so when mark arrived home from a business trip on february 15 with a valenine gift, i was indeed surprised! just the thought of him browsing in gift shops makes me smile. unwrapping the awkward shaped package i discover this:
a. very. large. rooster.
now some women would not be pleased with this. they may be looking for gems, or chocolate, or red roses. but me? i simply adore it. knowing how much i enjoy raising our little flock of chickens; knowing i truly love surprises; knowing how much i love sharing this country life with him, he has chosen the perfect gift for me, however unconventional it may be.
everyday gift: a valentine surprise
