Inside, the sentiment ends with:   . . . quite a latt√©.

My husband Dave is away in Las Vegas right now, since Friday, for a professional conference. 

I’m not sure when it began, but during our nearly 22 years of marriage, a ritual between us formed.  It is nothing big, and I suppose silly to some . . . just a small gesture of love, but isn’t it amazing how such a thing infuses your life and makes you realize just how deeply, madly you love someone?

Every morning, my darling hubby brings me a hot, steaming cuppa coffee, fortified with my favorite french vanilla creamer, and he kisses me awake to start the day.   I made this for him, and plan to give it to him on our anniversary next month.

At the risk of getting ridiculously sappy, I’ll leave it at that.

  1. Well, my DH doesn’t drink coffee either (he’s a coke man) but he takes pleasure in making it for me! 26 years and counting…aren’t we the lucky ones??!! Thanks for sharing Julie!

  2. Julie – This is an adorable card and what an adorable ritual you guys have! My husband leaves very early each a.m. but the coffee is always made and waiting for me when I roll out of bed.

    I thank God for my wonderful husband.
