and Donald had an early morning so he went to bed before me.  So last night a little after 1 a.m. I closed my laptop and headed in to go bed.  

I pulled back the covers in the dark and there was lump in my bed.  A hard lump. (no it wasn't Donald)

I'm sure some folks will read this and  roll their eyes.  But he really is the sweetest man I ever met. I'm going to have to do something really special for him very soon.

Very cool, Tammy, that you celebrate these special moments and continue to do so. I'd say you have a very special relationship that just continues to grow

Tammy - I a world that sometimes seems to be coming apart at the seams, it is great to know there are couples out there who remain devoted as you and Donald seem to be.  You are blessed!

Tammy,

If you got that for a first anniversary "kiss," I can't wait for the next "anniversary" present.

Awww, what a wonderful gift from Donald -- and the real gift is that he still remembers all those wonderful reasons for celebrating.

Tammy - I'm in no way rolling my eyes!  I love how your Donald is so very thoughtful.  And, I know you are too.  Celebrating all of the little moments and being appreciative of each other are what's special.

Debbie Gartner He really is that and a bag of chips

Kat Palmiotti he's very sweet to me and very thoughtful

Roger D. Mucci I always worry people will read my posts about about Donald and think... no way, a guy can NOT be that nice and thoughtful. LOL  Friends who meet him usually get to see first hand

Kathy Streib he is my heart and really is the best man I've ever known.

More than likely because they've never been that kind or been treated that kindly by someone.....that's my guess.

Tammy, this is the third time I'm trying to write this comment.  I can't seem to post.  Hopefully this one works.  Donald is a sweety.

Tammy, it sounds like you never forget to do special things for Donald and I think he got the message. I hope this is just the beginning of more wonderful surprises for you and the next hard lump you get is, well... you know.
