I was in total Shock and Awe!

My handsome hubby (HH) got me the most thoughtful gift that I have ever received this year for my birthday! In order to completely understand my absolute shock and awe, you will have to have a little background here goes! For those of you that might not know, my HH and I got married this August in the Dominican Republic.
The wedding was absolutely beautiful and so very was so perfect! I loved the fresh beautiful flowers that adorned my room at the resort everyday. The maids were so very sweet and so thoughtful. The bouquet that I carried for the wedding was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. After the wedding ceremony, I placed my bouquet in a vase in my room carefully changing the water each morning. I wanted to take this beautiful bouquet home to dry/preserve and save as a keepsake forever.

I was in for the shock surprise of my life when I arrived at the airport to depart home. I was told by the customs agents that I was unable to take the flowers home, but could take the greenery and ribbon. I thought to myself, "is this some kind of cruel joke?" I mean the greenery and ribbon, ha! I was mad as a snake to say the least and proceeded to have a mini emotional breakdown. As I ripped the ribbon off the bouquet that I so carefully tried to keep fresh for it's trip back to Oklahoma, I cried. The tears would not stop coming and all I could think of was the fact that it meant so much to me and I was throwing it away! I was so very upset!
My birthday was last Wednesday and to my surprise I came home to find the most thoughtful gift that anyone has ever given me! My HH had an exact replica of the bouquet that I loved so much made for me....was this a joke? trashed long lost wedding bouquet? There was no joke about it, I have the sweetest hubby ever! He secretly emailed the florist a picture of my bouquet and she made it exact...even down to the ribbon! If I didn't know, I would think that this was the exact same bouquet that I carried down the aisle the day that I married my best friend and love of my life!

I am more and more amazed everyday at the way that he loves me! This was by far the best gift that anyone has ever given to me...such a sweetheart HH is, I love him to pieces!

I hope that everyone had a great Monday! I had a great time in Dallas over the weekend and will have a post tomorrow about all the fun!
